Dallas energy rates

Dallas, America’s ninth-largest city, boasts a population of 1.34 million – part of a metro teeming with 6.8 million. Dallas residents need cheap electricity prices without sacrificing reliability and efficiency.

Energy prices in Dallas vary. Typically, rates are cheapest when the year ends and begins, with rates being the most expensive at the beginning of spring. That’s been even more prevalent in the past year because of concerns over a dip in the state’s energy capacity.
