How to Find the Best Abilene Electricity Plan
When comparing electricity plans for the Abilene area, there are a few factors that you should keep in mind.
Your Electricity Usage
For any Abilene electricity plan, your effective electricity rate will vary based on your electricity usage each month. It is important to understand your average electricity usage and see which months are higher/lower than usual, so you can pick a plan that fits that usage.
The Electricity Rate
Your electricity rate is what you pay per kilowatt-hour for electricity. The “plan details” section under a plan on ElectricityRates.com lists your rate at three different usage levels (usually 500 kWh, 1,000 kWh, and 2,000 kWh).
ElectricityRates.com offers fixed-rate electricity plans that almost always save you more than variable-rate electricity plans. You also have your choice of renewable energy plans, plans with incentives bundled in, and plans with usage credits that go towards your total bill at the end of the month.
For fixed-rate plans, the plan length shows how long your rate is locked in. Electricity plans can vary anywhere from 6 months to 3+ years. Many fixed-rate electricity plans come with cancellation fees if you cancel your service before the plan ends. However, long-term plans can keep you locked in at a low rate for years and save you money.
Moving to Abilene and Setting up Electricity
The main problem that many new Texas residents run into when picking an electricity plan is not knowing their home’s electricity usage. To find out and choose a plan based on that usage, you should use one of the following methods.
If you can, the first thing you should do is ask the original owners of the home, your landlord and/or your neighbors. These people should be able to give you an idea of how much average electricity you’re likely to use.
If that’s not possible, a safe bet is to go with a short-term electricity plan. After this period is over, you will have a better idea of how much electricity you use and then pick a new plan that better fits that usage.
Generally, apartments and small homes use around 500 kWh a month, medium-sized homes use around 1,000 kWh and larger homes can use 2,000 kWh a month.
