Texas Electricity – Choice in the Lone Star State!

Everyone wants the best Texas electricity rate they can get.  Sometimes, when you go with the “cheapest electricity,” the results can be shocking…

Texas Electricity – Sometimes Cheaper Isn’t Better

texas electricityTexas electricity – it seems like everyone wants a lower bill.  Indeed, everyone in the entire country prefers lower electricity rates.  Who can blame them?  The good news is that Texans have the power to choose when picking their Texas electricity provider.

Electricity is a commodity that everyone uses and pays for.  It only makes sense to want the cheapest electricity rate possible.  I think most people throughout the country would appreciate a lower electricity bill – I do.  But sometimes, believe it or not, “cheaper” is not always “better.”

I assume you’re looking for the cheapest Texas electricity rates.  I switched my energy supplier in 2016 and enjoyed a 40% reduction in my electricity bill.  I’d like to help you enjoy a similar reduction in your Texas electricity bill if possible.

Various websites allow you to compare Texas electricity rates by supplier.  You can visit the Public Utility Commission of Texas’ website and identify electrical energy supply companies licensed in the state.

Before you jump on the cheapest Texas electricity rate out there, know this – all that glitters is not gold.

Texas Electricity – A Brief History of Electrical Energy Supply & Deregulation

texas electricityIn the mid-1990’s, commercial electricity generators (commercial utilities) were deregulated across the country.  Purdue University has a good presentation on the history of electrical energy deregulation here – Electric Utilities, Deregulation and Restructuring of U.S. and Restructuring of U.S. Electricity Markets.

Electrical utilities previously held a monopoly in the industry.  Electricity generators could decide to build power plants whenever they wanted.  They were then able to request a rate increase to cover the cost.  Whether the project came in on time or on budget was irrelevant.  Whatever the cost, the utility was able to transfer that cost to consumers via a rate increase.  If you lived or had a business in the utility’s service area you were stuck.  You paid whatever electricity rate the utility charged and had little say in the matter.

In the mid-1990’s, energy generators (electricity and natural gas) were deregulated.  Electrical utilities had to put their electricity up for bid in public auctions.  Now, supply and demand dictate the cost of electricity.

Additionally, deregulation also opened up new opportunities for independent electrical energy suppliers.  Electrical energy service providers started to pop up all over the country.  These organizations were able to purchase electricity at market rates and then sell it to consumers for profit.

Currently, approximately 20 states have fully implemented competitive electrical utility markets.  These states allow consumers a variety of choices and options when it comes to selecting an electrical energy supplier.

Texas is one of the states that have implemented utility deregulation.  Texans have access to the benefits that market competition provides.

Residential consumers and business owners have options when it comes to finding competitive Texas electricity rates.  My goal is to help you find competitive electricity rates in Texas.

Texas Electricity – Your Electric Bill Won’t Change

texas electricityIf you choose another electrical energy supplier, you will get the same Texas electricity bill.  Generally, only one or two lines on your Texas electricity bill will change.  Your electrical energy supplier and your new rate per kilowatt/hour (kWh) will be displayed.  Otherwise, it’s the same bill and nothing else changes.

There is one important thing you need to understand.  Only your Texas electricity supply will reflect your new Texas electricity rate.  You must still pay the transmission and distribution (T&D) charges and fees for your local area.  Your new electrical energy service provider will not change those fees.

Texas Electricity – Cost Affects Rates

texas electricityAll electrical energy providers have to purchase their electricity at market pricing.  Their goal is to sell the electricity for profit.  None of these companies are in business to lose money.  If the electricity rate is too low, there is no way for the organization to profit.  An electrical energy provider cannot offer a rate that is less than their cost.

There are many aspects that go into determining an electricity rate.  Generation costs are one factor.  The cost of electricity generation is dependent upon how the electricity is generated.  Whether generated by nuclear, fossil, wind, solar, or other – it all plays a part in determining the cost.

Electricity rates are also dependent upon population density.  The higher the population in an area, the more demand is generated.  Supply and demand impacts rates.  The higher the population, the more cost to support gird infrastructure.  The time of year the electricity is purchased, as well as ongoing weather conditions, impact cost.

