First up, why we like Rhythm Energy.

Rhythm Energy Two Months Free Review

Two Months Free is the plan you’ve heard about from Rhythm Energy. It’s the one on billboards across Texas. And it’s a free electricity plan that’s easy to understand. It’s a 2 year plan. During that 2 years, you will get 2 months of your bills free, 1 per year.

About Rhythm Two Months Free Plan

  • Free electricity and delivery one month per year during the 2-year contract
  • Your free month is based on your November bill and applied in December.
  • The two months free is not included in the average rate calculation. That means your annualized effective rate will be lower than the advertised price.

How much free power is Rhythm Energy Two Months Free? Rhythm bases your free month on your November usage. Most consumers use about 5% of their annual power in November. And if you’re like most Texans, you use 14,112 kWh annually, which means you’ll get around 700 kWh free energy and delivery each year.

Is Rhythm Two Months Free Plan Worth It?

Whether Two Months Free is worth it depends very much on Rhythm’s pricing strategy.

If it’s priced in the same ballpark as their fixed rate 24 month plan, it’s a go. Sign up for Two Months Free and enjoy that free month of electricity every year.

But if it’s priced more than 1/2 a cent higher than their fixed rate plan? Go with their fixed rate.

Here’s why.

The average rate for the Two Months Free plan doesn’t include the free month as part of the calculation.

Sure, they could have done some fancy math to calculate the weighted average reduction in cost on a monthly basis. And then showed some sort of monthly discount in their average rate, to account for the two free months of power. But that’s the kind of thing the Public Utility Commission doesn’t like.

So if Two Months Free is priced the same as their fixed rate plan, sign up, knowing that your average rate will be lower than advertised, once you include the free power.

But if it’s more expensive? That free power for one month won’t make up for paying a higher price for the other 11 months.

Compare this plan to other free electricity plans to make sure it’s the plan for you!

Rhythm Energy Solar Buyback Review

Rhythm Energy offers 2 solar buyback plans, one for the typical home and one for larger rooftop solar systems that are net exporters.

Most rooftop solar systems are designed to produce an amount equivalent to the annual usage. You’ll generate less in the winter and more in the summer, but overall it evens out.

But if you installed a larger system, you’ll consistently generate more power than you use. If you are a net exporter, it means that your home generates more power that it uses on an annual basis.

About Rhythm Solar Buyback Plans

  • Fixed rate for power you sell to the grid.
  • Different rate for power purchased vs. power sold.
  • Texas Solar Buyback is for net exporters. You’ll pay a higher price per kWh for the power you use, but get a higher price for the power you sell to the grid.
  • Solar Buyback Select is for smaller more efficient systems that don’t overproduce. You pay a reasonable price for the power you use, but get a lower price for what you sell to the grid.

Both plans buy your excess power at a fixed rate per kilowatt hour that is lower than the price you pay for kilowatt hours you purchase from them.

What happens if I am a net exporter and choose the wrong plan? Rhythm Energy has two solar buyback plans, Texas Solar Buyback for net exporters and Solar Buyback Select for average size systems. Rhythm monitors the amount of power you sell back to the grid. If you are a net exporter and didn’t buy the right plan, Rhythm can suspend paying you for excess energy. Don’t worry, they’ll alert you and give you the option to switch plans.

Is Rhythm Solar Buyback Worth It?

Rhythm is one of the few electricity providers in Texas that still gives you a fixed rate per kwh to sell power back to the grid.

(Most of the other retailers have decided the market risk of buying and selling solar power isn’t worth it. They only offer to pay you the market price of electricity.)

And we love that they have pick your due date and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

But you should make sure to read the Electricity Facts Label to know what price you will pay per kWh vs. what price you will get per kWh.

And, compare Rhythm solar buyback plans to other solar buyback electricity plans to make sure it’s the best solar buyback plan.
