Why Compare Electricity Providers in Snyder
There are many factors that can differentiate one Snyder electricity provider from the next. Here are a few:
- Electricity Rate – For most people, this is the most important reason to compare electricity providers. Electricity rates in Texas change a lot. Even within the same electric company, rates fluctuate. The smart consumer will find a low rate plan from a trusted electricity company and lock in the rate with at least a 12 month contract.
- Term Length – Contract lengths vary from 3 to 36 months. The 12 month contract is the most common length and makes sense for most consumers. No contract or month-to-month plans are also available from most, if not all, electric providers. These tend to be at much higher rates than longer term contracts however.
- Green Energy – Most providers offer at least one plan that features 100% green energy. In Texas, this mostly means wind power.
- Credit Requirements – Different companies have different credit thresholds. If your credit history doesn’t meet this threshold, you may be asked to pay a deposit.
- Billing Options – Often you will get a better rate if you choose a plan that feature autopayment.
- Cancelation Fees – All energy plans with a specific term length such as 6 or 12 months will come with cancelation fees. These will differ from one provider to the next.
Tips for Comparing Electric Companies in Snyder
Electricity plans are not ‘one size fits all’. The first thing you should do when comparing Snyder electricity rates with our comparison tool is make sure that you are looking at the appropriate rates for the size of your home. There is a setting on our plan results list that allows you to select your home size to ensure you are looking at the right rates.
There are three benchmark monthly electricity usage levels that every Snyder electricity plan advertises rates for. They are:
- 2000 kWhs: This is a usage level commensurate with a larger home.
- 1000 kWhs: A good monthly estimate for a smaller house
- 500 kWhs: This is apartment sized usage
Electricity rates can vary widely between these levels even for the same plan. If you aren’t comparing the appropriate rates, you could end up choosing the wrong plan for your needs.
Renewable Energy Accounts for a Large Part of Snyder Electricity
Electricity in Snyder comes from all over the state. The Texas electric grid is the largest independent grid in the U.S. with Texas being the only state with its own electric grid not connected with the other main power grids in North America.
This independence means almost all electricity sold by Snyder, TX electric companies is produced within the state.
Thanks to a large investment in infrastructure over the past decade, the impressive amount of wind energy generated in the west Texas plains can be ported elsewhere in the state to meet demand. No other state has wind energy capacity that even approaches that of Texas.
About 10% of the power consumed in Texas comes from nuclear power. There is not likely to be any new nuclear power added to Texas in the near future. The economics just don’t favor nuclear power in Texas.
Despite the impressive gains in renewable energy sources made in Texas over the past 20 years, coal and natural gas still provide most electricity in Snyder and elsewhere in Texas. It is cheap natural gas that has helped Snyder maintain cheap electricity rates in recent years.
Why We Love Snyder, Texas
Our families have a long history in Snyder. We always love going to the Snyder County Fair and the July 4th Celebrtions. And we are always impressed to see that Snyder has two Dairy Queens in town!
As the county seat of Scurry County, Texas, the western Texas city of Snyder has a population of 11,300 and ranks 215th overall in population size. On the map, Snyder is next to the cities of Hermleigh, Lake Colorado City, Rotan, Roscoe, Westbrook, Loraine, and the nearest city with a population of 50,000 + is Abilene, which is about 71 miles from Snyder.
Historically, the city was founded by William Henry Snyder in 1878 because he needed a trading post for his wares. He was a buffalo hunter and merchant, so he thought it pressing to set up a stable spot for commercial transaction to occur. This soon attracted the attention of other traders who wanted to sell their wares and barter for goods. Two railroads would run through the area a few years later, marking opportunities for more expansion and economic growth. And then many years later oil was discovered in nearby Canyon Reef and the population of the city grew exponentially.
Speaking of oil, the economy is still largely driven by the industry: the SACROC oil field and the Cline Shale have supplied the economy with a promise for future growth and an expanding market which will trickle down to other enterprises as well. In addition to oil, alternative energy is a big industry: more specifically, wind is a driving force in the economy. And a couple of industrial parks are in the Snyder area as well.
