Compare TXU Energy Rates
If you have been needing to compare and shop for a cheaper Texas electric provider but just have not had the time we would like to encourage you to do so.
Texas electric rates during the summer of 2010 and 2011 have been around 8 – 9 cents per kWh on average when looking at the cheapest providers. During the summer of 2008 a cheap rate would have been 16 cents a kWh. As of October 2011 you can sign up for a cheap electric rate in the Dallas area at around 8.3 cents a kWh for 12 months fixed. In Houston the rate is closer to 9.3 cents a kWh for a 1 year fixed rate. If your TXU Energy rates are becoming unbearably high then we recommend switching to a cheaper electric company. We only recommend that you come off of your TXU Energy rate if you are currently off contract with them. We never recommend that you break a current contract that has not expired yet. The historical utility area of TXU is the Dallas area but they now operate in Houston as well.

Going From TXU to Reliant Energy
If you have considered switching off of TXU Energy and onto a new electric provider that you have heard advertise on the radio than please read this. Reliant Energy rates are currently being advertised (back in May of 2009) on billboards and on radio saying that they are now lowering their electric rates by “up to %10”. Unfortunately this means that you would still have to pay Reliant Energy around 13 – 14 cents a kWh when there are several energy providers offering residential electric rates in the 9 – 10 cents per kWh range for a 1 year fixed rate (as of May 2009). Don’t be fooled by a clever marketing campaign. Reliant Energy radio ads have their coworkers on the ads explaining that they love being able to help people but in reality paying an inflated price for electricity service is not really a help in this current economy. There are several reputable electric companies in Texas that offer much cheaper electricity service than Reliant and TXU Energy rates. We have a comparison tool of electric companies that beat both Reliant Energy rates and TXU Electric rates that we would be happy for you to try for yourself and see if in fact there are savings.
Comparison Chart Shows All Fees and Charges in Energy Rate
We encourage you to browse through the 1 year, 2 year, and 3 year fixed electric rate terms and pick the rate and monthly term that suits you best. The chart tool above has all fees and charges disclosed so you know exactly what you are signing up for. We want you to have no surprises when signing up for electric service as some providers we do not have on the chart do not disclose all charges in their rate. We do not work with Texas electricity companies that hide certain fees and charges that most electric companies will disclose in plain English.
