My Electricity Plan Is About to Expire – What Should I Do?
Our recommendation is that you start looking around for a new plan as much as 60 days before your current contract ends. Usually, 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 switching providers and enrolling in that plan with a future start date. That allows you to lock in that great rate; even if the start date is a couple of months away.
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 at a higher rate. You will be transitioned to a monthly plan at a rate that is most likely higher than you before. Don’t find yourself suddenly paying more than you should be for the same electricity you were getting before.
When Electricity Rates Have Risen
Remember, Texas electricity rates change often. It’s very possible that you could find that electricity rates for every provider have moved higher and all of the rates being offered in by everyone are higher than your current contract. If this happens you can just wait and watch the market until the expiration date on your current plan gets is a little closer.
If electricity rates for the whole market have moved higher, however, your rate too will go higher once your current plan expires. In this case, it’s still better if you choose from the cheapest plan currently available. Otherwise, you could be paying even more once your current plan ends.
What Do I Need to Enroll in New Electricity Service?
Whether you are enrolling over the phone or online, there is some information you might want to have available to make your sign-up process go smoother.
Enrollment will require the full and correct service address as well as a billing address if your is bill going to be sent to a different address. For credit purposes, providers may also ask for your current or previous address.
You will need to provide either a driver’s license number or a social security number. The electric company will use this information to perform what is called a soft credit check. This won’t affect your credit score. It is used by electric companies to determine whether they will as for a deposit. If you are enrolling in a prepaid electricity plan, no credit check is required.
If a plan offers autopay, you may be asked to provide payment information when you enroll in the plan. Autopay is an optional feature for many plans, but some plans offer lower rates for consumers who opt for autopay.
Non-Electricity Guide to Montgomery Texas
Montgomery is a small city in Montgomery County. The population according to recent estimates is around 1,000 people in total. On the map, it is 19 miles from The Woodlands and 47 miles from Houston. The city was founded in 1837, and according to various sources, it got its name because of a Major in the U.S. Army was named Lemuel P. Montgomery; it was named in his honor.
Montgomery’s claim to fame comes in flag form. That is, supposedly, the Lone Star Flag was created by Charles B. Stewart, one of Montgomery’s early settlers. A letter that Edmund B. Stewart found, Charles’s son, seems to confirm this origin, but the jury is still out on its validity. Regardless, that is a very lofty claim to fame.
There are a few things to do in the city: Memory Park is a great place for scenic sights and outdoor activities, Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary should be high on everyone’s must-do list, and Lake Conroe is beautiful.
Construction is by far the most common occupation and industry in the city. General Business and Registered Nursing are the most common degrees obtained at the nearest university.
How Are Montgomery Electricity Rates Generated?
It surprises many to learn that even with a “fixed rate” electricity plan, your real world electricity rate is most likely going to vary every month. A lot of people assume that your electricity bill is determined by multiplying your electricity rate times the number of kilowatt hours you use each billing cycle. But in the real world of Montgomery electricity, that’s not how it works.
The electricity rates advertised in Texas are the result of an algorithm that is unique to each plan. These formulas can be simple or complex. They include all sorts of fees, rates, tiered levels, pass through fees, and bill credits.
The billing formula specific to your plan is applied at the end of each billing cycle to determine what your electricity bill will be. It is only after this that you will know what your real electricity rate for the month was. Ideally, it will be close to the rate that was advertised when you signed up for your plan. But depending on the plan it can be quite different.
When comparing electricity rates between different Montgomery electricity providers, you are comparing the electricity rate at one of three different hypothetical usage levels (500 kWh, 1000 kWh, and 2000 kWh).
Every electricity provider in Texas must provide this information in the discloser document (called the electricity facts label) for every plan they sell.
When comparing electricity rates on Vaultelectricity.com, make certain that you are looking at the usage level that is closest to what you expect to use on average each month.
