What to Do If Your Electricity Plan Is About to End
If you haven’t looked around for a better deal in a while, in a while there is a good chance you are currently not in a contract. If that is the case, most likely, you are paying way more than you should be paying for electricity. Providers will move customers to month to month plans once their previous plan expires without a new on in place. These monthly rates are almost always more expensive than what you would pay if you were in a contract – sometimes by a large margin.
If you are under a contract right now, you should begin looking at rates on other plans as early as 60 days before the contract term ends. Most electric companies will allow you to select a start date that is up to 60 in advance. This allows you to lock a great rate if you find one well in advance of the expiration of your current plan.
If for whatever reason you let the contract end without finding a new contract you need to shop for a plan with a better rate than you are paying. There is a very good change you can find one. Your current provider might have a plan that offers a better rate than you are currently paying. But most likely, you will find the cheapest rate by switching to a new provider who is eager to win your business.
How Does Princeton Electricity Obtain Its Power
Many sources of power contribute to the electricity grid that serves Princeton. The Texas electricity grid is separate and apart from the rest of the mainland United States electricity infrastructure.
Most of the electric energy produced in Texas comes from natural gas. Coal has historically also been an important source of fuel for Texas power plants. However, the contribution of coal to the Texas electricity grid has been on the decline for a number of years because of environmental and economic reasons.
Renewable energy resources in Princeton continue to grow. Texas has more wind power than any other state in the U.S. Wind generated electricity can now account for more of the power in the grid than any other single source on mild windy days in Texas. This makes Texas an unlikely leader in green energy production.
Most electric companies in Princeton, TX now offer at least one 100% renewable energy electricity plan. As the price of both wind power and solar power continues to fall, the rates on these energy plans can are quite competitive. On occasion, you will find green energy plans that are cheaper than plans that feature electricity generated from traditional sources.

What’s important is finding who has the best electricity rates today in your area. When you know that, you can pick a plan that fits your needs and lock in a contract with the best rate available.
When your contract term is up, it’s likely that someone else will have a better rate than the renewal rate being offered by your current provider.
