Your power to choose electricity in Duncanville

Duncanville, Texas, is part of Texas’s deregulated energy market, which lets consumers choose their energy provider. You can compare electric rates from various Duncanville electricity companies, in contrast to traditional energy markets, which  require people to buy electricity from their local utility.

ChooseEnergy.com is not affiliated with Power to Choose, powertochoose.org, or the PUCT.

Duncanville utility companies and energy providers

As a deregulated energy customer, you’ll work with two types of companies to get electricity to your home: utility companies and electricity providers. Your utility is assigned based on where you live, meaning you can’t choose your own. Its job is to deliver energy to your home, fix power outages in its service area, and oversee local power infrastructure. The Duncanville utility company is Oncor Electric Delivery. If you experience a power outage in Duncanville, contact Oncor.

Separately, your electricity company is responsible for generating electricity and selling it to you. In Texas, these companies are also known as retail electricity providers (REPs). There are quite a few Duncanville electricity providers to consider, including well-known Texas energy brands like Direct Energy, Discount Power, and TXU Energy. You can compare electric rates in Duncanville from these providers and more on the Choose Energy marketplace by entering your ZIP code on this page.

Power outages in Duncanville

In a power outage, it’s important to know who to call to get your power restored quickly. Regardless of which electricity supplier you choose, your utility company will handle outages. In Duncanville, call Oncor Electric at 888-313-4747, use their online outage reporter, or text OUT to 66267 to report any issues with your power.

Types of electricity plans in Duncanville

Electricity providers offer various types of energy plans to cover the needs of customers. Here’s an overview of some of the most popular plan types you’ll find from Duncanville electricity providers.

Fixed-rate plans

If you opt for a fixed-rate plan, your electricity rate won’t change for the length of your contract (usually 12, 24, or 36 months). Fixed-rate plans will give you more predictability with your energy costs. However, they also come with an early termination fee (ETF) if you cancel your plan before the contract ends.

Variable-rate plans

On a variable-rate plan, there are no contracts required, which means you can cancel anytime. On the downside, your rate isn’t locked in. With a variable-rate plan, you’ll probably notice that your electric bill will fluctuate month-to-month with the wholesale price of energy.

Prepaid and no-deposit plans

Typically, electricity providers will ask you to pay a deposit if you don’t have a strong credit history. If you’d like to avoid paying a deposit, you should explore no-deposit energy plans. For example, prepaid plans allow you to pay for your energy usage upfront (rather than after you’ve used it) and don’t require a deposit.

Submit your ZIP code on Choose Energy’s marketplace to find these types of electricity plans in your area.

Duncanville green energy

Texas is paving the way in terms of green energy initiatives in the U.S. The Lone Star State ranks as the top producer of wind energy and comes in second for solar energy generation in the country.

As a result, you have quite a few options if you’re thinking about going green with your energy plan. Every plan in Texas has at least some renewable energy, with some plans being sourced from 100% renewable power. If you want to know how much green energy your plan has in it, check your Electricity Facts Label (EFL). You can sign up with green-only Duncanville electricity providers such as Gexa Energy or Green Mountain energy if you’d like a plan sourced 100% from renewable energy.

Enter your Duncanville ZIP code and filter your results for “green energy” to explore more renewable energy options near you.

Frequently asked questions about Duncanville energy

Who has the cheapest electricity rates in Duncanville?

The average household in Texas paid $168.57 for their electricity in February 2024, according to the latest data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA). The average rate was 14.31 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

When is the best time to shop for a Duncanville energy plan?
