Types of Energy Rates in Texas

Different electric plans offer different benefits depending what type of energy consumer you are. Energy rates in Texas vary among REPs, but some options to look forward to as far as supply rate types include:

Supply Rate Description
Fixed Fixed-rate supply plans offer consumers a secured rate per kilowatt hour (kWh) throughout a contract period.
Variable Variable-rate supply plans do not offer a secured rate, which means price per kWh may vary each month.
Indexed Indexed-rate supply plans are similar to variable-rate plans, except an indexed plan is tied to the price of a public commodity.
Prepaid Prepaid supply plans do not require a credit check and allows consumers to pay for energy in advance.
Green Green, or renewable, supply plans allow consumers to offset up to 100 percent of their household or business’ carbon emissions from the building's electricity consumption.

Learn why Texas is a leader in green energy

Texas currently produces and consumes more electricity than any other state in the country. This energy consumption is due to its size, but the ample land makes it a major producer of wind power – a renewable, or green, energy source. The environmentally friendly energy created by wind power is available to many Texas residents to supply the electricity in their home or business.

Green energy plans can also include energy produced by comparatively clean natural gas. Consumers can select the percentage of renewable energy they want to receive as part of their energy plan – up to 100 percent.

average Texas electric rates graph

This graph is based on EIA.gov data on the average retail price of electricity (in cents per kWh) for residential customer in Texas.

Although 85 percent of Texans can enjoy energy choice, the remaining 15 percent of residents receive their energy from the local utility company.

Utility companies are responsible for transmission and delivery of electricity even in energy deregulated parts of Texas and should be contacted in the event of a power outage. Your retail energy supplier may provide you competitive electric rates or exceptional customer service, but they cannot repair power lines or restore your service.
