For those of us who live in Texas, we have many options when it comes to energy selection. The first and most important piece of advice I would share with you is that you need to research your options on the Texas Energy Companies website. It doesn’t matter what part of Texas you live in; this website covers all regions of the state. You’ll find that you have different options based on where you live. That’s a good thing, because the more options you have, the better decision you’ll be able to make.
One thing I learned from the website is that there are different ways to receive energy, and different types of plans you can select. With the monthly plan, your rates may fluctuate month-to-month based on how much energy you use. This might be a good plan for someone who doesn’t use very much energy, or maybe for someone who has a vacation home and is only very active a few months out of the year. I like the idea of paying for the energy that I use, and not paying when I don’t use it.
Some other people may prefer to pay a stable rate each month. I can see how this would be appealing as well. It doesn’t matter how much energy is use, you pay the same amount every month. I’m not sure how that dollar amount is calculated, but I’m guessing it’s based on your average energy usage. This might be appealing for someone who has really high spikes in their energy usage during certain months, and they don’t want to have to worry about an outrageously high bill during those months. It sounds like it equalizes the payments to make them more affordable. No matter which plan you choose, I would highly recommend being an educated consumer and finding as much information on this site as possible.
