The state of Texas deregulated its energy market roughly two decades ago. Since then, residents of Kingsville and the rest of the state have had an easier time finding affordable electricity. Currently, Kingsville residents can access electricity rates as low as 7.3 cents per kWh. Some of the most popular providers in the area include TXU Energy, 4Change Energy, and Direct Energy.
While Texas residents can choose their electricity provider, they can’t choose their utility company, which is determined by location. Your local utility company delivers the electricity that powers your home and maintains the electric infrastructure, which includes responding to power outages and downed power lines. AEP Texas Central is the utility company for Kingsville residents.
Types of electricity plans in Kingsville
When you sign up for your next Kingsville electricity plan, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from. Not only can you decide which provider to work with, but you can also choose the type of plan you want. Popular types of plans include:
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate electricity plan is one where you lock in your rate in your contract. Contracts typically range from 12-36 months, and during that time, your electricity rate won’t fluctuate at all.
- Variable-rate plan: Unlike fixed-rate plans, variable-rate electricity plan rates can fluctuate from one month to the next and are based on the current wholesale electricity rate. These plans don’t lock you into a contract, so you can switch providers anytime.
- No-deposit plan: Most electricity companies require that you pay a deposit when you sign up for your plan. One way around that is through a prepaid energy plan, which is a no-deposit plan where you pay upfront for the electricity you expect to use.
