Featured Electricity Rates In Mansfield, Texas
How are Mansfield Electricity Rates Calculated?
Electricity providers in Mansfield are allowed to set their own electricity rates. That’s what it having a competitive market means. But there is a lot more that goes into an electricity rate than most people know. All-in bundled rates are very rare these days. Generally, the rate you see Mansfield, TX electric companies advertising is an average rate that factors in all of the various costs, fees, and tiered costs. This is why there is usually a different rate for 1000 kWhs usage than there is for 2000 kWh usage; even within the same plan.

Here is an example from a typical plan. There are five cost components that go into the electricity rate calculation for this plan:
- Energy Rate = 5.80 ¢ per kWh
- Base Charge = $7.95 per month
- TDU Electric Delivery Charge = $3.42 per month
- TDU Electric Delivery Charge = 3.697 ¢ per kWh
- Credit for Billing cycle for usage greater than 2000 kWh = $40 per month
These are the charges that make up the cost of your electric bill. You will note that a couple of these charges are fixed charges ($7.95 per month and $3.42 per month). These will not change from month to month regardless of how much or how little electricity you use. As a result of this, your average electricity rate will tend to be lower when you use more kWhs because that fixed cost is averages out across more kWhs.
One of the items is actually a credit, not a cost. Notice this credit applies as soon as you use 2000 kWh in a billing cycle. This results in much lower average electricity rate as soon as you hit 2000 kWh in usage.
The average electricity rates for this plan are:
- 11.8¢/kWh @500 kWh
- 10.6¢/kWh @1000 kWh
- 8.1¢/kWh @2000 kWh
We Are a Proud Member of the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce

Do All Mansfield Electric Companies Have to Run Credit Checks?
Mansfield electric companies don’t own the electricity they sell. They have to buy in off of the grid before selling it to you. Power plants cost a lot of money to build and operate. When electricity providers sell power to consumers, they must first buy this electricity from the owners of those capital assets.
Like just about any other venture that makes money selling a product, electric companies in Mansfield buy their product and resell this product on the retail market at a small profit on each kilowatt.
When a consumer doesn’t pay their utility bill at month end, the company loses the money they had to spend to buy it from the producers. If this happens too often, they will be out of business.
That’s why it’s necessary for them to make sure the people they enroll in an electricity plan are likely pay their bills. The credit check helps lower their default rate when it comes to people paying their bills.
The credit check is known as a soft credit check and doesn’t have an impact on the applicant’s credit score. The result of the credit check will inform the company as to whether they should require a customer to provide a deposit before they will turn on the lights.

Are the Cancellation Fees of the Electricity Plans Significant?
Expect any energy plan you enroll in to include an early cancellation fee (often referred to as an early termination fee). For residential customers, they normally don’t assess this fee if you are moving from your current address. You will need to check with the company for their specific policies. Cancellation fees are listed here on Vaultelectricity.com as well as in the plan’s EFL document.
