How are La Porte Electricity Rates Set?
Electric companies in La Porte, TX can price and structure their electricity plans however they want. This has resulted in a lot of diversity in the types of products available to La Porte consumers. Electricity providers tend to tailor their offerings to specific types of customers who have specific needs and specific electricity usage habits. Free nights and free weekend plans are just one example of this.
With so many different pricing structures, it can be difficult to compare electricity rates across multiple providers and plans. Bundled all-in rate plan where there is one price per kWh that applies to every kWh you use are largely a thing of the past among Texas electricity providers.
Instead, the electricity rate for most plans is a moving target; even if the plan is marketed as a ‘fixed rate’ electricity plan. Your rate changes from one billing cycle to the next depending on how much power you use between billing cycles. This is because most plans are a blend of flat fees, per kWh fees and, in many cases, usage credits that only apply if you use above or below a specific amount of electricity in a month. This can make rates unpredictable since no one uses the same amount of electricity each month.
Her is an example of how a La Porte electricity plan might be structured. These numbers are found in the EFL document of an actual plan recently sold in La Porte.
– TDU Delivery Charge = $5.47 per month
– TDU Delivery Charge = $0.040716 per kWh
– Energy Charge = $0.0486 per kWh
– Monthly Service Fee = $9.95 per month (per billing cycle for usage less than 1000 kWh)
When you do the math on this plan you get an average rate of 11.2 cents for 500 kWh and 8.9 cents for 1000. The big difference between the two reflects the fact that the TDU Delivery Charge flat monthly fee applies regardless of how many kWhs you use for the month. In addition, the Monthly Service Fee is waived once you use at least 1000 kWh for the month bringing down your bill and average rate at that point.

Historically, the city was established as the result of a speculation in land by investors.

The Galveston Hurricane devastated the area. This affected the La Porte’s livelihood as well.

Don’t Skip the Electricity Plan’s EFL
Your can of soup has a standard nutritional facts label on it. Every electricity plan marketed in Texas has something similar called an Electricity Facts Label. Just like the nutrition label, it lets you know what’s in your electricity plan.
The EFL will contain the relevant information about the plan and will show you the rate formula that is used to determine your electricity bill every month. Every plan marketed in Texas publishes average all-in rates for 500 kWH, 1000 kWh, and 2000 kWh of usage. The EFL will show you each of these benchmark average electricity rates.
It will break down every cost included in your electricity bill, so you can understand how the average rate is calculated.
It will list any bill credits or fees that go into effect (or disappear) at certain usage levels for each billing cycle. Credits that appear or go away based on a narrow range of kWhs in usage can slant the published electricity rates to make a plan look much better on paper than in reality.
You can also read the EFL to discover any other fine print that comes along with the plan. Every plan listed on Vaultelectricity.com will have an EFL link.
