Texas electricity rates FAQ

Types of energy plans

The two main types of energy plans shown in the Choose Energy marketplace are fixed and variable rate plans.

  • Fixed rate plan. The price you pay for energy is set in your contract and does not change.
  • Variable rate plan. The price you pay is tied to the state’s electricity market and fluctuates accordingly.

Within these types of plan, rate structures varying. For example, one fixed rate plan may suit your needs better than a different fixed rate plan, depending on its structure. For a detailed breakdown of possible plan structure, see our energy buying guide.

Credits checks and no deposit plans

Credit checks are a normal part of the energy buying process that we are required to complete before providers will offer you service. Depending on your credit level, some providers will require deposits. We’ll let you know when you shop if you will need to pay a deposit. There are also a few plans that are available without a credit check or a deposit. For more information, see our deposits page.

Switching electricity providers

Switching providers is not as hard as it may seem. If you have a variable electricity plan, you can switch providers whenever you like. If you have a fixed plan, you may need to pay an early termination fee. To avoid this, just switch up to 14 days before your contract ends. Here’s how switching works:

  1. Enter your ZIP code. We’ll show you rates in your area to compare to your current one.
  2. Choose a plan. Sign up over the phone or online. You’ll get a confirmation email and we’ll take it from there.
  3. Enjoy your new rate. Your new provider will handle the switch. There is no need to cancel with your old provider.

Moving electric service

If you move during your contract term, you will not need to pay an early termination fee. This allows you to stay with your current provider or switch to a new one. Shop for new plans up to 90 days before you move. It is likely your new home has a smart meter, which means your service will be activated remotely, no technician visit needs. To learn more, see our movers page.
