Explanation of Rate Options

Fixed vs Variable Rates Options

A fixed rate does not change over the whole period of the contract, meaning that for the length of the contract (3, 6, 12, or 24 months) the price you pay for electricity in ¢/kWh does not change. In general we recommend choosing fixed rate contracts of at least 12 months or more. As 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. You can find more information about fixed rates in our guide to fixed prices.

In general, we do not recommend variable rates, as most customers report negative experiences with them. With prices not guaranteed after the first month, variable rates tend to be highly unpredictable. Find out more about variable electricity prices in Texas.

Base Charges/Minimum Usage Fees

Base charges are flat charges that are charged every month regardless of the amount of power consumed. Minimum usage fees kick in when customer consumption is below a certain minimum monthly threshold. Entrust Energy does not charge minimum usage fees or base charges.

Green Energy Plans

Entrust Energy offers 100% green energy plans. Entrust Energy's standard plans include 11,6% renewable content, which is just over the state average of 10.7%.

Customer Reviews of Entrust Energy

We give Entrust Energy a star-rating rating.

Positive reviews of Entrust Energy often mention savings on monthly bills. Most negative reviews focus on unpleasant experiences with door-to-door sales agents. As of February 2016, Entrust Energy had a F rating from the Better Business Bureau, which is based on the number of complaints that have been made against it relative to its size (a negative sign) and its failure to resolve underlying causes of a pattern of complaints. What's more, its score with the Texas PUC is at "highest complaint ratio" (ratio of complaints to the size of the company). PUC statistics for the types of complaints are spread amongst billing problems, provision of service, service discontinuation, and slamming.

Entrust Energy appears to use door-to-door agents for electricity sales in Texas. Find out why we don't recommend door to electricity sales.
