Switching your Texas electricity provider is easy. Understanding all the charges that go into your average rate can sometimes be like solving the Hodge conjecture, but we’ll take a stab in providing a little more clarity.
We get a lot of questions from customers wondering why their average rate changes from month to month. A few posts ago, we discussed specific delivery fees that are charged when buying your Texas electricity. While your per kWh fee is fixed, the answer is typically in a fixed delivery fee from your TDSP provider (companies like CenterPoint and ONCOR) that deliver electricity.
We’re picture people, so let’s look at the following example. In Houston, there is a fixed fee that every residential customer must pay each month and is about $8.52. If you were to use 1,000 kWh this would contribute $0.00852 towards your average rate.
Delivery Charge $8.52 / 1,000 kWh = $0.00852
Let’s look at what happens if you’re a large electricity user. At 2,000 kWh this would contribute $0.00426 towards your average rate. Changes in average electricity rates are derived by how much you use. So next time your look at your bill, remember that your average rate will change each month depending on usage.
Delivery Charge $8.52 / 2,000 kWh = $0.00426
