Chariot Energy plans in Houston, Dallas west and south Texas

Of course, as a Chariot Energy plan changes from TDU (utility company) to a different TDU, the final billed electricity rate will change. Chariot, like all other retail electric providers in Texas, passes the TDU delivery charge (monthly fee and energy cost) to customers to pay. Check out the current rates per TDU service area:

Utility company tariffs in Texas : MARCH 30 2021
TDU TDU monthly base fee TDU ¢/kWh energy rate
AEP North $3.57/mo 3.0078¢/kWh
Oncor Electric Delivery $3.42/mo 3.4928¢/kWh
CenterPoint $4.39/mo 3.2669¢/kWh
AEP Central $4.27/mo 3.7458¢/kWh
TNMP $7.85/mo 4.0403¢/kWh

Even though this is more of an estimation, using a general location tends to be the fastest way to understand which utility company services an exact address. Below are the Texas power grids, their coverage areas with larger cities, and the utility company outage information for each. Keep in mind that Chariot Energy only works on the ERCOT grid, since it is the one open to the retail energy market at this time.

Chariot Energy rates

All of the plans that Chariot Energy offers to customers are on a fixed rate. The only exception is when a customer doesn't act when their Chariot plan is ending - in this case, the customer is shifted on a variable rate plan that is a "default" product by Chariot Energy.

Chariot Energy rates: Fixed electricity plans

A fixed rate is the ¢/kWh energy cost whose rated price does not change over term of the contract. Once the contract is finished, unless you renew it or terminate it, it will automatically switch to a variable rate plan.

Electricity customers looking for a fixed rate plan should choose a plan with a term of 12 months or longer. Electricity prices per kilowatt-hour change throughout the year, and you may actually lose money by not being able to take advantage of prices when they are low.

Chariot Energy plans in Texas: the GridEdge plan

Tip on fixed rates Locking in a fixed rate for longer periods may keep more cash in your account, since electricity prices tend to increase over time.

Chariot Energy rates: Variable electricity plans

A variable rate is a rate whose price (in ¢/kWh) changes from month to month. A variable rate is at the discretion of the provider, or the provider can give rules on the variability of their rate.

Unlike most electric providers, Chariot Energy does not offer a variable rate plan to new customers. Chariot Energy customers that have met the end of their electricity plan term and have not chosen a new plan, will be rolled on to a variable-rate, month-to-month "default renewal product" plan.

Customers that want to leave a Chariot Energy plan early (more than 14 days prior to the contract end date) must be ready for the $15/month-remaining termination fee.

Base fee charges in Chariot Energy electricity plans

Base fee charges (a monthly fee) are often applied to plans, or may kick-in when consumption drops under a certain level (often considered a minimum usage fee charge). Chariot Energy plans do not currently have a base fee charge, only the mandatory utility company's monthly "base" fee (between $3 and $8 per month, depending on the utility company).

All you need to know about an electricity plan Each retail electric provider (REP) in Texas gives the details on each plan they offer on the Electricity Facts Label (EFL).
Be sure to check out the EFL to understand how each plan's pricing works and if the usage pricing is right for your household!

Renewable "green" energy : Chariot Energy plans

green renewable energy

Chariot only offers 100% renewable energy plans. Although Chariot Energy is not able to see that the energy each household consumes is powered by renewable resources, Chariot does ensure the retirement of the necessary amount of renewable energy credits (RECs) in order to authenticate the green energy content in each plan.

Chariot Energy's goal is to support solar power but may, in some or all cases, choose to buy a fraction of the total energy needed from other renewable sources (like wind and hydro).

The renewable plans offered by Chariot Energy, like all electric providers, are intended to financially support the green energy market - and don't necessarily mean that the power used in each household is renewable.

Chariot Energy promo codes and promotions

Many retail electric providers offer promotions to get current customers to sway the people they know into joining their electricity plans. With the retail energy market becoming increasingly competitive, Chariot Energy is no stranger to the promo-codes and promotions game.