All of these things and more go into determining Texas electricity rates.  The “take away” is that the cost of Texas electricity can vary and change for any number of reasons throughout the year.  The lowest electricity rate a, electrical energy provider can offer is limited by their cost.

Texas Electricity – Use Caution When Choosing a Provider

texas electricityYou should know that no electrical energy provider could promise you the lowest or cheapest Texas electricity rates.  Many do; however, you need to read the fine print associated with their offer.  There may be hidden fees and charges.  The service term may be limited, after which, the rates increase.

If any provider’s Texas electricity rate is especially low, how do they gain profit?  This should be a red flag for you to evaluate the provider before acquiring the service.  As the old saying goes, “If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.”  Use caution when choosing your Texas electricity provider.  I am hoping this is where I can be of assistance.

Texas Electricity – Switching Electrical Energy Suppliers

texas electricitySwitching to a new electrical energy service provider is easy.  You do it yourself, from the comfort of your own home.  You need to have a copy of your current Texas electricity bill handy.  You simply go to the associated website, pick your plan, fill out the application, confirm your order, and you’re done.

There is no gap in your Texas electricity service when you switch suppliers, and you won’t get a new bill.  Your electrical service will continue as it always has.  The only difference will be one line on your bill that identifies your new Texas electricity rate.

Approximately 15% of the municipalities in Texas own their own electrical co-op or similar electricity service.  One example is the city of San Antonio.  If you live in a city where the municipality owns the service provider, you will not be able to change providers.

Texas Electricity – Some Personal Experiences

texas electricitySome people have concerns and/or misgivings related to switching to a new electrical energy supplier.  There are cases where suppliers have mistreated unsuspecting consumers.  I understand, because I’ve had that same experience myself.

I’ve heard a few horror stories, and I’ve got a few of my own.

I first switched over my service to a new electrical energy supplier in 2008.  I won’t name the company, because that would be unprofessional.  But they came to my door, direct-selling their electrical energy service, promising me a discounted electricity rate.  I didn’t search for any other providers.  They had a good electricity rate and I elected to use them as my electrical energy supplier.

I paid little attention to my electricity bill, but I did notice it was going up over time.  I really didn’t think about it and just assumed it was market forces driving up the electricity rates.

Now fast forward to 2016.  I went to change electrical energy suppliers, and found I was paying over 11.0 cents per kWh.  The company had been bumping up my rate slowly over time.

I wasn’t paying attention, and I was being significantly overcharged.  When I switched to my current electrical energy supplier, I saved over 40% on my electricity rate.

Texas Electricity Rates – Will I save Money?

texas electricityI hope you save a lot of money.  But I can’t promise the same savings for everyone.  I can’t promise that my organization will have the cheapest Texas electricity rates.

Here’s what I know from personal experience.  In every case where I’ve investigated another electrical energy supplier, we meet or beat their rates.  There was generally an underlying service charge or fee when other electrical energy suppliers had lower rates.

I want your business, but to be fair, I haven’t evaluated every independent electrical energy supplier on the market.  That would be a significant commitment in time and effort considering the number of electrical energy suppliers out there.

I can’t promise you the cheapest Texas electricity rates.  I CAN promise that we’ll be competitive, fair, and reliable.  I CAN guarantee that I will personally take care of your account.  Being a native Texan myself, my word is still my bond.

One other issue people have is that their electricity rate increases over time without their knowledge.  They assume the electrical energy supplier is trying to gouge them in the pricing.  In some limited cases, such as in my previously described experience, that is definitely the fact.

I’ve discovered that some people don’t understand what happens to their Texas electricity rates over time.  I’m going to explain the process to you because to be forewarned is forearmed.

Texas Electricity – Variable Rate v. Fixed Rate Plans

texas electricityWhenever you initiate a Texas electricity service plan, there is a time duration associated with your account.  You “lock in” a fixed Texas electricity rate for a period of time.  Your plan may last anywhere from 4 months to 3 years.

At the end of your term, your account transfers to a variable rate plan.  It’s automatic – you will go from a fixed rate to a variable rate plan unless you intervene in advance.  Your Texas electricity rates will change routinely on a variable rate plan.  The rate changes month to month based upon market dynamics, like supply and demand.  In the winter, you may get a really low Texas electricity rate.  In the summer, if it’s hot, you may be paying a very high Texas electricity rate.

