Renewable Energy Provides Some of the Sachse Electricity
Wind power has grown faster than any other source of electricity in Sachse for many years. Government subsidies have led to growing investment in wind turbines. The geography of West Texas makes it the perfect location for placing wind farms. The state of Texas invested a great deal of money in building out the infrastructure to transport this electricity from west Texas to Sachse and other parts of the state that need the power.
Solar energy has historically been a minor contributor in the Texas electricity market. Despite having the largest capacity to support solar energy in the country, relatively little investment has been made in large scale solar projects in Texas.
But this is changing quickly. The manufacturing costs of solar cells have gone down while efficiency has steadily improved. Between 2011 and 2016 the amount of solar capacity in Texas increased by a factor of 10. This growth rate will only accelerate going forward.
Tips for Comparing Electric Companies in Sachse
One of the complicating factors when it comes to comparing electricity rates in Sachse is that the way plans are priced can be complex to say the least. When you combine monthly flat fees with per kWh usage fees, usage credits and penalties based on usage levels, you end up with a plan whose average rate changes substantially depending on how much power is used in a given month.
The discloser documents required by the PUC for all electricity plans sold in Texas show the average electricity rates based on a home that uses 500 kWh per month in electricity, or 1000 kWh or 2000 kWh. Every plan has three published average rates.
It’s very common for a provider to structure a plan to have the most attractive rate at a particular usage level while anyone who enrolls in the plan but uses less or more electricity than that may have a much higher average rate.
If you live in a home that uses something like 1000 kWh per month for electricity on average, you should compare plans using the 1000 kWh rates, not the 2000 kWh rates.

The city itself resides within Collin and Dallas counties and thus lies in the northeastern section of the state. It is near the cities of Garland, Rowlett, St. Paul, Dallas, Parker, and Richardson. And because of its geographical location, there is plenty to do in Sachse. Some of the attractions with the general environs are the Dallas Arboretum, Breckenridge Park in nearby Richardson, Hawaiian Falls in Garland, and the Woodcreek Brewing Company in Rockwall.
Historically, the city was founded around the year 1845 when William Sachse emigrated from Prussia and settled the land which would take his namesake. William Sachse was responsible for building the first cotton gins around the city. The city primarily functioned as a depot for the local railroad.

Electricity Plan EFL – What Is It?
The Electricity Fact Label (EFL) is a document that the Texas PUC requires for any electricity plan offered for sale in the Texas retail market. It shows consumers the average electricity rate for the plan at three target levels: 500 kWh, 1000 kWh, and 2000 kWh. The levels give an idea of rates for 3 different size homes. If you see a big swing in rates between these three levels within the same plan, it might be a warning that your electricity rate with this plan could be unpredictable unless you can manage your electricity usage down to the kWh (which no one can).
Underneath the 500, 1000, & 2000 kWh rates in the EFL document you will find a listing of the per kWh fees along with any flat fees that go into calculating the average electricity rate being advertised for this plan. The more pricing components this plan has, the less predictable your energy bill is going to be each month.
Don’t worry about the TDU pass through fees. This is a standard feature of all electricity plans sold in Texas. These fees pay for the transmission of electricity to your home as well as funding the maintenance of powerlines in the region. Everyone pays the same rates for this. Usually they are listed separately in the EFL.
