Say, for example, that you live in a larger home. In this case, you should be comparing the 2000 kWh rates. If you live in an apartment, the 500 kWh rates are more appropriate for you. If the size of your home falls somewhere in between, the 1000 kWh rate is the one you should be looking at.
Some plans look very attractive at 2000 kWhs but will end up being a lot more expensive if you use less electricity than that in a month. If you live in a small home and buy a plan based on a great rate at the 2000 kWh usage level, you might be disappointed with your electric bill.
Here is an example of how quickly rates can change based on how many kWhs you use. A plan may offer a usage credit that applies to your bill once you use over 2000 kWhs in a billing cycle. This would have the effect of decreasing your average electricity rate by 1 cent per hour once your usage hits 2000. However, if you use just a tiny bit less, you will not see the benefit of the $20 bill credit. This will make your average rate higher than someone who uses more than 2000 kWh.
Sources of Brazoria Electricity Plans
Most power sold by Brazoria electric companies comes from natural gas. It is cheap, abundant and ideal for fueling the power plants that generate electricity for the Texas electric grid.
The future may belong to wind energy, however. Wind has been the fasted growing source of new electricity generation for the past 10 years. Government subsidies have encouraged investment in wind power while technology has steadily made it cheaper to produce electricity from wind.
Although natural gas and wind have become the main sources of electricity in Texas, coal still contributes substantially to the Texas electric grid. Texas is the largest producer of CO2 and sulfur dioxide from coal in the country. This comes almost entirely from power plants within the state that burn coal. About 40% of the coal consumed in Texas is mined in Texas.
Coal is feeling the pressure from cheaper and cleaner sources of fuel such as natural gas and wind energy. In the future, a decreasing amount of the electricity consumed in Brazoria will come from coal.

Experts say it was founded in 1828 by Stephen F. Austin to gave the granted land to John Austin (no relation between the two). Legend has it that the first Masonic meeting place in the state of Texas was had in Brazoria. On the map Brazoria is close to one major city–Brazosport (12 miles)–and somewhat close to Brazoria at 51 miles away. The city has a famous resident in Sofie Herzog.

What Is the EFL on My Electricity Plan?
Before choosing a Brazoria electric company and an energy plan, make certain that you have read the plan’s EFL. The EFL is a document required by the PUC. It is published by every electricity provider for each plan they sell. In it you will find the things that might have been left out of the marketing material or advertisements. For every plan listed on Vault Electricity, you will find a link to the plan’s EFL.
It will explain how your monthly bill will be calculated and how the electricity rates for the plan are set. It will include all the costs you should expect on your bill including:
- Energy charges assed by the provider
- Time of day rates for plans like Free nights and weekend plans
- TDU passthrough flat fees
- TDU per kWh fees
- Monthly billing charges
- Usage credits tiered electricity rates
Most companies list TDU pass through fees out separately from the other costs that go into the plan.
TDU fees are assessed to everyone in order to pay the regional electricity delivery utilities that deliver everyone’s power regardless of who they choose as a retail electric provider. They also maintain the power infrastructure in your area and respond to power outages. The fees apply to anyone who gets electricity in Brazoria regardless of who their provider is. They are the same for everyone.
All of the other fees associated with a plan are up to the retail electric provider to set.
