How to Find the Best Corpus Christi Electricity Plan
There are four main factors to consider when comparing Corpus Christi electricity plans.
1. Your Electricity Usage
For any Corpus Christi electricity plan, your effective rate will vary based on your power usage each month. It is important to understand your average electricity usage trends, including which months are higher or lower than usual, so you can pick a plan that best fits that usage.
2. Your Electricity Rate
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). Your electricity rate is what you pay per kilowatt-hour for electricity.
3. Plan Type
ElectricityRates.com offers fixed-rate electricity plans that almost always save you more than variable-rate electricity plans. Among those fixed-rate plans, you can get plans with usage credits, plans with 100% renewable energy and plans bundled with other incentives like smart home systems.
4. Plan Length
For fixed-rate energy plans, the plan length shows how long your rate is locked in. The average electricity plans in Corpus Christi can vary anywhere from 3 months to 5 years.
Moving to Corpus Christi and Setting up Electricity
If you are moving to Corpus Christi, you should check out this comprehensive guide to Texas electricity. It will help you learn everything you need to know to find the right Texas energy plan for you.
When you move into a new home, you probably have no idea how much electricity you will consume. Since knowing your electricity usage is so important when selecting an electricity plan, you should get an idea of your usage in one of two ways.
First, you can ask someone who would know. This may be your landlord, your neighbors, or even the original owners of the property. If this is not possible, you can pick a short-term fixed-rate electricity plan. After the plan is over, you can reevaluate and pick a plan that works for your electricity usage.
Generally, apartments and small homes in Texas use around 500 kWh a month, medium-sized homes use around 1,000 kWh and larger homes can use 2,000 kWh a month.
Corpus Christi Power to Choose
The “power to choose” in Texas often refers to electricity deregulation. Back in 2002, Texas deregulated its electricity market by passing Texas Senate Bill 7. After, many residents had the “power to choose” their own electricity provider, instead of relying on their local utility.
However, “power to choose” may also refer to powertochoose.org. This is the state’s electricity comparison platform. The site features thousands of plans and hundreds of providers to choose from, but this can make enrolling confusing.
In fact, this is the main reason why many choose to use ElectricityRates.com over powertochoose.org. When you use ElectricityRates.com, you compare leading providers nearest to you, and only look through the best electricity plans from the highest-rated energy suppliers. Combined with its simple and straightforward platform, finding the right electricity plan for you becomes effortless.
Corpus Christi Electricity Providers
To make sure you don’t pick the “wrong” provider, ElectricityRates.com only works with the best of the best. This is ensured by vetting each provider and plan on the site to guarantee its integrity. With ElectricityRates.com, there’s no guesswork. Just type in your zip code, find the best plan near you, and begin enrollment.
Corpus Christi Business Electricity Rates
If you own a business in Corpus Christi, ElectricityRates.com can help you save on your electricity bill as well. After filling out a business electricity quote request form, an ElectricityRates.com energy advisor will get in contact with you. From there, they will negotiate with providers to get an electricity plan designed for your business. This could include customized rates, energy bill optimization, and more.
The best part? There’s no obligation to you.
