Types of plans in Wichita Falls

When you sign up for your Wichita Falls energy plan, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of plan types, including fixed-rate, variable-rate, no-deposit, and prepaid plans. Below, you’ll find more information about some of the different plan types available. 

Fixed-rate plans in Wichita Falls

A fixed-rate energy plan has a contract that ranges from 12 to 36 months. Your energy rate is locked into your contract, meaning it doesn’t fluctuate with the energy market. The good news is you aren’t vulnerable to price hikes. On the other hand, you won’t enjoy savings when the energy rates are low, and you’ll pay an early termination fee (ETF) if you end your contract early.

Variable-rate plans in Wichita Falls

A variable-rate energy plan doesn’t require you to enter a contract, but it also doesn’t lock in your rate. Instead, your energy rate each month is based on the current wholesale energy market. When energy prices are high, your energy bill will increase. But during other months, you’ll save money on your electricity bill.

Green electricity in Wichita Falls

Green energy may not be top of mind when you think about electricity in Texas. Texas is the country’s number one producer of electricity from wind. Its monthly generation of solar energy consistently ranks within the country’s top five, usually second behind California. As a result, Wichita Falls residents have an easy time finding affordable green energy plans.

Every energy plan in Texas contains a portion of renewable energy. The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) identifies what percentage comes from renewable sources. Most providers include some green energy in their plans. Other providers, including Gexa Energy, Chariot Energy, and Green Mountain Energy, sell plans solely powered by green 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.

How weather affects Wichita Falls electricity rates

Wichita Falls has seasonal variances that influence the costs of electricity. In July and August, the average temperature is 98 degrees. Due to the heat, many households rely on using their air conditioning more. That increases the energy demand and the price. On the other hand, temperatures during other times of the year tend to be more moderate. 

One of the best ways to save on energy is shopping during the low-demand months when energy rates tend to be lower. Instead of shopping in the summer, aim to shop in the fall, winter, or spring.
