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!

How Do I Find Low Electricity Rates in Houston?

Posted on

Who Has Low Electricity Rates?

hopping low rates for the best electricity plans can be frustrating and confusing. Let us help you find the right provider and plan for your home.
It's easy to get confused when shopping Texas electricity plans. Let us help you sort through best low rates so you can find a great electric deal for your home.

If your power bills make you sweat, just wait until August. But before your wallet sweats like it's in a sauna, check out the prices on Texas Electricity Ratings. Despite the shoulder months being over, you can still find cheap low electricity rates for your home. 

Houston, like most of Texas, has a deregulated electricity market which means that you have the power to choose your electric provider. With so many plans available, it can be overwhelming to find the best option for your home or business. But it gets much easier when you search here. So let’s explore the lowest electricity rates in Houston. 

Three Years Of Low Rates

The 36 Inflation Fix plan from Energy Texas boasts a potent combination of low price and long contract. The average rate is 12.1 cents per kWh for a typical bill of $118. You can get the same contract provisions for shorter periods, and you pay a slightly lower price. But the small price jump is worth the peace of mind in having low energy bills for the next three years. Be certain before you sign up for this plan because the early termination fee is $500. 

A Cheap Bill For Two Years

Another strong option for cheap electricity is the Wise Buy 24 plan from Discount Power. Its rate is 11.8 cents per kWh with an average bill of $122. But wait! How can it have a lower rate but a higher bill? This plan charges a base fee of $9.95 each month which is $5 more than Energy Texas. Still, $122 for an average bill is a great deal on a two-year contract. 

Simple Pricing with Low Rates

Here’s another plan where the contract terms mean more than the rate. The Reliant Conservation 24 plan from Reliant Energy has a rate of 13.5 cents and an average bill of $122. Because it has no base charge, all the costs wind up baked into the rate. So this plan gives you the same average bill as Discount Power with more straightforward pricing.  

A Ringing Endorsement

All three plans can be great options for your family. But for this author, the Energy Texas plan takes top prize. In fact, I have this plan for my Texas home, and I could not be more satisfied. So do what I did: shop for low electricity rates in your part of the state.  

How Much Electricity Does My TV Use?

Calculate Your TV Usage Costs

How much electricity does your TV use? Learn how to find out and which ones cost you the most to watch in Dallas.
Does a big TV use more electricity? You may be surprised! Learn how to find out how much energy your set uses and which ones cost you more!

Buying a TV is an investment. But, operating it comes at a cost not many of us are aware of. Knowing how much electricity your TV uses doesn’t just help you budget. You can also learn how to save money on electricity with good TV habits. Find out how much electricity you use with your TV on and off.

TV Types and Their Electricity Usage

Nowadays, it’s hard to find bulky cathode ray tube sets (CRTs) in Texan homes. But even sleeker modern TVs vary. And the type of TV you have greatly influences the average usage you can expect.

LCD: LCD TVs use liquid crystals to control the pixels on your screen. Popular since the late ’90s, they aren’t just thinner than older CRTs. These mountable TV sets also use less electricity. An average 50” LCD TV would use around 150 Watts.

Plasma: Plasma gas conducts electricity. So, the more energy plasma receives, the more light photons get released by the colliding particles in the gas. While the contrast of plasma displays is higher than those of LCDs, these sets are less energy efficient. This is partly the reason why no company manufactures plasma TVs anymore. You can expect an average 50” plasma TV to use 300 Watts.

LED: Just like energy-efficient LED lightbulbs, LED televisions also use less electricity than other types. LED TVs use a transparent LCD panel and backlight it with LED lights. A 50” LED TV set would use, on average, 100 Watts.

OLED: While LED TVs use ten or fewer “lighting zones,” OLED TVs give each individual pixel its own backlight. This can give the images deeper contrast - resulting in higher-quality images. OLED TVs also have lower power consumption, some as low as 85 Watts for a 50” set.

How Much Electricity Does TV on Standby Use?

Your TV uses electricity even when it’s turned off. If your TV is plugged in, standby mode can use up to 5W. While for some, this is too low to care about, it adds up. Along with other energy vampire household devices, this wasted electricity is ultimately wasted money.

How to Calculate Your Usage Cost

Every TV has different power usage depending on size, make, and model. Some older small sets actually use more than newer big sets.

The best way to find out exactly how much your TV costs is to look up your product specifications on the manufacturer’s website. You can find this information with the model number, which you’ll find on a nameplate on the back of your TV.

Electricity Usage on Example TV

If you have a 65” LG OLED A2 PUA, according to the LG website, it consumes 115W when you're watching it. On standby, it uses 0.5W. Watching this TV for 4 hours per day and leaving it on standby for the rest of the time would use 0.47 kWh every day. 

For customers in Dallas on the Come and Take It 12 plan by Energy Texas, their 0.47 kWh daily TV usage costs them 3.08 cents in energy charge. However, this doesn’t take the base charge, delivery charges, and other fees into account. 

Get a Cheaper Electricity Deal

No matter how much electricity your TV uses, the best way to save on electricity is to get a great deal at a low rate. Visit to view the latest plans in your area and choose the best one.
