Compare Fort Worth electric providers and utility companies

Utility companies and electricity providers play different roles in a deregulated energy market. Electric companies in Fort Worth sell electricity plans and handle your account and billing. Utility companies in Fort Worth are responsible for the transmission and distribution of electricity and maintaining the power grid infrastructure. You cannot choose your utility company as it’s determined by where you live. In Fort Worth, the utility company is Oncor Electric.

Power outages in Fort Worth

Your utility company is responsible for maintaining power lines and restoring electricity when an outage occurs. If your power goes out in Fort Worth, you should contact Oncor Electric — regardless of which electric company you use — to report the outage and receive updates. You can reach Oncor at 1-888-313-4747 or by texting OUT to 66267.

Electricity plan options

Learning about the different types of plans on the Choose Energy marketplace can help you narrow down the best option for you. Enter your ZIP code to find today’s electricity rates in Forth Worth. 

Fixed-rate plans

A fixed-rate energy plan establishes a contract with your electric company and secures your rate, usually for 12, 24, or 36 months. With this plan, your energy rate will remain the same throughout the contract period, regardless of changes in the energy market. A benefit of fixed-rate plans is protection from price spikes during high energy demand. One drawback is that if you cancel your plan before the contract expires, you’ll likely have to pay an early termination fee. These plans are ideal for someone who prefers a predictable monthly bill.

Variable-rate plans

Under a variable-rate plan, your energy rate can fluctuate each month based on the wholesale cost of electricity. You could experience price spikes when energy demand is high but have a lower rate when demand drops. You are not tied to a contract, so you can switch to another plan or provider anytime. These plans are ideal for customers who value flexibility or plan on moving soon.

Prepaid and no-deposit plans

If you have a lower credit score, you may have to pay a deposit when you sign up for your energy plan. You can avoid a deposit by choosing a no-deposit energy plan. A prepaid energy plan is a popular no-deposit plan that allows you to pay for your electricity upfront, and replenish your balance as needed.

Green energy plans

Each electricity plan in Texas includes a percentage of green energy from solar, wind, or other renewable sources. Each plan’s Electricity Facts Label notes the exact amount of renewable content included in the plan. Some electricity companies in Fort Worth also specialize in providing 100% green energy plans. These options are available from Gexa Energy and Green Mountain Energy.

Business energy plans

Business owners can also shop for the best electricity rates in Fort Worth to find an affordable commercial energy plan. Choose Energy can help you tailor an energy plan to suit your business energy needs and secure the best rate.
