How to Find the Best Dallas Electricity Plan
When comparing rates from different Dallas-area electricity suppliers, there are a few factors you should consider to find the best plan for your home. Here are some of the most important aspects as you start to shop.
Your Electricity Usage
Dallas electricity rates vary based on your monthly energy usage. Look at your electricity bill to calculate average usage trends and find which months are higher/lower than usual. Then pick a plan that fits that usage.
The Electricity Rate
This is what you pay per kilowatt-hour for electricity. ElectricityRates.com lists the current rates for a plan in the “plan details” section 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. Among ElectricityRates.com’s fixed-rate plans, there are plans with 100% renewable energy, plans that have incentives bundled in with them, and plans that have usage credits based on the amount of residential electricity you use.
Dallas electricity plans can vary anywhere from 3 months to 5 years. For fixed-rate electricity plans, this is the period of time your rate is locked in for.
If you cancel before the end of your contract, there may be a cancellation fee. However, long-term plans can keep you locked in at a low rate for years and save you money.
Moving to Dallas and Setting Up Electricity
If you are looking for a Texas electricity plan for the first time, you should read the guide to Texas electricity. This will give you everything you need to know about how the deregulated electricity market works in the Lone Star State.
As a new Dallas resident, you probably don’t know how much electricity you will use. Since this is an important aspect of picking any Texas electric plan, you have two options.
First, you can try to ask the original owners of the home, your landlord and/or your new neighbors. All three of these people may be able to give you an idea of how much electricity you will use.
However, if this is not an option, you can pick a short-term electricity plan. After this term is over, you can use the electricity trend information to find a longer-term plan that works for your usage.
Dallas Power to Choose
The “power to choose” in Texas often refers to electricity deregulation in the state. Texas began electricity deregulation back in 2002 with the passing of Texas Senate Bill 7. Many cities, including Dallas, have participated and enjoyed the benefits energy choice has brought.
The power to choose may also refer to powertochoose.org, which is the Public Utilities Commission of Texas’s electricity comparison platform. The site features thousands of plans to choose from but this can make enrolling confusing.
ElectricityRates.com strives to make comparing and enrolling with a new electricity provider as easy as possible. This is done by only working with leading providers that offer some of the best energy rates in Texas, and through its straightforward online platform.
