Texas energy plan FAQs
- What happens if I move? You have options. If your provider offers service at your new address, you can simply move service. You also can end a contract with no early termination fee if you provide proof of your new address.
- What is a fixed-rate plan? If you’re someone who likes to budget, then you might want to consider a fixed-rate electricity plan over a variable-rate plan. A fixed-rate plan gives you the option to lock-in your rates, which won’t change regardless of whether or not the cost of energy changes. The only variables are usage and any legal or regulatory changes.
- What is a variable-rate plan? The other type of plan you can get is a variable-rate plan, which is essentially the opposite of a fixed-rate plan. This plan will have energy costs which will fluctuate based on the market. A variable plan is ideal for people who want more flexibility with their contract. There are many different types of plans worth knowing about, such as a prepaid plan.
- Why does Choose Energy run a credit check? Most providers run a credit check before beginning your service. This helps them determine whether or not you’ll have to put a deposit down or not. Choose Energy runs a soft check that won’t hurt your credit score.
- Who do I call if there’s an outage? Due to your power to choose, you are not locked into one provider when it comes to choosing your plans. But, that’s not necessarily who you contact in the case of our power outage. Utility companies, also known as TDU (local transmission and distribution utility) are in charge of power infrastructure, lines, poles, and meters and they are the ones you call in case of an emergency. If you experience a power outage with Champion Energy, report it to your utility company in your service area.
A few things to remember
Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
- Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
- % renewable energy sourcing
- Early termination fees
Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.
