How to Find the Best Electric Company and Best Energy Rates Dallas
For most Dallas residents, finding the cheapest or best electricity plan depends on two things:
- The desired contract length
- Your monthly kWh usage.
Once you know those two figures? Then you’ll be able to find the electric rate that gives you the best rate.
How Does Contract Length Impact Electricity Rates?
Contracts range from month to month variable rate products to long-term fixed rate contracts.
Sometimes short term contracts are the cheaper electricity option. Other times, a long term contract gives the best price. Pricing depends on the wholesale markets when you are shopping.
No single contract type or length fits every person’s lifestyle and budget. Because of that, there are a lot of choices. Selecting the best type and length of contract for you depends on several factors, which we go into below.
Is a Long Term or Short Term Plan Better?
If you moved into your home in the summer, you’ll likely find yourself renewing your electricity plan every summer. Summer (especially August) is the time of year when power prices are highest. It might be worth the expense to sign up for a short term plan or a month to month rate. And then you can commit to a longer term electricity plan when rates are cheaper in the spring or fall.
And if you’re only going to be living in your current home or apartment for a short period of time, you may want to consider a 12 month plan.
But always consider a longer term contract to see if it’s a better deal. All energy providers purchase electricity on the wholesale market. Sometimes power prices are projected to drop in the future. If that’s the case, a long term electricity plan may be your cheapest one.
FAQ: What if I move during my contract term? No worries. f you move during the term of your contract, you have two options. You can take your plan with you to your new home (if it’s in the same utility ares). Or you can cancel your contract with no penalty. According to the rules of the Texas Public Utility Commission, your provider cannot charge you a cancellation fee if you provide proof of a change of address.
How Does Average Monthly Electricity Usage Impact my Rate?
If you’re searching for cheap electric plans in your area you’ll probably notice that providers offer three different rates for each plan. These rates represent the average rate you would pay for 500, 1,000 or 2,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month. But the average home in Texas uses 1,200 kWh a month. So those average prices may not even apply to you.
That’s why the best way to shop is to use your monthly kWh usage. First, check your recent electric bills to find your average usage. Then use our Electricity Bill Calculator from the advanced search.
We’ll automatically calculate rates based on your usage. You can view the average price for each electricity plan based on your home. And we’ll show you the estimated monthly bill for each plan.
Best Apartment Electricity Plans in Dallas
If you are moving into a new apartment, you may be looking for a short term electricity plan. Just know that if you move during your contract, your early termination fee is waived. So you should shop for the cheapest electricity plan for your apartment.
