Which Plans Have Cheap Electric Bills in Abilene?
If you want cheap electric bills in Abilene, now is the time to sign up for a fixed rate electricity plan. Electricity industry insiders call April a “shoulder month” because it falls between the typically higher prices in summer and winter. Picture rates on a line graph’s curve across the year. You can imagine the shoulders that appear on either side of seasonal peaks. If you lock in a fixed rate electricity plan now, you’ll save money on utility bills year round.
Average Bills Preview Your Future
With plans offering flat rates, bill credits, and tiered rates, it can be confusing to compare Abilene electricity prices. To make things easier, Texas Electricity Ratings provides an average bill for each plan based on consistent usage over the year. The plans below have the lowest average bill for customers who consistently use 1,000 kWh of electricity each month:
|Plan||Retail Electricity Provider||Average Price at 1,000 kWh||Average Bill at 1,000 kWh|
|You Got This 36||First Choice Power||7.4 cents||$74|
|Champ Silver-24||Champion||8.8 cents||$88|
|Clear Deal 12||TXU||8.9 cents||$88|
|Champ Saver-24||Champion||8.9 cents||$89|
|You Got This 24||First Choice Power||9.0 cents||$90|
Incredible Savings With First Choice Power
The You Got This 36 plan from First Choice Power offers a super low price on a 36-month contract. The pricing is straight-forward: a $4.95 base charge, 3.5 cents per kWh, and AEP North utility charges. If you want to get out of your 3-year contract early (but at these prices, why would you?), the early termination fee is a reasonable $135.
With the exception of the Clear Deal 12 plan, the other plans with the lowest bills also have simple pricing. The TXU plan suits customers with low normal electricity usage because the first 1,200 kWh have a lower price than subsequent usage.
Shop April Prices Forever
As your contract term nears completion, you should begin thinking about your next retail electricity contract. Fortunately, these providers give you a notice at least 30 days before your contract expires. If you do nothing, your retailer will continue to provide you electricity. However, they will switch you to a month-to-month plan that does not lock in your electricity price beyond one month.
Another huge benefit to shopping Texas electricity in April is that you can shop this month for years to come. When you commit to a 12-, 24- or 36-month term, you shop April prices no matter how many years are on your contract.
