Simple Rate 12 Reviews & Rates | Order Online

Simple Rate 12 is a 12 month fixed rate electricity plan from TXU Energy with rates from 15.9 to 21.2 cents per kWh.

Who should buy this plan? I suppose a case could be made for people who simply don't have any concerns about monthly utility bills and what the costs are to keep their home powered. I'm not attempting to be glib or flippant, but this plan is expensive compared to the rest of the market and offers nothing customers can't get elsewhere, for cheaper.

The Monthly Recurring Charge is 9.95, and the Early Termination Fee is 150.

Our Review

TXU's Simple Rate 12 plan is a fixed rate plan. What that means is that the kWh rates between the usage levels of 500, 1000, and 2000 are pretty close together, so there won't be any big bill fluctuations based on usage. Unfortuantely, the Energy Charge on this plan is still extremely high, 25% higher than some other's weve seen, and the rate in question doesn't seem in include transportation fees from the utility. What that adds up to is almost certainly an exremely high bill every month. The plan also has a very high monthly recurring charge of $9.95 a month, which is pretty standard for TXU. There are similar plans on the market for much, much cheaper.
