Cheap energy prices in Denton

As we’ve mentioned, Denton’s electricity rates tend to fluctuate throughout the year. You can see how prices rise and fall in the following chart, which uses data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA). If you’re interested in finding the cheapest rate, it’s best to shop for a new plan during periods of reduced demand (such as spring or winter).

Energy providers and utility companies in Denton

In deregulated cities like Denton, you’ll purchase power from an electricity provider (also called a retail electricity provider or REP). These companies are tasked with generating the energy that you use at your home or business. However, electricity is delivered to your property by your local utility company. Your utility is also in charge of restoring power during outages and fixing damaged power infrastructure.

  • Utility company in Denton: In Denton, the utility is Oncor Electric Delivery. This company is assigned based on where you live, so you don’t have a choice in utilities. 
  • Denton electricity providers: On the other hand, you’re free to choose from several  REPs that serve your area. Some of the top electricity companies in Denton include Constellation Energy, Direct Energy, and TXU Energy.

Power outages in Denton

If the power goes out, make sure to contact your utility company — not your REP. Your utility is responsible for restoring power and overseeing the local power infrastructure.

Electricity rates in my area

The SaveOnEnergy marketplace offers a simple, streamlined way to find the best electricity rates in Denton.  You can use our site to find rates from numerous providers — all in one place.

When you’re shopping for energy plans, you’ll want to make sure that the rates you’re viewing are specific to your local area. That’s because electricity rates vary from region to region due to various utility charges in different places. SaveOnEnergy uses your ZIP code to help you access accurate, local electricity rates.

How weather affects Denton electricity rates

Denton is known for its high summer temperatures and moderate winters. As a result, there’s increased demand for electricity during the hottest months of the year where it can reach up to 90 degrees. At the same time, the energy demand tends to decrease during the winter when temperatures drop to 50 degrees. 

For the best deal, we recommend shopping for a new plan during periods of reduced demand. In other words, you’re more likely to find cheap electricity in Denton during the winter versus summer.

Types of plans in Denton

There are several different energy plan types to consider, including fixed-rate, variable-rate, and no-deposit plans. You can find out more about these plan options below or in our guide to picking a plan. Still have questions? Reach out to a SaveOnEnergy representative by dialing the phone number on this page.

Fixed-rate plans in Denton

When you choose a fixed-rate plan, you’ll get a guaranteed electricity rate for the length of your contract. Fixed-rate contracts are usually 12, 24, or 36 months. These types of plans are ideal if you’re interested in getting a more stable, predictable energy bill. However, if you end your contract before it’s up, you may have to pay an early termination fee (ETF).

Variable-rate plans in Denton

In many ways, variable-rate plans are the opposite of fixed-rate plans. They’re month-to-month agreements (with no contracts), so you’re free to cancel whenever you’d like. However, they don’t come with a set electricity rate, so the rate you pay will vary each month depending on the current price of energy.

Green electricity in Denton

Green energy plans are popular in Texas thanks to the state’s position as a leading producer of wind and solar power. In fact, all electricity plans purchased in the Lone Star State contain some renewable energy. Plus, specialty providers such as Green Mountain Energy, Gexa Energy, and Chariot Energy sell 100% green plans.

Business energy plans in Denton

Homeowners and renters aren’t the only ones who can take advantage of deregulated energy. If you’re a business owner in Denton, you can work with SaveOnEnergy to create a customized energy plan for your commercial operations.
