What Factors Determine the Overall Stafford Electricity Rate?
All Stafford electricity providers are free to build their energy plans and price their electricity rates however they choose. You will not often see plans offered that have an all-in bundled rate that is the same for every kWh of electricity you use. The typical Texas electricity plan consists of a combination of fixed fees, per kWh fees, bill credits, and electric delivery pass-through fees.
On top of this, some plans such as free nights plans have time-of-day rates. There are also tiered rates that change based on the amount of electricity you use.
This all means that, for the most part, Stafford electricity rates are not preset. There is a formula that is applied to your bill each month to determine how much you will pay. Once the formula is applied the total dollar amount of your bill is known. With the amount of your bill known, you can know what your average electricity rate for the month was. But only after your bill is calculated.
The way electricity providers advertise specific electric rates is by determining what the average electricity rate would be based on three hypothetical levels of electricity usage. These levels are
- 500 kWh – the rough amount of electricity that might be used by a Stafford apartment
- 1000 kWh – small house
- 2000 kWh – larger house
These three usage levels become the bases for comparison among different electricity providers and plans. But your actual electricity rate any given month will be different than any of these three rates.
Stafford, Texas – Did You Know?
This city, which stretches from Fort Bend County to a little bit of Harris County, has a population of 18,300. This population size ranks Stafford as the 144th largest city in the state of Texas. And when looking at the demographics of the city, it is a very diverse constituency: 30% African American, 23% Asian, 22% Hispanic, and about 22% Caucasian.
On the map it lies in the southeastern portion of the state, next to the cities of Fifth Street, Missouri City, Houston, Mission Bend, Four Corners, Bellaire, Sugar Land, and Meadows Place. Because of this location there is a considerable amount of things to do and places to visit: some of these include Constellation Field in nearby Sugar Land, the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land, Oyster Creek Park, and consider spending the day in downtown Houston.
The Stafford economy is driven largely by Tyco, a USPS site, and various retail establishments. It used to be centered around agriculture, and until recently Texas Instruments was a big supplier of jobs for the Stafford workforce, but the site shut down and the resources were sent to different locations. Currently, the most common jobs are in Retail, Manufacturing, Science, Education, and Healthcare positions.

How do the Electricity Providers Differentiate Themselves?
When it comes to price, which is the most important thing to most people, the answer is yes. Electricity rates in Stafford, TX can run a wide range of prices depending on who you have as your electric company. From this standpoint, there is an important distinction between electricity providers.
When it comes to receiving your electricity and the reliability of service, however, there is no difference from one provider to the next. As a matter of fact, the same utility company is responsible for delivering electricity to everyone in Stafford regardless of the electricity provider you select. You will not notice the difference between one electric provider and the next until your bill arrives.
Other than price, there are a handful of differences between electricity providers. Some have higher credit requirements than others. Some offer prepaid service. Others are exclusively postpaid which is the more traditional model where you pay your bill after receiving your electricity.
Prepaid electricity works a little like a prepaid cell plan or debit card. You pay for your power beforehand. The cost of any power you use is deducted from your existing balance.
Most providers offer paperless billing and autopay options. Most of them prefer to do as much as possible online. This helps keep their costs down and allows them to offer lower rates.
