The PUC of Texas Takes Care of Killeen, Texas Residents

killeen texas electricity companiesThe Public Utility Commission of Texas takes care of residents in Killeen, Texas and the rest of the state. Two major enforcement orders earlier this year fined two different electric providers. The providers were guilty of leaving the retail electric business without refunding deposits and prepayments. Both providers were ordered to pay back the deposits and prepayments.

Cases like this prove that not all electric service providers are created equal. Some shady providers only wanted to rob unsuspecting customers of their hard-earned money.

One of the things you need to know are the requirements each company has for setting the amount of a deposit that may be required. The stronger your credit rating, the less you will have to come up with, if anything at all. You will find some companies that will have less stringent credit requirements, especially helpful in these trying economic times.  Some offer pre-paid service plans which will have higher rates, but eliminate having to come up with several hundred dollars to initiate service.

Another decision to be made is the length of your contract with any company. If rates are low, and you have been established in a residence to know your monthly usage, you may find it in your best interests to sign a long-term contract to lock-in your Killeen TX electricity rates. Of course, you can always try a service for a shorter period of time and remove the risk of having to pay any early termination fees.

One of our energy consultants can go over different questions and issues related to electricity prices. One of the most common confusions about electric rates has to do with transmission and distribution service provider charges. Commercial electric rates do not initially have the TDSP charges bundled into the electric rate. This unbundled rate is not to be deceptive as all commercial electric providers do not initially bundle the rate until they know your estimated or historical electricity usage.

Once the Killeen Texas electricity provider has your estimated usage they can quote you a total bundled rate. Most commercial electricity providers do not mark up the TDSP charges although it is not considered against PUCT regulations to mark them up so it is important to watch out for this practice.

Residential electricity rates are different in that most Killeen TX electricity providers will “fix” the TDSP charges and bundle them to the “energy only” charge giving you a total bundled rate. Due to a new PUCT and ERCOT rule all providers in deregulated Texas areas must pass through an additional smart meter or advanced meter fee. This fee is about $3 – $4 more per month on all Texas energy consumer bills regardless if their TDSP company has installed the new smart meter device yet. There may also be a monthly service fee some Killeen TX electric companies will charge that is generally about $4.95 – $9.95 that is disclosed next to the rate. Some Texas electricity providers make the monthly service fee hiddeen from view so be sure to check the “facts label” if you are unsure if there is one. Our residential electricity rates include all fees and charges and any monthly service fees are clearly listed next to the rate.

Some electric companies in Killeen will never charge a monthly service fee unless the energy customer uses under 500 kWh a month in electric usage. Since not very many customers use less than 500 kWh a month it isn’t a concern for many however if you have a small apartment and are single you might want to find a provider in Killeen that does not have a monthly service fee regardless of the amount of electricity usage used.
