Energy providers and utility companies in Dallas

As a resident of a deregulated city like Dallas, it’s important to recognize the difference between electricity providers and utilities. On one hand, your provider is responsible for purchasing or generating electricity, which they sell to you in a plan. In contrast, utilities are in charge of delivering electricity to your property and responding to power outages.

  • Utility company in Dallas: Oncor Electric Delivery is the utility company in Dallas. Utilities are determined by geography, so you aren’t able to choose yours. 
  • Electricity providers in Dallas: You can pick from numerous Dallas electricity providers, ensuring that you find the best deal. Some of the most well-known suppliers include Reliant Energy, TXU Energy, Frontier Utilities, and Pulse Power.

Power outages in Dallas

When your electricity goes out, you need to contact your utility company (Oncor), as they’re responsible for the power infrastructure in your area. Don’t contact your electricity provider.

Electricity rates in my area

When you’re shopping for a new plan, make sure that you’re only comparing rates in your area. Each utility has its own transmission charges, which means that electricity prices across Texas vary from city to city — even if you’re looking at the same plan and provider.

So how do you discover the best electricity rates in Dallas? Your first thought might be to search online for generic terms like “best electric company near me” or “electricity rates in my area.” But it would be more efficient to use a reputable marketplace like SaveOnEnergy to explore multiple rates and providers in one place.

Enter your ZIP code above to find and compare electric rates in Dallas.

How weather affects Dallas electricity rates

Texas is known for its hot summer temperatures and mild winters. The average high temperature in Dallas is 96 in July and August, but just 56 degrees in January. As a result of these different temperatures, electricity demand also varies throughout the year.

Electricity rates tend to be cheaper when demand is low and more expensive when demand is high. One of the best ways to save on electricity costs is to lock in a fixed-rate plan when rates are low.

Moving to Dallas?

As the third-biggest city in Texas, Dallas is home to more than 1.3 million residents and is the centerpiece of the sprawling Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. If you’re relocating to Dallas, you can rely on SaveOnEnergy to browse electricity rates in your area and lock in an affordable plan that suits your energy habits.

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 Dallas

As you look for new electricity providers, you’ll notice multiple types of plans to choose from. If you want to learn more about your options, check out our guide to picking an energy plan or call us at the phone number on this screen.

Fixed-rate plans in Dallas

When you sign up for a fixed-rate plan, your electricity rate will be locked in for the duration of your contract (generally 12 months or longer). On the positive side, these plans give you a more predictable energy bill. On the downside, you’ll likely have to pay an early termination fee if you cancel before your contract is up.

Variable-rate plans in Dallas

In many respects, variable-rate plans are the opposite of fixed-rate plans: you won’t need to sign a long-term agreement, but your rate is liable to fluctuate between billing periods. They can be good short-term options but could end up being more expensive if rates spike.

Green electricity in Dallas

Across the country, Texas is leading the way in green energy. Specifically, the Lone Star State creates the most electricity from wind of all 50 states. It’s also within the top five states for solar energy generation.

Whenever you buy an electricity plan in Texas, it will come with at least a small percentage of renewable energy, with some plans containing 100 percent green energy. Check your Electricity Facts Label (EFL) for more details. Similarly, a handful of Dallas electricity providers exclusively offer renewable plans, including Green Mountain Energy and Gexa Energy.

Business energy plans in Dallas

Like residential energy, commercial electricity is also deregulated. If you own a company in Dallas, you can use SaveOnEnergy to get the best energy rate for your business. To learn more, visit our commercial energy rates page.
