Where Does La Marque Electricity Get the Electricity?
There are several sources of power that provider electricity to electric companies in La Marque. About half of the power used in Texas comes from natural gas. Natural gas has many characteristics that make it a valuable source of power in Texas.
More natural gas is produced in Texas than anywhere else in the U.S. This has resulted in the price of natural gas going down over the past decade.
It’s possible to quickly ramp up electricity production from power plants that use natural gas to generate power. This is useful in maintaining the equilibrium between the available supply and demand on the state’s electrical grid at any moment in time. If the supply and demand on the grid isn’t balanced, it could cause the grid to become unstable and lead to power outages.
There are a lot of benefits with wind energy, but predictability is not one of them. It is an intermittent source of electricity. Wind turbines can only make electricity when the wind blows. Other than that, wind is a great source of clean renewable energy. Texas invested heavily in infrastructure over the past decade to support the large and growing wind industry within its borders.
What Should I Know About La Marque, Texas?
Last checked, the city of La Marque, Texas had a population of 16,800, meaning that it ranked 157th in total population size in the state. Population growth for the city has been trending in a positive direction for a while now. It resides within Galveston County on the southeastern part of the map, nearest to the Texas cities of Hitchcock, Texas City, San Leon, Bacliff, and Galveston, to name a few. The city used to be called Highlands (some say because it neighbored Highland Creek), but was changed in the 1890’s. The name in French (La Marque) means “the mark”. Once about 1914 rolled around, and the community had been well-rooted in commercial enterprise for many years, it was reached by four separate railroads. This location made it easy to maintain commercial activity; also, in the early 21st century, high housing prices in nearby Galveston made it pressing for many citizens to find cheaper housing elsewhere. Many of those residents came over to La Marque, leading to more population growth.
Currently, the economy of La Marque is stable. The unemployment rate was around average, as well as job growth, when last checked. Wages earned are below the national and state average, but cost of living is lower on average. Also, the most frequent occupations are in Education, Retail, and Healthcare.
Why Should I Read My Electricity Plan EFL?
Every electricity plan listed for sale in La Marque is required to have a document called the Electricity Facts Label (EFL). Just like a nutrition facts label, the EFL lets you know what’s included in the electricity plan you are considering. It tells you how much of your energy will come from renewable energy, what the cancelation fee is and what the contract length is.
More to the point, the EFL will contain all the information you need to make an informed decision before you choose a plan. It will disclose the rate formula that is used to calculate your energy bill at the end of each billing cycle.
It will also include three different electricity rates. Every plan marketed in Texas must publish an average rate for three benchmark usage levels: for 500 kWH, 1000 kWh, and 2000 kWh per month. At the top of the EFL you will see these three average electricity rates.
The EFL will list every cost, fee, rate, and credit included in your electricity bill, so you can understand how the average rate is calculated and how likely you are to really get the rate that is promised.
It will list any bill credits or fees that may apply within certain usage ranges for each billing cycle. Credits that only apply within certain small ranges of electricity usage can make the published electricity rates all but unattainable 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.
