Texas energy plan FAQs

Who do I call if there’s an outage?

Even when you choose your own energy supplier, your local utility still delivers your electricity and maintains the infrastructure. If you experience an outage or notice a downed power line, you should call your local utility.

What happens if I move?

If you move, it’s easy to get your energy service set up at your new address. You can keep your current plan. If you’re leaving the service area or want to switch to a new provider without paying a termination fee.

What is a fixed-rate plan?

When you sign up for a fixed-rate energy plan, you pay the same electricity supply rate for your entire contract. These contracts range from 12 to 36 months and are well-suited for customers who want the stability that comes with paying the same rate each month.

What is a variable-rate plan?

Unlike a fixed-rate plan, a variable rate doesn’t have a locked-in monthly rate. Rates fluctuate with the market, meaning customers could see their rates increase or decrease in any given month.

Why does SaveOnEnergy run a credit check?

When you sign up for an energy plan, you’ll usually have to go through a credit check. You can avoid this by signing up for a prepaid energy plan or qualifying for a no-deposit energy plan due to good credit.

A few things to remember

  • 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.

Ambit Energy electric rates in my area

Your energy rate varies depending on where you live. Someone you know in one part of the state might pay an entirely different rate from the quote you receive, mainly because of differences in utility transmission fees.

Because of these price differences, it’s important that you get a quote for your specific zip code. But you don’t have to do a web search for “cheap electric rates near me” or “best electric rates in my area.” Instead, use the Save On Energy marketplace. Just enter your zip code on the screen.
