Texas energy FAQs

  • Express Energy, Frontier Utilities, 4Change Energy, and Gexa Energy currently offer the cheapest energy rates on the Texas electric market. Remember that energy rates frequently change due to shifts in the energy market and can also differ based on your location.

    To be sure you are checking the most accurate rates in your area, enter your ZIP code or call the number on your screen to speak with an energy expert. Either way is simple, hassle-free, and will help you find a plan with a low electricity rate.

  • Historically, electricity prices increase during seasons of extreme weather or temperatures. Since the early spring weather is currently mild and energy demand is lower, now is a good time to shop for a new electricity rate.

  • Texas electric bills are steadier now because energy demand is mild, and most residents don’t need to use their air conditioning to stay cool. Warmer spring weather may begin to drive up energy usage across the state, in addition to the average energy rate. The most recent data from the EIA shows Texans paid an average of $156 in energy bills, which is 11.8% higher than the national average.

  • No, Texas cannot buy or sell energy across state lines. The power grid in Texas has been independent from the rest of the country since 1935. While other states can transfer electricity across state lines, Texas electricity companies only operate within the Texas Interconnected System, which originated in 1941.

  • There are many ways you can lower your monthly electricity bill in Texas. Cutting back on how much electricity you use each month is the most straightforward way to lower your energy bill. You can also consider turning on ceiling fans during warmer months, investing in energy-efficient appliances, and running your appliances during cooler times of the day instead of “peak hours” when your AC is blasting.
