Waxahachie Electricity Rates – How Are They Created?
Because of the way most Waxahachie, TX electricity plans are structured, you can never really know what your actual electricity rate will be from one billing cycle to the next until after you know the precise number of kWhs you use. Any plan that includes fixed monthly billing charge (and most do) along with per kWh fees will result in your all-in electricity rate being higher if you don’t usage as much electricity for the cycle. Your average rate will be lower if you use more power. This is the part of Texas electricity that confuses a lot of people.
Here is one example of a Waxahachie electricity plan that was recently on the market. This plan was marketed with an electricity rate of 8.1¢/kWh. But that is the real rate only if you use exactly 2000 kWh of electricity in a billing cycle. Your electricity rate would be 10.1¢/kWh if you used 1999kWh for the month.
Here’s how that happens. The plan’s EFL (electricity facts label) lists the following price structure.
- TDU Electric Delivery Charge = $3.42 per month
- TDU Electric Delivery Charge = 3.697 ¢ per kWh
- Energy Rate = 5.80 ¢ per kWh
- Base Charge = $7.95 per month
- Credit for Billing cycle for usage greater than 2000 kWh = $40 per month
The electricity rate for the plan at the three advertised usage levels are:
- 11.8¢/kWh @500 kWh
- 10.6¢/kWh @1000 kWh
- 8.1¢/kWh @2000 kWh
The huge drop off in the electricity rate at the 2000 level is due almost entirely to the $40 credit that kicks in at 2000 kWh of electricity usage for the month. If you fall just 1 kWh short, your bill along with your electricity rate jumps much higher.
