Why is my electricity rate higher than when I signed up?

The rate you see when you sign up is the average rate at that exact amount of usage in one billing cycle.

Some companies try to game the system by applying bill credits between certain usage thresholds. It works great if you are within the margins, but as soon as you leave that band you no longer get that bill credit and your rate per kWh can double. The PUC only requires that companies disclose their average rates at 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. Companies can get around this by giving you a $50 bill credit if you use between 1000 and 2000 kWhs per billing cycle.

The only way to really know what you're getting into is to read your EFL. A 10¢ rate at all usage amounts may end up being cheaper than that 8¢ rate at 1,000 kWh!

Best Fixed Rate Plan - If You Need to Cancel Your Contract

Posted on

Can You Afford to Leave An Electricity Contract?

If you walk away from your retail electric provider plan early, you may pay a high fee. But rates change and prices may fall soon. Find out what plans could save you money to leave.
Often, the problem with saving money is in the small print. Find out what plans charge the lowest fees and you could save money when you walk away from them when rates fall.

Breaking a contract can have some stiff penalties. If you break an apartment lease, you may still owe the landlord all the rent. When you stop paying a car note, the repo man comes looking for your vehicle. Sure, you can sign up for a new Texas electricity plan before your current retail electric provider contract ends. But when you walk away from your current electricity contract, you usually pay a stiff early termination fee.

If you cough up the cash for the fee, you can walk away without any other obligations. But why would you do this? The most common reason is you can get a much lower rate with a new plan. Of course, you want to make sure your future savings offset that early termination fee. 

SO -- if you're shopping for a new plan right now, guess what...

Natural gas prices look likely to come down in April 2023. We don't know for sure, but if this happens, electricity rates could fall as well. April is a “shoulder month” when prices tend to fall anyway. So, it will probably be time to shop for a new plan. So if you're shopping plans right now, check out these 12-month electricity plans that might be easiest to can walk away from later. 

A Low Early Termination Fee

The Simply Bright 12 plan from Rhythm offers an advertised rate of 19.0 cents per kWh and an average bill of $173. The plan’s pricing structure is very simple because there are no bill credits or tiered rates. Your bill rises in proportion to your usage. This plan is a great option if you want to bail on it down the road because the early termination fee is $10 for each month remaining on the contract. So if you sign up for the plan this month and end your contract early in April 2023, your early termination fee is only $50. 

More Plan Choices 

There’s a big jump in early termination fee with this next plan. The Champ Saver-12 plan from Champion Energy Services assesses an early termination fee of $150. The plan’s average rate is 19.0 cents, and the average bill is $172. If you’re fairly certain you’re going to jump ship, you’re likely better off with the Rhythm or Constellation plan. Of course, there's other plans out there (some with lower rates) but they offer longer contracts and larger early termination fees. 

Keep Your Options Open

You may be more inclined to select a plan and stick with it. If that’s the case, https://www.texaselectricityratings.com is still the best place to shop for Texas electricity plans. No matter your intentions, check back often to assess your residential power plan options.

Houston Provider of the Month for June: Constellation

Which Houston Constellation Plans Are Best?

Explore these great Houston Constellation electricity plans to find the best one for your lifestyle.
Houston electricity prices are rising with the summer temperatures. Check out these plans by Constellation, our Provider of the Month for June and save!

Like a cluster of stars in the sky, Houston electricity retail provider Constellation has an array of plans for residential customers. And like a star, each plan has its own distinct features. However, most of this supplier’s current plans use bill credits or tiered rates in their pricing. These features can make it challenging to predict your home’s monthly power bill. Therefore, we’ll examine a few of the best priced Constellation plans for you to find one that works for you.  

Tiered Power For Consistent Consumers

Some Houston electricity providers have stopped accepting new customers because they can’t afford to offer competitive rates.  But, Constellation's best priced plan, the 12 Month Flat Tier Product, boasts a very competitive 15.0 cents per kWh rate. The plan's first price tier runs from $150 for 1 kWh to 1,000 kWh. The next costs an additional $150 for 1,001 kWh to 2,000 kWh. Finally, the price is 17.9 cents per kWh after that. Therefore, this plan works best for households that consistently use just a few kWh below the amount that kicks them up to the next tier. So if your bill consistently hovers around 950 kWh or 1,950 kWh, this could be just the plan for you. However, low usage customers should consider other plans. 

HVAC Protection And Bill Credits

The next cheapest plan is the 36 Month A/C Protect Premier for 2 Units plan. This plan’s average price is 15.9 cents per kWh. For three years, customers gain some added protection for their HVAC systems. And given the above-average heat lately in Texas summers, this could come in real handy. The plan’s pricing offers two bill credits: $35 at 1,000 kWh and $15 at 2,000 kWh. So make sure your usage is just above one of these thresholds to maximize this plan's pricing.

More Bill Credits and PowerPlug 

If you thought the first two plans had long names, this one is a doozy: 15 Month Usage Bill Credit + PowerPlug. Like the name’s word count, the average rate takes a bit of a jump here, too. The plan’s average price is 17.4 cents per kWh. This plan gives customers an added bonus in the form of a PowerPlug. This handy device makes any appliance a smart device. Additionally, you can monitor the appliance’s usage from the Constellation Connect app. The pricing offers the same bill credits as the previous plan: $35 at 1,000 kWh and $15 at 2,000 kWh. As before, align your usage with these targets to take full advantage of this plan.

Houston Constellation Plans and More 

For some Houston customers, Constellation plans are great, but they may not be exactly right for your situation. Fortunately, you can find many more plans at https://www.texaselectricityratings.com/electricity-rates. Pick one that works for you, and rest easy with your power bill.
