Texas energy FAQs

  • Gexa Energy, Frontier Utilities, Express Energy, and 4Change Energy currently offer the cheapest electricity in Texas. 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, the process 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. Texas energy rates will likely decrease when temperatures cool down this fall.

  • Texas electricity bills have been high due to unprecedented energy demand, as hot summer weather is driving up energy usage across the state. The most recent data from the EIA shows Texans paid an average of $155.35 in energy bills in June 2023, which is 9% 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 electricity 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. Some residents and businesses also switch to Texas solar for lower electricity bills.
