Price trendsThe chart below summarizes the cheapest 12-month electric plans currently available at various generalized usages1. But don’t choose a plan based on this chart! Instead, plug your home’s electricity usage into our RateGrinder tool to find the best plan for YOU quickly and easily.

Think you’ve seen better elsewhere? Deceptive teaser rates and other pricing gimmicks are common, even among some of the plans below. As a result, relatively small shifts in your electricity consumption can noticeably impact what you pay each month. Always compare the average rate over your range of monthly usages. Doing so leaves nowhere for gimmicks to hide, and even lets you work them to your benefit. For more help, read “How To Shop for Electricity in Texas“.
