Why It’s So Important To Compare Electricity Rates Often
Here in Alice, TX, electricity rates are always on the move. There are several factors that contribute to rate volatility in the Texas electricity market. Weather often plays a part in electricity rates. This is because extremally cold or hot summer temperatures can place heavier demand on the grid. This in turn can drive up the spot or day-ahead wholesale prices for electricity.
Natural gas prices and the expectations of future price movements in the natural gas markets play a big role in how electricity is priced in Texas. Even though wind power in Texas has grown substantially, natural gas is still the most important single source for keeping Texas power plants in operation.
Outages at power plants can affect how much power is available for the grid at any given time. A shortage of supply can put upward prices on electricity rates.
Generally speaking, consumers aren’t directly impacted by these short term movements in electricity rates. Assuming you have a fixed rate electricity plan, you aren’t going to see your rates jump around from day to day. But these factors along with others affect how electricity providers price their fixed rate electricity plans. If the next several months look to be shaping up for higher wholesale electricity prices, they will price there fixed rate plans accordingly.
Providers are constantly trying to win business by offering lower rates than their competition.

Tips for Comparing Electric Companies in Alice
The pricing for some electricity plans is straight forward and uncomplicated. These plans are the rare exception though. Most electricity plans sold in Texas have a complicated pricing formula that determines your average electricity rate. Plans are usually priced with a mixture of flat fees, usage based charges, and bill credits that may fluctuate depending on usage level. Many plans also feature bill credits that appear when you use above a certain amount of electricity but go away when you use too much.
This mashup of fees and charges can result in an average electricity rate within a single plan that is a lot different for someone who uses 500 kWh of monthly electricity usage than for someone who uses 2000 kWh of electricity in a month.
If you live in a larger home, you should be comparing rates based on 2000 kWh of average electricity usage – not 1000 kWh or 500 kWh.
If you live in an apartment you must ensure you are comparing based on the 500 kWh average electricity rates. If you are looking at the 2000 kWh average electricity rates, you may not be happy when you get your first electricity bill and find you are paying a much higher rate than you expected.

About Alice, Texas
Nicknamed “The Hub City of South Texas,” this Jim Wells County city has a population of about 19,000 people. This makes it the 141st largest city in the state–although population growth has been declining for some years now. Regardless, the economy is vibrant and the atmosphere characteristically Texan. The city itself was established in 1888 and named after the daughter of Richard King (the famous King Ranch proprietor and founder). Her name was Alice Gertrudis King Kleberg and thus the city was christened “Alice.” In addition to this, another notable fact about the city is that two different Nobel Prize winning scientists were born in Alice: James Allison (Physiology) and Robert F. Curl Jr. (Chemistry). On the map the nearest major cities are Corpus Christi (41 miles) and San Antonio (121 miles).
It is called “Hub City” because of the omnipresence of oil drilling in the area. The economy is largely driven by this industry as a result of its strategic location between major oil distributors between McAllen and Corpus Christi (among others). Some of the firms that employ the manufacturing and production workforce are Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hughes, Weatherford International, and many others.
