Current energy trends in Midland
Over the summer, Texas saw record-high energy demand, which led to higher electricity rates in Midland and the rest of the state. However, as fall approaches and temperatures drop, it’s a good time to browse rates and compare your options to lock in a lower rate before winter comes around. (This information is accurate as of September 2022).
How weather affects Midland electricity rates
Summers are hot in Midland, with average highs in July reaching 96 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters are milder than much of the country, but January lows still dip into the 30s. Energy prices tend to spike during periods of extreme weather, so look when the temperatures are more moderate (like in spring or winter) to find the best deal.
Fortunately, switching energy plans is easy — especially when you use a marketplace like SaveOnEnergy. When you find a great price, you can sign up for a fixed-rate plan to lock in that low rate for a year or longer (just make sure to check out if the plan includes a penalty for canceling early). After signing up online, your new power company will take care of the details, so you shouldn’t experience any interruption to your electricity service.

Types of plans in Midland
You’ll find multiple electricity plans on SaveOnEnergy, including fixed-rate, no-deposit, and green energy options. Here’s a brief overview of the most common types. Call the phone number on your screen to learn more or sign up.
Fixed-rate plans in Midland
These plans include a contract (typically 12-36 months), during which your electricity rate will not change. Fixed-rate plans are excellent for locking in a cheap rate, but be aware that they’ll usually charge an early termination fee (ETF) if you cancel before your plan expires.
Variable-rate plans in Midland
Variable-rate plans don’t include a contract or a fixed rate. Instead, your rate will rise and fall each month depending on the current wholesale price of electricity. When demand is high, you’ll end up with more expensive energy bills, but you’ll have the option to cancel or change plans at any time (penalty-free).
Many energy companies will run a credit check and charge a deposit before beginning service. If you can’t afford a deposit or don’t want to authorize a credit check, you can use the filters on SaveOnEnergy to find a no-deposit electricity plan. With these plans, you’ll pre-pay for electricity service and top up your account when it runs low.
Green electricity in Midland
Consider switching to a green energy plan if you want to live a more sustainable lifestyle. These eco-friendly plans are popular in Texas because the state leads the country in wind energy production (it also ranks highly in solar power generation). Many Midland electricity providers offer fully-green options, with companies like Chariot Energy, Gexa Energy, and Green Mountain Energy specializing in 100% renewable plans.

- 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.
