Pro Tip: Read the Electricity Facts Label
Every electricity plan marketed in Texas has something called an Electricity Facts Label. Just like a nutrition label, it lets you know what’s in your electricity plan. It tells you how much of your electricity will come from renewable energy sources, what your contract length is and what the cancelation fee is.
More importantly, the EFL will contain all the pertinent information about the plan and will show you the rate formula that is used to calculate your light bill at the end of the month. Every plan marketed in Texas publishes average all-in rates for 500 kWH, 1000 kWh, and 2000 kWh of electricity usage. The top of the EFL will list each of these benchmark average electricity rates.
It will break down every cost, fee, rate, and credit included in your electricity bill, so you can understand how the average rate is calculated.
It will list any bill credits or fees that may apply within certain usage ranges for each billing cycle. Credits that appear or go away based on a narrow range of kWhs in usage can make the published electricity rates only theoretical if you are not likely to have your electricity usage fall within that range.
You can also read the EFL to learn about the other fine print that comes along with the plan. Every plan listed on Vaultelectricity.com will have an EFL link.
Cancellation Fees Do Not Play a Big Part When Comparing Electricity Plans
When comparing the cheapest electricity rates in Joshua, you should be aware of the Early Termination Fees (ETFs). Although most ETFs aren’t that much, some can be more expensive.
Fortunately, you will probably never be asked to pay an Early Termination Fee. There are two reasons for this.
When you switch to a new electric plan, it’s probably because you are in search of a better rate for your electricity. Once you get a good deal on electricity, you will not need to switch away from it because of all the cash you will be saving on your light bill. By keeping staying on the plan for the duration of the term of the contract, you will not risk having to pay the ETF.
Even if you love your electricity plan, you may have to move before the electricity contract is complete. Fortunately, moving will not usually cause you to have to pay a cancellation fee.
If you can prove you no longer live at the address the electricity plan was associated with, you can usually avoid the ETF. It’s always a good idea to read the Energy Facts Labels (EFLs) of the electricity plans you are comparing. The EFL will clearly explain when and if the ETF will be charged.

Historically the city is named after the biblical Joshua by D.B. McMillan.

It was around the year 1881 that the community was officially set up. A post office was already developed and a store came next. Farm produce was the biggest export for the city, but soon, just as the city was picking up momentum, a number of fires devastated the community. Despite this though, the citizens of Joshua would rally around the event and continue to prosper regardless. The city was incorporated in the 1950’s.
