    How to Find the Best Electricity Plan in Corpus Christi

    With all these electricity choices, it can be confusing to actually sit down and study the variety of options you have. That’s where ElectricityPlans.com comes in.

    You can easily find the electric companies in your area when you shop for electricity by zip code. Then enter your average monthly usage.

    It’s important to shop energy providers based on your usage. There are a lot of tricks and gimmicks like tiered rates and bill credits. But when you shop by your average monthly usage, you can compare apples to apples.

    Pick your usage level or enter your specific usage and we’ll re-sort all the electricity plans to show the ones that are cheapest for you. Plus we’ll estimate your monthly electricity bill based on your usage.

    If you don’t know how much electricity you use, you can assume 1000 kWh per month. That’s the average electricity bill in Corpus Christi.

    When most people shop for the best electricity plan, they are looking for a combination of customer service, value, reputation and price.

    The retail electricity providers on ElectricityPlans all pass the quality test. And we review the fine print on every electricity plan to find the best values for our customers.

    Moving to Corpus Christi – New Electricity Service

    Electricity is deregulated in Corpus Christi. You can’t get your electricity supply from the local utility company.

    To start electricity in your new home, you will need to select an electricity provider. You can see available electricity plans by entering your zip code. Then enter your usage to get estimates of your bill with each option.

    Don’t know your usage? You can estimate it, or use 1000 kWh/month, the average electricity usage for this area.

    Make sure you sign up for a “move-in” when you enroll for your electricity service, and pick the date you want your service to start. That will get the lights turned on in your name.

    We recommend choosing a basic fixed price electricity plan when you first move to your new home. That way you can see your electricity usage. And then for your next contract, consider a free electricity or tiered rate electricity plan.

    After you set up electricity for your home using ElectricityPlans, set up your water and natural gas through the City of Corpus Christi website.

    Switching Electricity Service in Corpus Christi

    One of the big benefits of electricity deregulation is the ability to shop. You don’t have to stay with the provider you’re with at the end of your contract. You can switch.

    More than that, we recommend that you do switch, if you are looking for the best rate.

    Most providers don’t offer their lowest or best rates to renewing customers. In fact, some companies keep their best rates for new customers. That’s why you should shop and compare rates each time your contract expires.

    You can start shopping for your new plan up to 60 days before your contact expires. That’s because most companies allow you to set a future start date up to 60 days in advance.

    To switch to a new electricity provider, choose a “self-selected switch” when enrolling. Then choose to start your new contract when your current contract expires.

    If the new rate is lower? Select a start date that’s 14 days before your current contract expiration. You’ll get the benefit of the lower rate and your current provider can’t charge an early termination fee.

    It’s easy to switch. You don’t need to call your current company to break up. No one needs to come to your house to change anything over. And switching your service takes less than 10 minutes.

    No Deposit Electricity Plans

    If your credit score is below 600, you already know you will need to pay a deposit for electricity. But with prepaid electricity there is no credit check and no deposit.

    Just make a small upfront payment to start service. Then put a credit card on file to refill your account when you run low.

    The best prepaid electricity plan in your area is Payless Power SmarTricity Premier 12, a fixed price prepaid electricity plan with a low rate.

    You’ll be protected from rate increases for a full year, while building your credit history. Sign up now by calling 1-866-934-3451, or shop prepaid plans below.
