Cirro Energy, a subsidiary of Dominion Resources, announced on July 17, 2012, that it had expanded its offices in Houston to accommodate for its growing number of customers across the state.

The office will be used to support the high number of people who have switched energy providers since energy deregulation laws went into effect in Texas.

“The decision to expand office space is aimed at providing businesses in Houston and the surrounding areas with the best possible customer service,” said Mike Rose, managing director of Cirro Energy. “Our goal is to ensure that we are offering Texans all the necessary tools to simplify their energy experience with personal support and technology. This proven formula continues to attract more customers every day.”

The new space can hold twice the amount of employers as the old office, and has even more room to grow, with the company expecting a higher number of people to begin switching electricity providers.

Since the laws went into place in 2002, approximately 40 percent of all residential customers in deregulated areas of the state have switched from the former incumbent provider to retail electric providers.
