5 Things to Know Before You Order Alvarado Electricity Service

  1. Know your usage. Ok you don't have to "know" but you should have an idea. Are you moving into an apartment/small house, a medium size home or condo, or a large home? Home size matters and relates to the average usage. Electricity rates are based on volume and are based on 500kWh, 1000kWh and 2000kWh use per month. In other words a small house or apartment customer will generally pay a higher rate than a high usage / large house customer.
  2. Know your credit score. Do you have great, average or poor credit? If you have average or poor credit you'll probably be asked to pay a deposit - generally $150-$300. You can also use a no-deposit plan that you pre-pay.
  3. Understand Utility Charges. TDSPs are the local electricity utility company in Alvarado. They own and maintain the poles and wires, read the meters and get your power back on when there's a storm or power loss. About 30-40% of your bill is made up of local utility fees.
  4. All rates displayed on our site include Utility Charges and Fees.

Types of Energy Plans in Alvarado

There are basically three types of Electricity Plans available for residential customers. Houston electricity companies offer a wide range of options and terms. For the most part they are in three categories: fixed-rate and variable rate and pre-paid.

Fixed-Rate Electricity Plans in Houston

Fixed-rate plans will have a set price for the term of the contract. Regardless of weather, natural events, or market volatility, your rate will not change. Fixed-rate plans have a term length of 6, 12, 24, or 36 months. We recommend fixed-rate plans for most customers.

Variable-Rate Electricity Plans Houston

Variable-rate plan rates may change on a monthly basis based on market factors. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility but present more volatility in pricing. Price changes may impact your monthly electricity bill in the form of price hikes. In most cases, we do not recommend variable-rate plans.

Pre-Paid Electricity Plans in Houston

When you sign up for pre-paid electricity, no social security number and no credit check are required.

Signing up takes a few minutes and requires a small upfront payment to establish your account balance. Prepaid providers will text you to add more money as you balance changes. Or you can use your prepaid provider's app to monitor your usage and manage your budget online.
