How to Find the Best Electric Rate in Richmond
We created ElectricityPlans in 2017 because it’s just too darn hard to shop for an electricity plan! All the complicated electricity rates make it hard to shop for a power provider.
The best way to shop? Compare power plans based on your electricity usage and shop online with our free tools. That’s how to quickly find the best electricity plan for your home.
Time needed: 10 minutes.
How to find the best electricity rates in Richmond
- Search electricity rates by zip code.
- Enter your monthly usage.
This is the most important step! Pick from 500, 1000 or 2000 kWh based on small, medium or large home. OR, enter your own average monthly usage.
- Pick any specific plan features.
You can pick from a variety of electricity rates and plans, from basic fixed rate electricity, free electricity at certain times or bill credit electricity plans. We recommend basic fixed rate plans for most of our customers as the best value.
- Sort results by “Price: Low to High.”
- Pick the cheapest electricity rate.
Using your zip code and average monthly usage, we’ll calculate the average price and monthly bill for each rate.
An electricity plan is more than just a rate. Make sure to also factor in the term length, and any early termination fee. Shopping by price usually makes sure you get the best deal.
Always read the electricity facts label before you commit. You can view that info right on our website.
You can also see the full calculation of each plan under Plan Details.
And if there’s any fine print like bill credits and usage levels, we highlight that in the Plan Description.

Moving to Richmond Texas – Set Up Utilities
Add it to your to-do list. When you move, electricity is just one of the utilities you need to set up.
If you are moving within Richmond TX or moving from another suburb of Houston, you can transfer your current electricity service to your new home. Just contact your provider by phone or website.
Before you do transfer service, make sure to check current prices. Because “moving” is a valid reason to cancel your current electricity contract with no termination penalty. Just notify your provider you’re moving, provide a forwarding address and cancel. Then pick a cheaper plan.
If you are moving to Richmond from out of the area, you’ll need to select an electricity provider. Follow the steps outlined above to enter your zip code and compare rates.
If you’re moving to a new home, it’s hard to shop for an electricity plan based on usage. That’s why we recommend picking a basic fixed rate electricity plan for your first contract. These have no usage requirements or penalties for using too much or too little.
When you shop, just know that the average electricity bill for a typical Texas home is 1200 kWh a month, for a house around 2,000 square feet. You can use that to guesstimate your usage.
During enrollment, select that you are moving in to a new home, called a “move-in” and pick the date you want service.
And if you forget to set up service? You can get same day electricity in Richmond TX.
Switching Electricity Providers
After all our years in the energy business, two things are consistent.
First, most electricity companies give their best rates to new customers. Second, the highest rate you’ll pay for your Richmond TX electric bill is when you forget to shop for power.
Don’t forget to shop! If you are off contract, you’ll be paying month to month electricity rates. Those are always the highest prices around.
Shop for an electricity provider every time your contract expires. While it’s not always convenient to switch electricity providers, this approach will give you the best rates.
Switching is easy to do and takes less than 10 minutes to complete your enrollment. There’s no need to contact your old provider. Your new energy company takes care of everything!

Electricity for Apartments in Richmond TX
When you’re renting a new place, there are a lot of upfront costs. Not only do you have the cost of your move, but you have a lot of deposits — for your place, pet deposit, water, gas, power.
Most electricity providers will run a credit check before you get electricity service. And if you have credit below a 600 score, you’ll have to pay a deposit.
To avoid a deposit, you can shop for a prepaid electricity plan. It’s under $100 to get your lights turned on.
Many apartment management companies have side deals with electricity providers. They may give you information that includes the name of their recommended provider. We guarantee it will come with a high price for your electricity bill! Instead, it’s best to shop online and compare rates from multiple companies.
