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!

Houston Provider of the Month for June: Constellation

Which Houston Constellation Plans Are Best?

Explore these great Houston Constellation electricity plans to find the best one for your lifestyle.
Houston electricity prices are rising with the summer temperatures. Check out these plans by Constellation, our Provider of the Month for June and save!

Like a cluster of stars in the sky, Houston electricity retail provider Constellation has an array of plans for residential customers. And like a star, each plan has its own distinct features. However, most of this supplier’s current plans use bill credits or tiered rates in their pricing. These features can make it challenging to predict your home’s monthly power bill. Therefore, we’ll examine a few of the best priced Constellation plans for you to find one that works for you.  

Tiered Power For Consistent Consumers

Some Houston electricity providers have stopped accepting new customers because they can’t afford to offer competitive rates.  But, Constellation's best priced plan, the 12 Month Flat Tier Product, boasts a very competitive 15.0 cents per kWh rate. The plan's first price tier runs from $150 for 1 kWh to 1,000 kWh. The next costs an additional $150 for 1,001 kWh to 2,000 kWh. Finally, the price is 17.9 cents per kWh after that. Therefore, this plan works best for households that consistently use just a few kWh below the amount that kicks them up to the next tier. So if your bill consistently hovers around 950 kWh or 1,950 kWh, this could be just the plan for you. However, low usage customers should consider other plans. 

HVAC Protection And Bill Credits

The next cheapest plan is the 36 Month A/C Protect Premier for 2 Units plan. This plan’s average price is 15.9 cents per kWh. For three years, customers gain some added protection for their HVAC systems. And given the above-average heat lately in Texas summers, this could come in real handy. The plan’s pricing offers two bill credits: $35 at 1,000 kWh and $15 at 2,000 kWh. So make sure your usage is just above one of these thresholds to maximize this plan's pricing.

More Bill Credits and PowerPlug 

If you thought the first two plans had long names, this one is a doozy: 15 Month Usage Bill Credit + PowerPlug. Like the name’s word count, the average rate takes a bit of a jump here, too. The plan’s average price is 17.4 cents per kWh. This plan gives customers an added bonus in the form of a PowerPlug. This handy device makes any appliance a smart device. Additionally, you can monitor the appliance’s usage from the Constellation Connect app. The pricing offers the same bill credits as the previous plan: $35 at 1,000 kWh and $15 at 2,000 kWh. As before, align your usage with these targets to take full advantage of this plan.

For some Houston customers, Constellation plans are great, but they may not be exactly right for your situation. Fortunately, you can find many more plans at https://www.texaselectricityratings.com/electricity-rates. Pick one that works for you, and rest easy with your power bill.  

There’s No Fooling With April Houston Electricity

Which April Houston Electricity Plans Have Good Rates?

Saving this April on your Houston electricity is no joke! Check out how you could save more with these great plans.
We're not fooling around. You really could save more this April on your Houston electricity right now. Don't wait any longer; shop now!

As the calendar turns to spring in Texas, the familiar sights, sounds, and smells tantalize the senses. The trees are sprouting new leaves. The ping of Little League bats fills the city parks. And the aroma of freshly cut grass wafts through neighborhoods. In addition to these lovely things, it also happens to be a great time of year to shop for Texas electricity. April Houston electricity prices are great this year, and they’re ripe for the picking. 

Flat Rate and Low Bill

The best 12-month power plan right now is the Energy Texas Come & Take It 12 plan. Even though this plan’s 12.5-cent rate is higher than other plans, its average bill is the lowest at $125. So how can this be? Well, this plan has a flat rate across all usage. Therefore, customers don’t have to worry about missing out on bill credits. Yes, other plans have lower rates. But their bill credits cause their average bill to turn out higher.  

Watch Out For Bill Credit Plans

So what about those bill credit plans? Several good ones are available right now. They have lower rates, but they don't have the lowest bills. They could be good options if you can consistently earn the bill credits. 

The Just Energy Base Saver III-12 plan boasts a low 10-cent rate, yet the average bill is $144. The bill jumps when customers fail to earn the $75 bill credit for using at least 1,000 kWh in a billing cycle. Similarly, the TriEagle Energy Sure Value 12 plan has a $30 bill credit at the same threshold. However, the energy charge is higher. This results in an average rate of 11.4 cents and an average bill of $149.  

Despite having a higher average rate – 12.5 cents – than the other two bill credit plans, the average bill for the Constellation 12 Month Usage Bill Credit plan is $141. This plan has a $35 bill credit at 1,000 kWh and another $15 credit at 2,000 kWh. Interestingly, the plan is better for customers who average 1,000 kWh than it is for customers averaging 2,000 kWh. So that second bill credit may be a red herring for many customers. 

Honest To Goodness April Houston Electricity

There’s no fooling with April Houston electricity. You can find straightforward information about your electricity options at https://www.texaselectricityratings.com. Select the plan that works best for you, and begin saving before April showers bring May flowers.
