Who Has the Cheapest Electric Rates And Bills in Houston?

Which Plans Have The Cheapest Electric Rates And Bills?

Shop and compare the cheapest electric rates and bills! Find out just how much you could save on your Texas electricity.
Believe the hype! Sometimes the cheapest advertised electric rates and bills really are THAT good!

If you’ve ever seen retail energy advertising, you may have come away with the feeling that what you’re being sold is too good to be true. Sometimes, that instinct is absolutely correct. An electricity plan’s low rate doesn’t always translate to a low bill. However, there are other times when the low rate actually translates to a low bill. This is one of those times, and the power plans described below have the cheapest electric rates and bills in Houston.  

Straightforward Pricing For The Cheapest Electric Rates and Bills

When a plan’s rate and price align, it means that plan has straightforward pricing. No tiered rates, free nights, free weekends, or bill credit traps complicate the math on your monthly bill. These simply priced plans may have a base charge, but otherwise, you pay a flat rate for the power you consume. No gimmicks, and no price tricks. Just a predictable monthly electricity bill.  

Low Rate Plus A Base Charge

The two plans with the cheapest electric rates and bills come from Energy Texas. The Bigger Than Texas 24 plan gives you fixed rate electricity for two years while the Gruene 18 plan lasts for 18 months. Both plans have a $4.95 base charge. Though the longer plan has a slightly higher rate, the difference is $0.001 per kWh. Both advertise an average rate of 12.0 cents per kWh. Aside from the contract length, the only appreciable difference is the longer plan’s early termination fee is $200 compared to the shorter plan’s $175.  

Truly Flat Pricing

If you don’t care for the base charge on the Energy Texas plans, you might like the Simply Green 30 plan from Rhythm. This 30-month plan has an average rate of 12.1 cents per kWh. It has no base charge, but the per-kWh price is slightly higher. The plan’s early termination fee is $10 for every month remaining on the contract term. So if you can cancel with 15 months remaining, then you’re out $150. However, cancel with two months left, and breaking the contract will only cost you $20. This can come in handy in spring of 2024 when you’re trying to shop for a new power plan. Spring is when rates are typically lowest.  

A Power Plan For Your Usage

With these plans, you actually can believe the hype. Your bill rises and falls in proportion to your energy consumption and conservation. Find more information about these plans and many more at https://www.texaselectricityratings.com.  

Avoid These Sneaky Bill Credit Traps

That great, low price plan could wind up costing you more if you don't understand your usage. Learn how you can avoid sneaky bill credit traps!

How Can You Avoid Sneaky Bill Credit Traps?

Bill credit electricity plans are tempting. Electric companies advertise enticingly low rates to persuade you to sign up for a long-term electricity plan. But if you pick the wrong one - wham!- you pay too much for electricity. As a result, you have to make the choice of whether to fork over a large early termination fee or stick with your ill fitting plan. However, you can avoid sneaky bill credit traps by shopping smart with Texas Electricity Ratings

Understand Your Monthly Electricity Usage

The first step in shopping for Texas electricity is to understand your usage. Whether you want a bill credit plan or something else, your past usage helps you evaluate whether any plan is right for you. The handy-dandy bill calculator on Texas Electricity Ratings gives a quick reading on how plans jive with your normal usage.   Beyond that, you should evaluate bill credit plans on each month’s normal usage. Your past usage is the best predictor for future usage. Electricity prices have risen since last year, but your usage probably won’t change much. Even if you increase your energy conservation this year, your usage pattern will be similar.  Compare a plan’s bill credits to your last year of power bills. If you would have earned the plan’s bill credits during most months, then that plan is a contender. In other words, you can miss out on bill credits a few months out of the year and still have a viable plan. However, missing bill credits too often can bloat your monthly power expense unnecessarily.  

Just Barely Earn The Bill Credit

Bill credit plans are optimal for you when you just barely earn the credit. If the bill credit starts at 1,000 kWh, make sure you use that much but not much more. The price for each kWh of electricity is almost always higher than plans without bill credits. This is how the retail electricity providers maximize their profit. Use enough power to earn the bill credit but not so much you wind up paying more than you would with other plans. 

Bill Credits In Action

So how do these bill credits work in the real world? Let’s take for example these three Houston bill credit plans with the lowest rates available right now: 
Retail Electricity Provider Plan Average Price @ 1,000 kWH Average Bill Bill Credit Terms
Gexa Energy Gexa Saver Deluxe 12 6.9 cents $128 $100 at 1,000 to 2,000 kWh
Frontier Utilities Best Value 12 6.9 cents $113 $75 at 1,000 to 1,500 kWh
New Power Texas Power of Credit 12 7.2 cents $127 $95 at 1,000 kWh
  As you can see, each of the three bill credit plans has different terms. For example, if you have consistent usage below 1,000 kWh, then none of these plans are right for you. But if you have predictable usage above 1,500 kWh, you have some interesting options. Specifically, you can take advantage of two of the three bill credit plans: Gexa Energy and New Power Texas. You should consider these two plans, but you may have better choices since your usage -- 1,500 kWh -- is far past the usage it takes to earn the bill credit.
