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 chosen based on where you live, meaning that 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 provider 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. Right now, Express Energy has the lowest rate in Duncanville at 6.7 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh).
Types of electricity plans in Duncanville
Electricity providers offer different types of energy plans to suit different needs. Here’s an overview of some of the most popular plan types.
- 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, but they also come with an early termination fee (ETF) if you cancel your plan before it’s up.
- Variable-rate plans. With a variable-rate plan, there are no contracts required, which you might prefer. But on the downside, your rate isn’t locked in, which means that your electric bill could fluctuate quite a bit each month.
- Prepaid & no-deposit plans. Typically, electricity providers will ask you to pay a deposit if you don’t have a strong credit history. If you can’t cover the cost of 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.

Duncanville electric rates in my area
If you’re shopping for an energy plan for the first time, your initial thought might be to visit Google and search for something like “electricity rates in my area” or “best electric company near me.” However, it’s much more effective to use a marketplace like Choose Energy to find accurate pricing for your local area.
Here’s why: It’s common for REPs to offer different electricity rates in different parts of the state – even under the same plan. That’s a result of utility companies having their own set of transmission charges, which leads to a variance in rates. You can view up-to-date rates in your area by submitting your ZIP above.
