How to Find the Best Irving Electricity Plan
When comparing electricity plans in Irving, Texas, there are four crucial factors that you should consider:
1. Your Electricity Usage
For any Irving energy plan, your effective electricity rate will vary based on your power usage each month. It is important to understand your average electricity usage trends and see which months are higher/lower than usual, so you can pick the best plan that fits that usage.
2. The Electricity Rate
Your electricity rate is what you pay per kilowatt-hour for electricity. You can find the rate at three different usage levels for any electricity plan on ElectricityRates.com in the “plan details” section.
3. Plan Type
To save you the most money possible, ElectricityRates.com only offers fixed-rate plans, because variable-rate plans almost always cost you more in the long run. 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.
4. Plan Length
Electricity plans can be as short as 3 months and as long as 5 years. On ElectricityRates.com, the plan length shows how long your rate is locked in. It’s important to note that some plans have cancellation fees. However, if you pick a long term plan, you can save by locking in a low rate for years.
Moving to Irving and Setting Up Electricity
If you’re new to Texas or looking for an electricity plan for a residence 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 Texas.
If you have just moved to your new home in Irving, you probably don’t know about your electricity usage trends. Since this is such an important aspect of choosing your electricity plan, you should use one of the following two methods.
First, you can ask the original owners, your new landlord, or even your neighbors for an idea of how much electricity you will likely be using on average each month. If you’re not able to do this, it’s probably best to pick a short-term energy plan to get an idea of how much electricity you use. After that plan is over, reevaluate and choose a plan that fits your 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.
Irving Power To Choose
When someone talks about “power to choose” in Texas, they are likely referring to one of two things.
First, the power to choose may refer to Texas’s deregulated electricity market. With a deregulated market, consumers have 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.
The reason why many choose ElectricityRates.com over powertochoose.org is because of our simple and straightforward comparison platform. ElectricityRates.com only offers the best rates from leading area suppliers, to make switching as easy as possible.
