Solar Saver 12 Reviews & Rates | Order Online

Solar Saver 12 is a 12 month n/a electricity plan from TXU Energy with rates from 15.9 to 24.2 cents per kWh.

Perhaps for this Solar Saver 12, it might be easier to suggest who shouldn't buy this plan. This plan's name and mission statement scream green energy, but it's not a green energy plan. It's also not a solar buyback plan, or anything particularly related to Solar other than the name, as far as I can tell. It's percentage of renewable energy is just 25%, less than the average of any regular electricity plan in Texas.

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

Solar Saver 12 Review

Pros and Cons

Pros: Plan has a bill credit. Cons: Plan name might be misleading, plan is expensive.

Our Review

TXU's Solar Saver 12 is somewhat misleading. Normally when we see a plan with "solar" or "sunshine" or anything similar in the name, we assume a 100% green energy plan. And Solar Saver 12 says it's energy supports Texas solar farms. However, looking deeper, it isn't exactly clear how it supports solar farms in any particular way. The plan is only made up of 25% renewable energy, when the state average of every plan is 31%. So it's actually less environmentally friendly than the average electricity plan. Additionally, this plan as a high monthly recurring charge at $9.95, and a high energy charge in general. That's paying a green energy premium for a plan that isn't green energy.
