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.

Types of plans in Baytown

With a fixed-rate plan, you’ll have the predictability of paying the same monthly energy rate (not including taxes and fees) for the duration of your contract. This means that changes in energy demand won’t increase the rate you pay. However, you may have to pay an early termination fee (ETF) if you need to cancel your contract early.

Variable-rate plans in Baytown

Your rate will fluctuate each month with a variable-rate plan. Your monthly electricity rate will change with the wholesale cost of energy. When demand increases, you can expect your electric bill to rise as well. Since there is no contract, you can switch providers at any time without charge.
