In deregulated Texas cities, two types of companies work together to power your home with electricity: utility companies and electricity providers. Your utility is dependent on where you live. The role of your utility company is to deliver energy to your home, monitor and maintain local power infrastructure, and restore power after an outage. In Killeen, the utility is Oncor Electric Delivery.
When it comes to your electric provider, you have the power to decide what company you prefer. Also called retail electricity providers (REPs), these companies generate power and sell it directly to consumers.
Choose from several different Killeen electricity providers to find the one that’s best for you. Some of the biggest REPs in Killeen include 4Change Energy, First Choice Power, Frontier Utilities, and TXU Energy. Currently, Express Energy has the cheapest rates in Killeen, at 6.6 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh).
Types of electricity plans in Killeen
The key to choosing the right energy plan is being aware of your options. Learn more about the plan types available below.
- Fixed-rate plans. If you choose a fixed-rate electricity plan, you’ll enter into a contract with your provider (typically 12-36 months), during which time your rate will not change. This type of plan protects you from rate fluctuations in the market. But if you cancel early, you’ll usually have to pay a fee.
- Variable-rate plans. Variable-rate plans don’t come with a contract. You’re free to cancel or switch providers at any time. However, these month-to-month plans require you to pay the market rate of electricity during your usage period — which could vary based on demand.
- Prepaid and no-deposit plans. If you have a low credit score, your provider may ask you to pay a deposit before your service begins. Or you can avoid those fees by finding a no-deposit plan, such as a prepaid electricity plan. With prepaid plans, you pay for your energy usage in advance and add funds to your account if you run low.
