Energy providers and utility companies in Arlington

Deregulation in Texas gives Arlington residents the power to choose their energy company. In deregulated areas, the energy provider and utility company have different responsibilities. Your energy provider is the company that buys energy and sells it to customers. The utility company transports electricity from the provider to your home. It is also in charge of maintaining local electric infrastructure and restoring power if an outage occurs.

Current energy trends in Arlington

Energy demand in Texas increases with extreme weather, which results in higher electricity rates. Generally, electricity rates are lower during times of less demand, such as the spring and fall. 

How weather affects Arlington electricity rates

Arlington electricity rates change throughout the year. In the summer, energy demand tends to spike, causing electricity rates to increase. However, during times of the year when temperatures are more moderate, demand can decrease and lead to lower energy rates.

Shopping for or switching to a new energy plan when demand is low can allow you to secure a cheaper energy rate. When you switch to a new provider, they’ll handle the setup so you can quickly enjoy your new energy service without interruption. Before switching plans, double-check whether you will have to pay an early termination fee (ETF).

Types of plans in Arlington

When you search for the best electricity rates in Arlington, you’ll find a variety of plan types. You can learn about the most common types below, including fixed-rate, variable-rate, no-deposit, and green energy plans. If you have questions or need more help, call the number on your screen to speak with an energy specialist.

Fixed-rate plans in Arlington

Fixed-rate plans mean you pay the same energy rate through your term, typically ranging from one to three years. Fixed-rate plans remove the worry about price spikes due to inclement weather or market changes. However, ending your contract early may result in an early termination fee. A fixed-rate plan is ideal for customers who want to know what to expect on their monthly bill without needing to track energy usage. 

Variable-rate plans in Arlington

A variable-rate energy plan doesn’t require a contract. Instead, your monthly rate is based on the wholesale energy cost and can change throughout the year. Your energy bill may be higher during some months but lower during others. However, you can switch at any time without paying a fee. A variable-rate plan may be right for you if you’re interested in a flexible contract and enjoy taking advantage of a fluctuating market. 

No-deposit plans

Some providers offer no-deposit options based on your credit score. Prepaid energy plans are the most common no-deposit plan and allow you to pay for your energy ahead of time. In Arlington, Payless Power offers several no-deposit, prepaid energy plans.
