Why is my electricity rate higher than when I signed up?
The rate you see when you sign up is the average rate at that exact amount of usage in one billing cycle.
Some companies try to game the system by applying bill credits between certain usage thresholds. It works great if you are within the margins, but as soon as you leave that band you no longer get that bill credit and your rate per kWh can double. The PUC only requires that companies disclose their average rates at 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. Companies can get around this by giving you a $50 bill credit if you use between 1000 and 2000 kWhs per billing cycle.
The only way to really know what you're getting into is to read your EFL. A 10¢ rate at all usage amounts may end up being cheaper than that 8¢ rate at 1,000 kWh!

Comparing Cheap Bill Credit Electric in IrvingMaxx Saver 12 from 4Change Energy has a low energy charge of 12.45 cents per kWh and no base charge. Once you use 1000 kWh of electricity, you'll receive a bill credit for $90. After you factor this in with the standard TDU charges, the bill credit cuts the average rate for 1000 kWh to a cheap 7.9 cents per kWh.The worst estimated electric rates for this plan would be in April because your usage falls below 1000 kWh. So, the price jumps to 17 cents per kWh for 857 kWh of use. That's an estimated bill of $146. Alternatively, the best month for low electricity rates would be in August at 11.8 cents per kWh. For 1,812 kWh of use, that gives you an estimated bill of $214.Best Value 12 from Frontier Utilities has an energy charge of 10.9 cents per kWh. If you use between 1000 kWh and 1500 kWh, you'll receive the $75 bill credit. Once you add the bill credit and TDU charges, the average rate for 1000 kWh of electricity use is also 7.9 cents per kWh.But note how keeping your usage within the 1000 kWh to 1500 kWh range is key. April is also not the best month on this plan. The average estimated electric rate is 15.5 cents per kWh for 857 kWh of use. That's an estimated bill of $132. And the cheapest estimated rates would also be in August at a slightly lower 15.2 cents per kWh for 1,812 kWh of use (an estimated bill of $276).

That's an estimated bill of $150. However, the best estimated month for low electricity rates is in August. The average rate is around 11.8 cents per kWh for 1,812 kWh of use.
