How weather affects Odessa electricity rates

Like the rest of Texas, weather conditions in Odessa can be extreme. In the summer months, temperatures often reach the mid-90s. Winter temperatures, meanwhile, are commonly in the low 30s. 

Because of the harsh heat, electricity demand spikes in summer – meaning that rates are normally at their highest during the summer months. If you shop for a new plan when demand is lower (like in the winter), you’re more likely to find the cheapest Odessa electricity rates.

Types of plans in Odessa

Odessa residents can choose from several types of electricity plans, including fixed-rate, variable-rate, no-deposit, and green energy plans. Our guide to picking a plan explains more about these plan types. We’ve also highlighted a few of the most popular options below. If you have questions, dial the phone number on your screen to connect with a SaveOnEnergy expert.

Fixed-rate plans in Odessa

If you pick a fixed-rate plan, you’ll enter into a contract with your electric company (generally 12, 24, or 36 months). During this period, your rate won’t change – which normally gives you a more predictable energy bill. On the downside, canceling your contract before it expires could require you to pay an early termination fee (ETF).

Variable-rate plans in Odessa

There are no contracts or guaranteed rates with a variable-rate plan. Instead, your monthly rate will change depending on the energy market. When demand is lower, you could notice some savings. But when demand is high, your bill could skyrocket. You do not have to sign a contract under a variable-rate plan, so you can switch to another plan at any time.

Green electricity in Odessa

Texas is among the country’s largest producers of wind and solar energy – which is great for its residents who want to live more sustainably. In fact, all electricity plans in Texas contain a portion of energy from renewable sources.

In Odessa, there are a variety of green energy plans to choose from, including options from 100% green providers 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.
