Thornton Energy Plans

There are over 200 plans across 40+ providers currently available in the Thornton 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.

Renewable and Green Energy Options in Thornton

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 Thornton 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:
