How to Find the Best Arlington Electricity Rates
In order to find the best Arlington electricity plan for you, there are several factors to consider.
The Electricity Rate
Your electricity rate is what you pay per kilowatt-hour for electricity and the first thing to consider when comparing plans. You can find the average rate at various usage levels (500, 1000, 2000 kWh) in the Marketplace by looking at plan details.
Your Electricity Usage
The average price you pay for electricity usually depends on how much you use. It’s best to look over your electricity bills from the last 12 months to find your average monthly electricity usage and find which months are higher or lower than usual. Then, compare plans based on that usage level.
Choose a plan with a low fixed-rate, energy sourced from 100% renewable sources or one that comes bundled with incentives like a smart-home system. Some plans in Texas also come with bill credits that will lower your monthly bill if you reach certain usage levels. These are all factored into the average rate estimate provided in our Marketplace.
Plan lengths vary from 6 months to 3+ years and may come with early termination fees if you move or switch providers prematurely. Longer-term plans often end up saving you more if you’re going to live in the same place for the foreseeable future.
Moving to Arlington and Setting up Electricity
If you’re moving to the Arlington area and this is your first time signing up for electricity, you may find the comprehensive guide to Texas electricity rates and Texas Power to Choose resources helpful.
In addition to the factors listed above, the most important thing to consider when moving to Arlington and ordering electricity service is your home’s average monthly usage. To figure out these energy trends, you can ask your landlord, the previous homeowners or even your new neighbors to get an idea of how much electricity your home will use. If that is not possible, pick a short-term plan and reevaluate after the plan is over.
Apartments and small homes generally use around 500 kWh per month, medium homes use around 1000 kWh and larger homes can use upwards of 2000 kWh per month.
Arlington Power to Choose
In Texas, “power to choose” refers to one of two things. First, it may refer to Texas’s deregulated electricity market, since it gives its residents the “power to choose” their own electricity provider. It may also refer to powertochoose.org, the official electricity shopping platform created by the Public Utilities Commission of Texas. This site features thousands of plans from hundreds of providers which can make finding the best electricity rate difficult for some users.
ElectricityRates.com strives to make comparing and enrolling with electricity providers as easy as possible. In fact, this is why Texas residents often choose ElectricityRates.com over other electricity shopping sites. With ElectricityRates.com, all electricity plans come from leading, top-rated providers that showcase some of the best rates on the market, all through our simple and secure platform.
