How to Find the Best Fort Worth Electricity Plan

There are a few factors to consider when comparing the best Fort Worth electricity plans.

Your Electricity Usage

For any Texas electricity plan, your effective electricity rate changes based on your monthly electricity usage. If you can, look at the trends in your electricity bills over the past 12 months. Find out how much electricity you use on average and which months are higher/lower than usual to get an electricity plan designed for your home usage.

The Local Electricity Rate Itself

ElectricityRates.com lists your rate at three different usage levels in the “plan details” section. Your electricity rate is what you pay per kilowatt-hour for electricity.

The Plan Type

ElectricityRates.com only offers fixed-rate plans (variable-rate plans almost always cost you more). Among those fixed-rate options, you can shop for plans with incentives bundled in, plans with 100% renewable energy, and plans with usage credits that go towards your total energy bill at the end of the month.

The Plan Length

For plans on ElectricityRates.com, the plan length shows how long your rate is locked in. Electricity plans can be as short as 6 months and as long as 5 years.

Moving to Fort Worth, TX and Setting Up Electricity

If you have just moved to the Fort Worth area, ElectricityRates.com suggests you check out the Texas electricity guide to learn all about the Texas electricity market.

As a new Texas homeowner, an issue you may run into when picking an electricity plan is that you simply won’t know your electricity usage. Since it’s important to understand your energy usage trends to find the best electricity plan for you, you have two options.

First, you can ask your landlord, the original owners, or your new neighbors to get an idea of how much electricity your home will use. If this estimate isn’t possible, we recommend that you pick a short electricity plan, then reevaluate down the line.

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.

Fort Worth Power To Choose

In Texas, the “power to choose” can refer to two things. First, it may refer to the deregulated state electricity market, since it gives residents the “power to choose” their own electricity provider.

Second, it may refer to powertochoose.org, which is the Public Utilities Commission of Texas’s electricity shopping platform. The site features thousands of plans to choose from. However, for some, this can get confusing.

Many Texans choose ElectricityRates.com over powertochoose.org because of its simple and straightforward platform. It makes finding the best electricity rate from a reputable local provider effortless.

Fort Worth Electricity Providers

In Texas, there are many providers to choose from. They range from smaller local companies to large national providers like Constellation, Direct Energy, and TriEagle Energy.

To ensure you don’t pick the “wrong” provider, ElectricityRates.com only works with the best of the best. This is done by vetting each provider and plan on the site to guarantee its integrity. With our supplier comparison service, all the guesswork is taken out of it. You just type in your zip code, find the best plan for you, and enroll.

Fort Worth Business Electricity Plans

Your business may be missing out on some big savings if you are not taking full advantage of Fort Worth’s electricity deregulation.

ElectricityRates.com helps you get a plan designed for your business, with customized rates, energy bill optimization, and more. After completing the business electricity quote request form, a savings advisor will work with electricity providers to negotiate the best electricity plan for your company or organization. The best part is that there is no obligation to you!
