Upon providing your ZIP code, you’ll see the electric rates in your area. It is vital to do so, as Texas energy prices vary depending on where you live.

Fixed-rate plans in Abilene

Fixed-rate plans allow you to lock-in a steady monthly energy rate with a contract – usually 12-36 months. It makes budgeting easier because your energy bill will be predictable, not including taxes and fees. Since there is a contract, you may be charged an early termination fee (ETF) if you cancel your plan early. 

Variable-rate plans in Abilene

These plans can feature a low-introductory rate and no contract. However, your price changes monthly, meaning there are some months where prices are higher, and others when your price is lower. The benefit is you’re free to switch plans as needed without any charges.

SaveOnEnergy’s tips for easy electricity service setup

  • Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
    • Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
    • % renewable energy sourcing
    • Early termination fees
  • Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
  • Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.
