Electricity Plans have EFTs – What Are They?
If you want to skip all of the marketing language to understand what is really going on with an electricity plan, you need to read the plan’s EFL. You should never sign up for an electricity plan without first reading through the Electricity Facts Label. Don’t worry, it’s a short document. It’s usually only about a page long with the most important stuff near the top.
Colleyville electricity providers must make an EFL available for each plan they sell and update the document every time rates are updated.
Competition in Texas encourages electric companies to innovate when they are designing electricity plans. For the most part, this innovation is a positive for electricity consumers. But it does sometimes make it harder to compare one plan with the next.
Comparison is made a little bit easier by the fact that all ETFs contain average rates for 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. However, the calculations that make up these rates can be very different from one plan to the next.
The EFL will contain the calculation used to determine your electricity bill each month. You should look for any fixed cost monthly bill charges. These charges will drive up the average electricity rate if you use a comparatively small amount of electricity. That’s a big part of the reason that rates for 500 kWhs are almost always higher than rates for 2000 kWhs.
You should also watch out for disappearing bill credits. They kick in once you use a certain amount of electricity in the month but could disappear again if you use a still greater amount.
The EFL will also contain information about cancellation fees, contract lengths and other plan details.

How Are Colleyville Electricity Rates Set?
Perhaps you think that your electricity rate determines how much you will pay on your electricity bill. That’s not actually how Texas electricity works though. The amount you pay on your electricity bill is used to calculate what your average electricity rate is (or was for the month). In other words, your true electricity rate can’t be known until after your bill is calculated.
The electricity rates you see advertised by electric companies in Colleyville are usually just estimates of what your electricity rate will be depending on how many kWhs of electricity you may use. When your first electricity bill arrives, you will find that your actual electricity rate is almost certainly different than the rate that is advertised on the plan. And it will likely be different each month.
Here is an example of this. Let’s look at this example of an electricity plan sold in Colleyville. It will show you how the advertised electricity rates are determined and how your real life rate could be much different than the marketed rate.
This is one of the simpler rate structures for an electricity plan in Colleyville. Many of them are way more complicated.
- Energy Charge = $0.0486 per kWh
- Monthly Service Fee = $9.95 per month (per billing cycle for usage less than 1000 kWh)
- TDU Delivery Charge = $5.47 per month
- TDU Delivery Charge = $0.040716 per kWh
This plan is built on four pricing components. One of them, the $5.47 charge is a flat fee added to your bill each month regardless of your electricity usage.
Another charge is a fixed monthly service fee of $9.95 added to your bill each month. This fee can go away if you use over a certain amount of electricity. These two fees ensure that your average electricity rate will always be different.
With this plan your electricity rate would be 10.5 cents per kWh when you use 999 kWh. If you use just one more kWh your effective electricity rate drops by a penny as a result of the monthly billing charge disappearing.
