How weather affects Alvin electricity rates

Alvin residents could pay more for electricity during the summer when temperatures often exceed 90 degrees. However, when temperatures are milder in October through April, the energy demand decreases. 

As energy demand fluctuates, so do energy rates. That means you could find more expensive rates in summer and cheaper rates in fall and spring. The best time to lock in an affordable rate is during moderate seasons.

Types of plans in Alvin

While searching for electricity rates, you’ll find that there are a variety of plans to choose from, including fixed-rate, no-deposit, prepaid, and variable-rate. Choosing the right plan can be difficult – that’s why we’re here to help. We have energy experts standing by to answer your questions. Simply give us a call with the number on your screen. 

Fixed-rate plans in Alvin

With a fixed-rate plan, you lock in your energy rate for the term. Most contracts last from 12-36 months. This plan type provides a consistent electric bill since you do not have to worry about price fluctuations. However, taxes and fees may vary month-to-month. If you decide to cancel your contract early, you may be charged an early termination fee (ETF). 

Variable-rate plans in Alvin

These plans feature lower introductory rates and no contracts. Your energy rate depends on the wholesale cost of energy. This means your monthly electric bill fluctuates greatly depending on weather, energy demand, and other factors. However, you can switch providers at any time because there is no contract. 

Green electricity in Alvin

Texas leads the nation in green energy production. It sits first in the U.S. for wind energy generation and is in the top five for solar energy generation.

Each electricity plan in Texas contains some percentage of renewable energy. To find the exact amount, check the plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL).
