Electricity Rates are coming down in Brownsville

Everyone wants to know the best electricity plan to buy, and there's never an easy answer because everyone's needs are different. Do you live in an apartment, house, or mansion, because every plan has different rates at different uses.

Apartment users should look at Frontier's Saver Value 12. It's one of the few plans where the rates are cheapest the less you use. APG&E's True Classic 6 is another good one, as well as Gexa's Eco Saver Lite.

Regular sized home users have more options, but also more confusion. Bill Credits and Tiered rates can make billing complicated if you don't use a minimum amount of electricity for some of these plans. Reliant's Retail Power Savings 24 is a good plan because it has a good rate, and its bill credit is uncomplicated, just be sure to use over 1k. Cirro's Smart Value 24 is similar.

Live in a giant house on a sprawling estate? Doesn't mean you want to overspend on electricity. 4 Change's Power Maxx Saver 24 is a great plan. Constellation's 12 Month Flat Tier Product is an excellent choice. It's a flat low rate for the first 2k of usage, then a low rate for everything over 2k.

5 Things to Know Before You Order Brownsville 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 Brownsville. 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.
