In North Texas electricity rates and plans are cheaper than in almost every deregulated are in Texas. Each electricity provider in Benbrook Texas offers a different rate and several plans to choose from. We help sort these electricity rates and plans out from cheapest to most expensive to help an energy consumer find the best price for their electricity in Benbrook TX.

If you are asked for a deposit and you cannot afford to pay that deposit you can try another provider in the comparison chart until you get approved for electricity service for little or no deposit.

The latest issue that has hit the news about Benbrook electricity prices and plans has to do with with some of the prepaid electricity companies out there. Many of these companies are changing the way they talk about their product and service because prepaid has started getting a really bad name in the media and among consumers. For instance, some recent news stories have been suggesting some low-income energy consumer’s have actually died from having their electricity prematurely turned off without proper notice. This is probably a long shot but it does hit on an important point. A lot of the prepaid electricity companies have a history of turning off their bad paying customers without proper notice. If a Benbrook Texas electricity customer does not pay their bill on time it does make sense for an electric provider to eventually shut the power off but the question is when does a provider have the right to do this? Their are Public Utility Commission Rules that stipulate what notice must be provided to a customer who has not paid their electricity bill as well as how many days the customer has to pay their bill before their electricity service is turned off.  If a Benbrook Texas electricity provider disconnects an energy consumers power prematurely they can be hit with a large penalty if that customer complains to the PUCT.

If you are a low income customer and you have bad credit or no credit at all we would like to suggest a no deposit electricity plan that is not prepay or pay as you go. You previously could sign up on what was known as a no deposit plan with Bounce Energy. What Bounce did was take $125 from the customer that would be deducted on their first months electricity bill. Instead of paying a deposit with a different electricity company that you would not see for atleast 12 months you would have your $125 deducted on your first bill. If you paid your electricity bill on time the first 3 months Bounce would proactively lower your Benbrook electricity rate to their cheapest rate plan available. Since this is no longer an option be sure to ask for their best rate plan for bad or low credit score customers to make sure they consider you for a low or no deposit electricity rate plan. This plan is no longer available but we have several prepaid providrs to compare in our compare tool at the top right of this page.

April 2009 Dallas Residential Electric Rates

We have gone back to check Dallas Texas electricity rates for the month of April 2009 to see where the electric providers fall in line on their prices. Some Dallas energy providers have prices that are several cents cheaper then some of the larger electric companies like TXU and Reliant. One of the reasons we put this list together is so that Dallas energy consumers can see that there are much better offers available for Dallas electricity service then what TXU Energy has to offer. For instance, checking the rates TXU Energy is offering as of today, April 17 2009, we see that they have a 1 year fixed rate listed at 13.8 cents a kWh. The cheapest available 12 month offer in the chart is for 9.4 cents per kWh with Champion Energy.

Texas Commercial Electric Rate Trend Line

Commercial Rate Trend

Commercial electric rates ended lower at year end and then spiked up along with oil when a barrel of oil sold at $100. The rest of the energy sector followed and that bottom in electric rates appears to be over.

Commercial Electric Rates in Texas have had their ups and downs during the year 2007 and a small window was available a couple weeks (Dec 18 – 28, 2007) to go and lock in near the bottom of where energy rates have been this year. That opportunity is over as the prices have bounced off of the support line back up again. Take notice just how often the bounce has occurred this year off this support line and ask yourself how many more times is it going to bounce before the rate starts heading back up. We may have seen the last of those low electric rates for sometime as you will notice rates can hover at their highs for sometime until they come back down again to their lows.

Waiting To Lock In

If you are waiting to lock in on a commercial electric rate until they come back down you may be spending more money doing this way then just locking in on something short term as you try and make up your mind. Electric companies in Texas generally charge a premium electric rate while you are off contract until you sign back up again. For those holding off it would be better to go ahead and sign up on something even if just for 1, 2 or 3 months. Electric rates on the shorter terms are much better then the longer term energy contracts. As an energy consultant I would however recommend going on a longer term contract for 8, 9 or 12 months as rates are still quite low in comparison to where they have been this year. By locking in while rates are low you will be insuring yourself against a rate spike that might go even higher.

Champion Energy Retail Electric Provider

Saving Money On Electricity In Houston

Champion Energy has a very low cost electric rate in the Houston area but current rates now available may be even better so be sure to compare their prices with the many providers and rates listed in our chart. You can find our compare tool at the top right of this page. Back in Jan 8 of 2008 Champion’s price was lower than any of the other electric companies I had seen so far except for Startex Power. Currently there are new providers out there that may beat them both.

As of Jan 8 2008 they only offer one term at 12 months but this is the most popular term for most people so it usually works for most peoples needs. The rate for January is at 11.1 cents a kWh with a $4.95 monthly service fee but Champion’s electric rate has gone up since then. If you add in the service fee into the rate goes up about .004 cents kWh which is still a lower rate then the most competitive providers offering residential electric service in Houston. For a more competitive electric rate then Champion Energy with no monthly service fee we recommend Startex Power. Depending on your area in Texas their rate will be higher or lower.

If you live in Dallas Texas, Tyler Texas, Alpine, Fort Worth or other cities on the other side of the state there are cheaper providers then Champion. You can find out more here. Learn more about Texas Residential Electricity.
