Tips for comparing electric companies in Texas

Texas is a large state with many different electricity providers. Comparing rates and plans between these providers is not easy, so how do you know which one to go with? The most important thing to look at when choosing an electric company in Texas is the price/kWh rate. This tells you how much the company charges per kilowatt hour of energy consumed. With this knowledge, you can compare rates and plans across all providers in Texas.
