Energy providers and utility companies in Mesquite

If you live in a deregulated city like Mesquite, it’s important to understand the difference between energy providers and utility companies.

Electricity rates in my area

It’s likely that electricity rates in your area aren’t the same as they are in other parts of Texas — even with the same plan. That’s because energy rates vary due to different utility transmission charges and other local fees. It’s important to remember that if you aren’t specific about your location when searching for a new energy plan, you could end up viewing inaccurate rates that aren’t available in your area.

Moving to Mesquite?

If you’re relocating to Mesquite, you may be able to bring your current energy plan with you. If that’s not the case, however, you can switch to a new plan. As a consumer, the process of switching power companies is simple: All you need to do is sign up for a new plan, and your new provider will take care of the rest — without interrupting your service.

Types of plans in Mesquite

Energy customers in Mesquite have a number of plans to choose from, including fixed-rate, variable-rate, no-deposit, and green energy plans. You can find a breakdown of these plan types below, or you can learn more in our guide to picking an energy plan.

Fixed-rate plans in Mesquite

If you pick a fixed-rate plan, you’ll enter into a set contract with your provider (usually between 12–36 months). During this time, your rate won’t change, which is ideal if you value consistency in your utility costs. On the downside, fixed-rate plans often come with a penalty fee if you end your contract early.

Variable-rate plans in Mesquite

Unlike fixed-rate plans, variable-rate plans do not come with a set contract. Instead, they’re month-to-month agreements in which your energy rate fluctuates depending on the market price of electricity. This can save you money when demand is low, but it can also increase your bill when demand spikes. On the plus side, there are no ETFs, and you can switch plans without penalty.

No-deposit plans

Most power companies will require a deposit before beginning service. You can bypass this requirement if you have a high credit score or if you sign up for a no-deposit plan, like a prepaid plan. Prepaid energy plans don’t require a credit check and allow you to pay in advance for your electricity usage.

Green electricity in Mesquite

If you’d like to go green with your electricity plan, Texas is the perfect place to do it. The Lone Star State is a renewable energy powerhouse, particularly in terms of wind and solar generation. In Mesquite, you can find 100% green plans from companies like Gexa Energy and Green Mountain Energy.

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.