The most likely reason for the higher electricity rate is not that the electrical energy supplier trying to gouge you.  It’s more likely that your term ended and your account transferred over to a variable rate plan.

It’s easy to transfer your Texas electricity rate plan back to a fixed rate account.  Just go to your electrical energy supplier’s website, typically where you pay your electricity bill online.  They should provide you with the option to select a new Texas electricity rate plan.  If not, call your electrical energy supplier and tell them you want to switch to a fixed rate plan.

You can plan to protect your Texas electricity rate in advance.  Set a calendar reminder on your phone or computer to alert you 1 month before your plan ends.

If you choose to use our provider, we’ll email you a month before your term ends.  You will not be subject to any “unknown” rate increases.  We will help you protect your Texas electricity rates.

Texas Electricity – Which Plan Do I Choose?

texas electricitySo which electricity rate plan is the best plan?  Which plan will give me the best electricity rates?

Honestly, it’s really up to your own personal preference.  Do you want a plan that lasts only 6 months?  Do you want to lock in a Texas electricity rate for 3 years?

I like the fixed rate plan, because I want to know the rate is going to remain the same for my term.

Others love the variable rate plans.  They believe they get the best Texas electricity rates when the price is low.  They also believe the cost “averages out” across the year.

It really just depends upon your personality and how you like to plan the use of your money.

For the most cost-effective Texas electricity rates, check out our Residential Service Plans or our Business Service Plans.

When you choose your electrical energy service provider, ask yourself a question.  Do you want to go with a company with no face, where you’re just another account number?  Or would you prefer to do with someone who knows your name and keeps your best interest at heart?  If you want an organization that treats you like a real person, go with DTS Global, Ltd.

Texas Electricity – Can I get Free Electricity?

texas electricityCan you get free electricity?

The answer to that is “Yes” and “No.”

The truth is that nothing is really free, and that includes electricity.  With that said, however, it is possible to get your Texas electricity bill down to $0.00.  Please remember this does not include any charges you pay for T&D.  That charge – whatever it is – will remain the same.  With my organization, however, you can get your Texas electricity rate down to $0.00.

If you refer 10 electricity customers who use our service, your Texas electricity bill will go to $0.00.  It’s that simple.  Do you know 10 families who use electricity?  Do you think they would like to get their Texas electricity bill down to $0.00?  Is there really even a question?

Select one of our cost-effective Texas electricity Residential Service Plans or our Business Service Plans.  Refer 10 (or more) additional consumers (friends, family, business, etc.) to our website.  They will have to enter your name as the referrer.

Once 10 of your referrals sign up for service, your Texas electricity bill (electricity supply) will be refunded.  This will continue every month as long as your referrals remain a customer.  You will have “free electricity” month after month.

Getting paid 10% on all the Texas electricity customers you referred may also be something you want to consider.  You can get paid up to 10% on every referral that uses your service if you are an independent business owner.

Texas Electricity – Can I save 10% on my bill?

texas electricityYou can get a 10% monthly refund on your Texas electricity bill.

This scenario would apply if you started your own home business, like I did.

I am a big fan of work from home business opportunities.  I am especially fond of making money online – you can read more about the benefits here.  But there are a number of benefits associated with this specific online business. You can get up to 10% of your Texas electricity bill refunded back to you every month.

Personally, this was an easy choice – no one had to sell me on anything.  I use electricity every day.  I’m going to be paying an electricity bill for the rest of my life.  If I can get a 10% commission on my own electricity bill, why shouldn’t I?

Saving 10% on your Texas electricity bill can mean significant savings over time.  If you only save $50.00 a month, that’s $600.00 per year, or $12,000.00 across 20 years.  Some people have chosen to start their own business based on this benefit alone.

You can also make up to 10% on every customer who uses your service.  You start your own home business.  You choose your new Texas electricity plan.  You refer 10 or more customers to your business because they want free electricity, too.  You get your Texas electricity bill down to $0.00.  You make a 10% monthly commission for each one of your referrals as long as they remain your customer.  It sounds like a good deal to me, and it’s realistic and feasible.
