If you are relocating from out of state or are moving to a different Texas city from places like Austin, El Paso, Garland, Plano, El Paso and a few other areas you may be happy to know that you may now choose your electric company. Texas is the most competive electricity market in the world and because of this it has helped in lowering electricity rates for residential and commercial electricity service customers.
To begin shopping for residential electricity rates and comparing electric companies just use our comparison chart at the top left of this page. You will need to enter in your zip code and a list of electricity rates and providers will appear. Pick the cheapest provider based on either a fixed or variable term.
Make note that a variable price may be lower but it is subject to go up in price after the first month. This is because you are not locking in your electricity price when choosing a variable rate.
For most people a fixed electric rate makes more sense because you will have a predictable electricity rate and you will know what the price will be each and every month.
The choice in Texas is called the Power to Choose because you have the ability compare over 20 different competitive electricity providers and find the cheapest rate.
