Tips for Shopping for The Best Electricity Plan in Terrell
The pricing formula for some electricity plans is straight forward and uncomplicated. These plans are the exception though. The typical electricity plan has a complicated pricing formula that determines your average electricity rate. Plans can be priced with a mixture of flat fees, usage based charges, and bill credits that may fluctuate depending on usage level. Many plans also feature bill credits that appear when you use above a certain amount of electricity but go away when you use an even higher amount.
This mashup of fees and charges can result in an average electricity rate within a single plan that is substantially different at 500 kWh of monthly electricity usage than it is at 2000 kWh of monthly electricity usage.

If you live in a larger home, you should be comparing rates based on 2000 kWh of average electricity usage – not 1000 kWh or 500 kWh.
If you live in an apartment or small townhome you must ensure you are comparing based on the 500 kWh average electricity rates. If you are looking at the 2000 kWh average electricity rates, you may not be happy when you get your first electricity bill and find you are paying a much higher rate than you expected.
My Electricity Plan Is Ending – What Is My Next Step?
When the term of your current plan is about to expire, your electricity provider will probably email you or call you with an offer for a new deal to replace your current plan when it expires. This new plan may have a better or worse rate depending on the state of the electricity market at that time.
Before you commit to anything you should compare their offer to the rates on other plans being offered by other Terrell electricity providers. Chances are you can find a better rate with another provider. If you do find a better rate somewhere else, you can enroll in a new plan with a future start date; as much as 2 months in some cases. When the date arrives, your new provider will handle the switch. There is no need to contact your current provider.
About Terrell, Texas
Located within Kaufman County, the city of Terrell, Texas is the 147th largest city in the state with a population of about 17,800 people. On the map it lies in the northeastern part of Texas next to the cities of Union Valley, Mesquite, Kaufman, Forney, Oak Ridge, Elmo, Talty, Garland, and Dallas is only about 30 miles away.
Historically, and like most Texas townships, Terrell was established as a railroad town. This happened around the year 1873, and the town got its name from a settler of European roots named Robert Terrell. The city was later incorporated in the year 1875, and much later, the city is known for its Terrell Military College, which was placed on the original location of Robert Terrell’s farm.
When considering the economy of Terrell today, it boasts a small unemployment rate, and future job growth is going to be higher than the rest of the country (according to projections). But, the wages earned are below average in the city. The most common occupations for the workforce are in Manufacturing, Retail, Healthcare (which is the largest industry), and Food Services are big.
For educational attainment, the most popular college in the area is Southwestern Christian College where students usually major in Biblical Studies.
Electricity Plans Have EFLs – Are They Important?
You should never settle on a Texas electricity plan without first looking at the EFL. It’s a lot easier to hide gimmicks in marketing language than it is to conceal them in the EFL. The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) is the document that every Terrell electricity provider must to provide with every plan they sell.
The document shows you exactly what fees and costs are included in a plan. If, for example, your plan has a bill credit that disappears as soon as you exceed 2000 kWh for the month, you will see it in the EFL. You will see what fees are being passed through on your bill for the regional electricity delivery utilities called TDUs.
You will also see what percentage of the electricity included in your plan comes from renewable energy sources, what the cancelation fee is and what the contract term is.
If you are getting a “Free Nights” plan or any other “time of use” plan it will show you exactly what rates you pay for what time of day or what day of the week.
EFLs for each plan can be found with the plan listing on Vaultelectricity.com
