Texas Power Price Roundup: Cheapest Electricity Prices for July 2nd, 2015


electricity-savings-roundup

This is the second in our series of weekly posts that will round up some of the best prices for electricity in Texas. Our selections are for residential customers consuming 500 kWh/month, 1,000 kWh/month, and 2,000 kWh/month, based on the cheapest prices available at the time of writing. Please keep in mind, however, that prices in Texas can change daily, and so this selection serves as a snapshot of prices in Texas.

Call us at 1 (832) 460-0233 for up-to-the-minute prices and recommendations about the cheapest prices for you in Texas

What Type of Plan to Choose?

In general, we recommend going for a fixed rate, for at least a one year term. The lowest rates offered in Texas at the moment tend to be for 12 month contracts, and locking in a price over the long term should also shield you from price fluctuations throughout the year.

Whether you're new to the Texas electricity market, or a seasoned electricity shopper, we've got lots of information that can help you out the next time you are shopping for electricity in Texas!
