Why is my electricity rate higher than when I signed up?

The rate you see when you sign up is the average rate at that exact amount of usage in one billing cycle.

Some companies try to game the system by applying bill credits between certain usage thresholds. It works great if you are within the margins, but as soon as you leave that band you no longer get that bill credit and your rate per kWh can double. The PUC only requires that companies disclose their average rates at 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. Companies can get around this by giving you a $50 bill credit if you use between 1000 and 2000 kWhs per billing cycle.

The only way to really know what you're getting into is to read your EFL. A 10¢ rate at all usage amounts may end up being cheaper than that 8¢ rate at 1,000 kWh!

Tips For Comparing Texas Electric Providers

Posted on

9 Things to Consider When Choosing a Provider

Comparing electric providers is usually the first step to getting the best deal. Check out these great tips that make it a breeze.
Check out these tips on how to compare Texas electric providers! Choosing the best ones tend to land you the best deals!

Committing to the right provider can save you a lot of hassle. After all, it’s easier to switch plans than it is to switch providers. But, before you sign your contract, you should make sure the electricity provider you’re committing to is truly the best for you. These nine tips will help you compare electric providers to get you the best deal possible.

1. Electric Providers in Your Area

The most important thing to know before you choose a provider is if they serve the area you live in. You can search available the plans and providers by your ZIP code on

2. Your Usage

Before you can compare plans and providers, you need to have a thorough understanding of your average usage. Especially if you’ll opt for a bill-credit plan. Bill-credit plans can save you money if you use a certain amount within a billing period. However, if your usage is above or below a certain threshold, you stand to lose a lot of money.

3. Fixed-Rates vs. Variable Rates

You can compare Texas electric providers by the kinds of rates they offer. Having a plan means signing up for a fixed-rate for a certain time period. On the other hand, if you don’t have a plan or your plan expired, the provider may put you on a variable rate plan. Usually, these are much more expensive than fixed-rate plans would be.

4. Electric Providers' Incentives

A lot of utility companies have special offers when you sign up. Whether it’s a gift card to a grocery store or a discount on the first 3 months of your contract depends on the provider. While these incentives are great, nothing beats a favorable plan with a good rate for long-term savings.

5. Which Electric Providers Charge High Fees

Understanding the fees a provider may charge you can help you compare which one is better for you. Most providers can charge for late payments, disconnection, reconnection, or insufficient funds. You may also need to pay a fee if you use a third-party check cashing store or bill payment center to pay. Make sure you read your EFL and Terms of Service to understand all the charges.

6. Deposits

Most electric providers require a deposit when you sign up. This amount usually ranges from $100 to $500. If you’re looking for a provider who doesn’t charge a deposit, only Payless Power and Hello Energy can help you in Texas. You can also search by city to directly find no-deposit plans available to you.

7. Which Electric Providers Offer Solar Buy-Back

If you have solar panels, you’ll want to find a provider that does solar buy-back. Though your options may be limited in Texas, there are a few that do this. Chariot Energy and Pulse Power are some of the top electric companies offering solar buyback. Energy Texas will also join their ranks soon.

8. Rate Stability

Rates change all the time. But, you can still find reliable rates with certain companies. When you’re looking at the best providers, make sure to check how their rate stability compares. Better rate stability means that the rate you’re signing up for is less likely to change, which is especially important if you’re looking to avoid unexpected price-hikes.

9. Customer Ratings of Electric Providers

Of course, reviews matter. You can see what other customers thought through testimonials. We also concluded our own survey, where we asked you to rate your providers. You can read the people choice, and find the best providers in each category.

Our entire website is dedicated to help you find the best electric providers in Texas. You can compare every aspect of these companies, read reviews from other customers, and buy a plan all in one place.

Are Texas Green Energy Plans Cheaper Right Now?

Posted on

Is Green Energy Cheaper Than Non-Renewable?

Save with Texas Green Energy Plans and cut your monthly electricity bills. Find out which plan is right for your home.
Natural gas prices are pushing Texas electric rates higher but you can actually save more with these Green Energy Plans.

With energy prices soaring due to high natural gas prices, finding a good deal on your electricity plan is getting harder. So, could green energy plans offer lower rates? After all, they don't use fossil fuel, right? Unfortunately, once renewable electricity enters the grid, it mixes with the non-renewable kind. So, a green electric plan won’t necessarily be cheaper just because it’s renewable. But, if you're shopping for cheap rates, there are some great 36-month green plans in Dallas right now that may just be cheaper than non-renewable rates.

The Cheapest Dallas Green Energy Plans Right Now

The cheapest 36-month green electric plan in Dallas right now is 36 Inflation Fix by Energy Texas. With its 10.57 cents per kWh energy charge, $4.95 base charge, and TDU charges, the rate for 36 Inflation Fix comes to 15.3 cents per kWh at 1000 kWh per month usage. Which is the cheapest rate in Dallas right now.

Chariot Energy’s Solarize 36 is also a 100% renewable plan with competitive rates. This plan offers a 15.9 cents per kWh average rate, which consists of an 11.71 cent energy charge and TDU charges.

How Do Non-Renewable Energy Plans Compare?

While non-renewable plans can’t beat 36 Inflation Fix’s cheap 15.3 cents per kWh rates, Pulse Power has two plans that could contend.

Their Free Energy Nights 36 offers 15.5 cents per kWh average rate. And their Free Energy Weekends 36 plan is only a little bit higher at 15.6 cents per kWh. 

The difference between the two lies in the name. While the Free Energy Nights 36 offers a $0 energy charge between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. every day, Free Energy Weekends 36 offers a no energy charge deal between 8 p.m. on Friday and 6 a.m. Monday. You’ll still need to pay TDU charges in the free period.

Planning Ahead When You’re Choosing an Electric Plan

While these rates are comparatively low, they’re still higher than usual due to the economy. So, locking in these rates for 36 months may not be in your best interest. However, it’s still better than going month-to-month.

The best option is to choose a plan with a low electric rate and a favorable early termination fee, so you can switch providers when prices fall. 

While 36 Inflation Fix offers the best rate, they have a $400 early termination fee. The early termination fee for Solarize 36 is $15 for every remaining month in your contract. In comparison, stopping either of Pulse Power’s plans early would only cost you $125. Which makes choosing one of these non-renewable plans a better deal overall, even if they’re not the cheapest rates.

Find the Cheapest Energy Plans in Texas

Electric rates are constantly changing. So, keeping an eye out for a good deal can help you save money on your energy bill. Visit for accurate comparisons, tips, and advice. We’re here to help you find the best electric plan for your home.
