How to find the cheapest electricity in Texas

Start by determining a reasonable price range. Then, ask yourself what other factors are important. Do you want a long-term contract or a month-to-month option? What is your average usage level, and how much are you willing to spend on your monthly energy bill? Are you interested in reducing your carbon footprint with a renewable energy option?

Remember, some of the best power deals don’t seem significant once you factor in usage. Because of the tiered usage prices offered by most providers, using 2,000 kWh per month can be more costly on a low-rate plan if you go above that usage level. 

Some providers charge a hidden usage fee if you don’t meet the energy consumption level for that plan. Be sure to read each plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to fully understand the plan you’re considering before you sign up.

How are electricity rates calculated?

Calculating your monthly energy rates can appear complicated at first. To estimate your monthly cost, use this simple formula:

Monthly Usage (kWh) x Electric Rates ($/kWh) = Approximate Monthly Cost

For example, suppose your household uses an average of 1,200 kilowatt-hours (kWh) each month, and your electric rate is 9.8 cents per kWh ($0.098/kWh). Your estimated monthly cost will be $117.60, plus or minus any usage discounts or upcharges. Be sure to factor in your utility company’s monthly delivery charges and fees for failing to meet a tiered threshold.

The bottom line is that hidden fees and requirements can make what seems like a good energy deal turn bad. Sometimes, the best electricity deals are not the cheapest initial rate. If you’re in a time crunch and need to start saving money fast, the best way to do so is by taking steps to reduce your electricity usage.
