When To Start Planning the Renewal of Your Electricity Plan
Don’t make the mistake of going off contract. If the contract on your current plan expires, your provider will gladly keep you on as a customer. But, usually, you will be transitioned to a monthly plan at a rate that is much higher than you before. Don’t find yourself in a situation where you are suddenly paying more than you had been for the same electricity.
The best thing to do is to begin shopping for a new plan as early as 60 days prior to the end of your current contract. With most providers you can enroll in a new plan with a start date as much as 60 days in the future.
If you find a rate that is better than what you are already paying you should consider enrolling in that plan. That allows you to lock in that great price; even if the start date is a couple of months away.
What to Do If Electricity Rates in Forney Have Moved Higher
Remember, Texas electricity rates go up and down a lot. You may find that the whole market has moved higher and all of the rates being offered in by everyone are higher than your current contract. If this happens you can be patient, wait, and watch the market until your current plan expiration date is a little closer to see if rates go down.
Keep in mind, though, that if electricity rates for the whole market have moved higher, your rate too will go higher once your current plan expires. In this case you are still better off choosing from the cheapest plan currently available. Otherwise, you could be paying even more once your current plan ends.
Understanding the Electricity Facts Label of the Electricity Plan
Every electricity plan marketed to consumers in Texas must have a standard discloser document known as an EFL (Electricity Facts Label). In this document you will find the electricity rates for the plan. Published average electricity rates are calculated using algorithms that spell out costs that depend on how much electricity is used in a billing cycle. These formulas are made of various fixed fees, passthrough fees, and electricity charges.
The EFL will list average electricity rates for hypothetical homes that use 500 kWhs, 1000 Kwhs, or 2000 kWhs. You are very unlikely to use these exact amounts of electricity each month. But the fees and costs listed in the EFL should give you some idea of what you could expect to pay if your level of electricity usage falls somewhere between those standard usage levels. In the real world, almost no one hits exactly 1000 kWhs in a billing cycle.
Other things electricity providers must include in EFLs are early termination fees and length of contract term. The EFL format is intended to help people understand exactly what goes in to the price they will pay for the plan.
Electricity Saving Tips for Texas Residents
Although they make up a large part of your electric bill, air conditioning units are a must-have in Forney. These energy-intensive appliances use more electricity than any other appliance for most Texas homeowners. But it’s just a fact of life here in Texas.
Most people understand the importance of regularly changing out the air filters, but it’s an easy chore to forget. Fresh filters make it easier for the a/c units to move the air throughout the house. This reduces the amount of power required to cool your home.
Luckily, the a/c filters often cost very little and they can be changed out in less than a minute. That little bit of money spent on a new filter can equate to big savings every month on your electric bill.
