Types of rates offered by Ambit Energy

Ambit Energy offers two types of plans: fixed-rate plans and variable-rate. Here’s a breakdown of the different plan types to help you figure out which plan works best for your home or business.

  • Fixed-rate plans: These plans have a set monthly rate for the duration of the contract. They typically last anywhere from 12 to 36 months. You’ll incur an early termination fee (ETF) if you cancel your contract early.
  • Variable-rate plans: These plans have monthly rates that change based on the wholesale price of energy. You can cancel your plan at any time without paying an ETF.

Green energy with Ambit Energy

Every Texas energy plan has some percentage of green energy, and Ambit Energy is no exception. Most Ambit Energy plans offer 7% renewable energy, but its Free & Clear Nights 12 energy plan offers 100% green energy from wind and solar power.

Moving or transferring service with Ambit Energy

You don’t have to pay a cancellation fee if you’re moving out of your current provider’s service area and want to switch providers or transfer to Ambit Energy. Choose Energy can help you find a new electricity provider if Ambit Energy does not offer services near your new address.

Renting with Ambit Energy

Renters can also benefit from using Ambit Energy as their energy provider. Ambit Energy does not have any plans just for renters, but you can choose a variable-rate plan if you are renting on a month-to-month basis. Or, you can select a fixed-rate plan if you intend on staying for 12, 24, or 36 months.

Cancellation fees

Ambit Energy charges cancellation fees if you terminate your fixed-rate plan before the end of the term and aren’t changing addresses. You’ll pay an ETF of $199 for 12-month plans and $299 for 36-month plans.

Tips for best electricity plans

When it comes to finding the best electricity plans near you, Choose Energy can help you discover energy companies in your area — all in one place. 

A few things to remember

Look at your plan closely. Read through the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) for every plan you’re considering before you decide on a plan, keeping the following in mind:

  • The electricity rate per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity
  • How much energy is from renewable sources
  • Any early termination fees that may apply

Sit back for the setup process. After choosing a plan, Ambit Energy will coordinate with your local utility company to set up your new service. This step should be a smooth experience with no interruptions.

Know how to read an electricity bill. When you receive your first bill with your new provider, you’ll see two different charges. One charge is from Ambit Energy based on how much electricity you’ve used, and the other is a delivery charge from your utility company. Keep in mind that your utility company is location-based in a deregulated area. The utility will restore power during an outage — not your electricity provider. 

How shopping for electricity works

In most parts of Texas, you have the power to choose your electric provider for your home or business. But with many choices, this can quickly become a daunting challenge. Fortunately, the Choose Energy marketplace provides free services for shopping and comparing plans.

After entering your ZIP code, you’ll see energy providers and electric plans near you. Depending on what you’re looking for in a plan, you can filter by provider, contract length, plan type, percentage of green energy, and more. When you’ve decided on a plan, we can help you sign up in a matter of minutes.

Tips to lower your electricity bill

The most effective way to lower your energy bills is to decrease how much energy you use in your home or business. You can try switching to energy-efficient appliances and LED bulbs, insulating windows and doors, and cutting down on your energy usage. You can also switch to a cheaper energy plan, if possible.
