The local weather can have a huge impact on electricity rates. In Texas, temperatures tend to average around 95 degrees in the summer, causing energy demand to surge. As a result, energy rates also tend to spike during this time. However, energy rates tend to fall during other parts of the year when temperatures are milder and demand is lower. 

You can save money on electricity by shopping during those low-demand seasons. Usually, the most affordable seasons to shop for electricity are the fall and spring.

Some suppliers do a credit check as part of the screening process. Bypass this with a no-deposit plan. With it, you don’t have to worry about a credit check and you can pay for electricity upfront.
