Texas energy prices change throughout the year and normally spike during the summer months. Energy demand increases when it’s hot outside because residences and businesses rely more on their air conditioners. Here are some of the best Reliant Energy plans offered in Texas this summer.
Basic Power 12 plan
This is the lowest rate that Reliant Energy currently offers on the Choose Energy marketplace. At 11.1 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), our energy experts estimate this plan would have an average bill of $111 each month.
The Basic Power 12 plan is a fixed-rate plan, meaning the price you pay for every kWh of energy you use will stay the same each month. Fixed-rate plans are especially valuable in summer when energy rates can fluctuate. The contract for this plan lasts 12 months and there is a $150 termination fee if you end this contract early – although this doesn’t apply if you are moving to a new address.
Truly Free Weekends 12 plan
Reliant Energy’s Truly Free Weekends 12 plan offers a free usage period to users. Every weekend from Friday at 8 p.m. to Monday at 12 a.m., you will not be charged for the electricity your home consumes. This makes the Truly Free Weekends plan an especially appealing option for consumers who travel or are away from home during the week.
This plan’s current rate is 14.1 cents per kWh and has an average estimated bill of $141 per month. One important aspect of this plan is that it is indexed, meaning the rate you are charged each month is tied to a pricing formula and is subject to change.
Truly Free Nights 12 plan
Much like the Truly Free Weekends plan, this Reliant Energy option offers another free usage period. Users will enjoy free energy every night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The rate for this plan is also 14.1 cents per kWh. Choose Energy estimates the average monthly bill for this plan would be $141.
This plan’s contract length is 12 months and its rate is indexed, which could lead to variations in how much you pay each month. The Truly Free Night 12 plan comes with a $150 early termination fee if you end your service before your contract expires.
