Breeze Energy Service Territory

|Residential fixed 100% renewable rate||6, 9, 12, 18, 24 months||
||Ranges from $100 to $250||These rates are standard in the Texas retail electricity market. We tend to recommend fixed rates more than other rates, since they are more predictable. There might be a deposit required if you do not fit the proper requirements, but this is the case for all offers which are not pre-pay.|
|Residential variable 100% renewable rate||1 month (renewed each month)||
||$0||This rate is interesting for people moving into their home for a short period of time (6 months or less). There is no cancellation fee. Nevertheless, the price showed will only be valid the first month. The other billing cycles, the price will evolve, and this at the sole discretion of Breeze Energy, which means that they can increase the price at will, without being required to give a market-based justification.|

Description of the Plan Types
Fixed rate plans
A fixed rate is a rate whose price (in ¢/kWh) does not change over the whole period of the contract. Once the contract is finished, unless you renew it or terminate it, it will automatically switch to a variable rate.

Customers report that they appreciate savings on fixed rate electricity plans from Breeze Energy. Fixed rate plans can often be a good deal if you are able to lock in a good rate at the right time of year.
Electricity customers should opt for fixed rate contracts of longer periods of time, in order to benefit from lower prices. Electricity prices per kilowatt-hour fluctuate throughout the year, and you may actually lose money by not being able to take advantage of prices when they are low. However, because electricity prices tend to increase over time, locking in fixed rates for longer periods may prove advantageous and deliver savings.
Variable rate plans
A variable rate is a rate whose price (in ¢/kWh) varies each month. A variable can be at the discretion of the supplier, or the supplier can give rules on the variability of their rate.

With Breeze Energy, there are 2 different base charges:
- The first basse charge is for all levels of usage
- The second is only for bills with a usage under 1000 kWh. This is justified by the fact that even if you use little or no electricity, there is still a need for maintenance.

Breeze Energy has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on the small number of complaints that have been made. Breewe Energy offers a broad range of plans, albeit all renewable plans. The terms & conditions are clear when you read them, but in some cases, the sales people aree not entirely transparent on the nature of the product they are selling. It is therefore important to go through Callmepower when signing up with this provider, in order to avoid surprises, and to make sure you ask all the relevant questions when speaking with one of Breeze Energy's sales person or customer service representative. Also, on other websites than BBB, more complaints have been recorded, concerning misleading promises, and unexpectedly high bills.
