Albany Energy Plans

There are over 200 plans across 40+ providers currently available in the Albany Market. They range from 1 month variable rate plans to 60 months in duration. The easiest way to break all this down is into three categories.

Fixed Rate Plans

Fixed rate plans have terms ranging from 3 to 36 months, and provide a "fixed" rate for your electricity usage.

Variable rate or Month to Month plans

Variable rate plans change on a monthly basis. They are good for those who need short term flexibility,, and cannot commit to a long term contract. Variable rate plans change monthly and may double or triple if there is a weather event. (And we've had a few in the last 5 years). We do not recommend these plans.

Pre-paid Plans

For those who have not built credit, or want to avoid paying a deposit, there are pre-paid plans. Prepaid plans require that you establish an account and fund a balance. Usually $25-$50. Once the account is funded, your electricity is turned on and every day your balance is reduced by the cost of electricity used that day. The provider will contact you via text, app and automated calls to add money to your account as the balance changes.

Electricity Plan Types in Albany

Now that we have explained TDSP rates, the second thing to consider is the type of electricity plans a customer can buy. Each plan will likely end up having different rate scales. There are three types of electricity plans you can choose from when selecting an energy plan that best fits your needs.

Fixed Rate Electricity Plan in Albany

Lock in low energy rates for a period of months ranging from 9 to 36. Be aware that these contracts typically charge an early termination fee if you switch before your term ends.

Variable Rate Electricity Plan in Albany

Month to month contracts with rates that vary. You won't have to worry about deposits or early termination fees, but rates can decrease or increase from month to month.

Pre-Paid Electricity Plan in Albany

You deposit money into an account that your energy company bills directly depending on your use. Keep in mind there are often daily charges with these plans. Rates typically change from month to month.

There are other kinds of plans, such as green plans, or plans that come bundled with things like Smart Thermostats, but for the most part, these three plans are the main three kinds of choices available.

Renewable and Green Energy Options in Albany

Over 30% of the energy produced in Texas is from renewable energy resources such as solar, and wind. In fact, Texas produces more green energy than any other state. And is one of the reasons that Texas has some of the lowest electricity rates in the US.

Every Texas energy provider has about 20% green energy in their mix of energy sources. You can see this in the Fuel Mix section of any Texas Electricity Plan EFL (Electricity Facts Label).

Most Texas electricity companies have a 100% green / renewable energy plan, where 100% of the energy you buy supports renewable energy generators. Some Albany electricity companies are exclusively green, where every plan is 100% green and prices and rates support 100% green energy and renewable generation.

The 3 types of renewable energy plans to select from:

Green energy term plans:
These are similar to traditional 3 to 12 month term plans with 100% green energy.
EV Charging Plans:
Plans targeted at EV owners that are "Time of Use" where you pay low rates at night (between 11PM and 5AM) and a higher rate during the day.
Solar Buy Back Plans:
Plans that allow homeowners who own their solar panels to sell excess power back to their provider or offset their electricity bill with excess power generated by their solar panels and may earn bill credits of up to .25 cents per kWh exported back to the grid.
