Electric plans in Texas

Thanks to deregulation, Texas residents have many types of plans to choose from. Your lifestyle and needs will help determine the best one for you. Some popular options include:

  • Fixed Rate Plans. These plans have fixed rates set in your contract and you’ll pay that same rate every month, regardless of fluctuations in the energy market. If you value stability, a fixed-rate plan may work well for you.
  • Variable Rate Plans. These plans are subject to change depending on energy market volatility. This means you can get a cheaper rate when demand is low, but might be stuck paying more when demand is high. Variable rate plans are best for those who like flexibility.
  • Green Energy Plans. These plans allow consumers to offset up to 100 percent of their household or business’ carbon emissions from the building’s electricity consumption.
  • Prepaid Plans. These plans do not require a credit check and allow consumers to pay for energy in advance. They’re also a popular no deposit option.

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 electric 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.
