    Moving to Ft. Worth Texas – How to Set Up Electricity

    Moving to Fort Worth? If so, you may be confused about how to set up electricity for your new home.

    In Fort Worth Texas, electricity is deregulated. You must choose a retail electricity provider for the electricity in your home. The local utility company, Oncor, can not serve as your electricity supplier.

    You can shop for electricity plans just by entering your zip code. Then filter for Basic Fixed Rate Plans. Stay away from free electricity, tiered rate and bill credit plans until you know your electricity usage pattern.

    TIP: If you are moving in to a new home in Ft. Worth, select “move-in” during your enrollment process, then select the date you want to start service.

    If you are moving in to an apartment, your apartment manager may recommend a provider to you. However, we find it’s always better to shop for your own electricity provider. The company your apartment manager recommends is seldom the cheapest electricity in Fort Worth.

    If you are moving homes within the Fort Worth area, you can take your electricity plan with you (transfer of service) or you can shop for a new electricity plan. Your current electricity company can’t charge you an early termination fee if you provide proof of your move. You can get rid of your expensive electricity plan and get a lower electricity rate for your new Ft. Worth home.

    Switch Electricity Providers in Ft. Worth Texas

    Since you are switching electricity providers in Fort Worth, you’ve done this before. You probably are shopping for an electricity plan because your contract expires soon. (Psst. We offer an electricity plan contract reminder service so you don’t forget.)

    It’s always a good idea to shop and compare when your contract expires. Because of course, most providers offer special deals to new customers.

    Follow these tips when you switch electricity providers:

    • Shop based on your usage. Electricity rates are shown based on 500, 1000 or 2000. Instead, shop based on your average electricity usage. Use our electricity bill calculator to see what each rate will cost you.
    • Shop ahead of time. Don’t wait until your contract expires. You can shop up to 60 days ahead of time. Just remember to pick a start date for your new provider.
    • Pick your type of plan. Plan types include bill credit, tiered rates, free electricity and more. But we find that a basic fixed rate plan is best for most homes.
    • Look for the best electricity plan. Your electricity plan is your rate, term, termination fee and type of plan. Take all these into account, rather than just looking at the price.
