Shopping for Residential Electricity Rates in Texas

June 22, 2016

Looking for the lowest electricity rates in Texas? The trick to finding cheap electricity is to shop around. Every provider offers different plans with different contract lengths, rates, and energy content. As a result, the consumer has the ability to find one that is cheaper than all the rest while still being able to meet their needs.

Shopping for Electricity

You could spend hours searching through different websites, entering your zip code over and over, and looking at every single plan over a multitude of tabs in your browser. And once you find a few plans you like, you have to remember which tabs you found them on then check the EFL to make sure you’re getting a good deal. Sounds like a lot of work, doesn’t it?Shopping for Residential Electricity Rates in Texas

That’s where we brokers come in. A broker, like Shop Texas Electricity, can gather up all the plans available in your area and consolidate them into one easy to read list. Instead of hopping around the internet, you can look at plans and compare them side by side quickly and easily. Even better: you can sort the list to make it easier to find what you need.

Looking for a long term contract? Sort by term. Want the lowest residential electricity rates in Texas? Sort by price. Prefer one provider over others? Sort by provider or plan name. The choice is yours, and you have total control over who you buy your electricity from.

Low Rates, Hidden Charges, and Electricity Reliability

The old saying “you get what you pay for” often steers customers away from too good to be true deals. At first glance, some rates may seem really attractive, but when you look at the EFL, you might find that they really are too good to be true. Some energy companies like to add an attractive rate for “middle ground” energy use, usually around 500 to 1000 kWh. Anything above or below this zone can be significantly more expensive.

However, if you find a cheap rate and the EFL backs it up, it can still be a legitimately good deal. Don’t feel like paying for a cheaper residential electricity rate means you’ll get poor electricity service. All service is overseen by the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas, and they make sure that all electrical energy is treated fairly. So if you find that too good to be true rate with no strings attached, go for it!
