Apartment Electricity Rates in Texas – Cheapest, Trusted

If you live in an apartment or condo that requires you to line up your own electricity, we make it simple for you. We have cheap electric companies for apartments.

On Home Energy Club, you can compare electric companies for apartments (also called light companies) to find the best energy companies for apartments with plans designed for your energy usage needs.

On our home page, enter your zip and you’ll find usage level selections of 500, 1000 and 2000 kWh above the plan panels. Select “500 kWh” and then review the plans and rates displayed. A usage level of 500 kWh per month is most closely associated with apartments/condos. Some plans have much lower energy rates quoted for 500 kWh than others, so it’s important to choose the right plan for your place.

Also, on the plan panels, click on the Plan Details link to view the estimated monthly bill amount and other information, and be sure to review the Electricity Facts Label sheet for disclosures about any plan you are considering.

Below are plans from the most trusted energy providers. Click on the plan name, enter your zip code for rates in your area, and check the plan’s rates for 500 kWh to find cheap electricity for apartments.

No-Worry Energy Shopping

Finding the right apartment electricity rate isn’t the only factor you need to consider when enrolling in a plan. Sometimes those rates come with strings attached that end in a big surprise on your next billing statement. Our customers have told us they want to avoid problems such as gimmick energy plans that offer low rates based on narrow ranges of monthly energy use. Rates skyrocket if you fall outside the range, which is easy to do with the big changes in Texas weather.

We help you avoid gimmick plans and bill surprises by vetting all plans displayed on our site. Not only that, but in many cases, we also offer rates on our site that are less expensive than rates you’ll find from the same providers on their sites. We do this by using our bargaining power with major brands to secure their best apartment electricity prices in Texas.

Know Your Usage

As we mentioned above, our site enables you to see the rates for various levels of usage on our home page and in Plan Details. When trying to find cheap energy for apartments, you will need to know how much energy you typically use. The easiest way is to check Smart Meter Texas, but otherwise you can check your apartment electricity usage at Smart Meter Texas, but otherwise you can check your energy bills and see how many kWh you use at different times during the year. Searching by usage gives you the power to choose the best rate for your needs.

Select a Provider

In Texas, you can find several different term-length options for your apartment electricity. These options include fixed-term plans that keep the rate the same for the term of the contract, and variable rate plans which change month to month. We highly recommend fixed-rate plans over variable rate plans because they result in more predictable bills and are much less likely to cause a billing surprise. We only work with reputable, name-brand providers. Our goal is to save you money and keep you from receiving a big surprise on your apartment electricity bill.

Green Energy Options

We know that protecting our environment is important. Texas set renewable energy goals that the state has far surpassed. The state now produces more wind energy than most countries. You’ll find many energy options on our site that are 100% green energy sourced, and you can filter your search to show only those plans that include 100% green energy. This is one of the ways we address climate change, renewable energy and organic lifestyles.

Terms and Fees

We have already discussed kWh usage, price per usage level, and green energy options. The other factor listed here is the term. This is the length of the contract you will agree to when you sign up for a plan. Notice that there are different terms available from energy providers.

If you live in an apartment with a six-month lease, you will likely want to enroll in an energy plan with a term of six months or perhaps month-to-month. To review a wider range of plans for terms of under one year, it’s a good idea to call the electric company operators at the phone numbers displayed on the rate tables.

It’s important that you check the cancellation fee that will be charged if you end your contract before the term is over. These fees vary widely, so be careful to check the Plan Details section of the plan you select on our site. Most fees will be waived if you move. This is one more way to avoid a big surprise on your electric bill!

It’s easy to see that anyone can use our site to start saving on energy bills. Our goal is to help you select the best plan for your lifestyle and budget and get the best electricity rates in Texas. And we vet each plan to help you avoid billing surprises, which especially sets us apart from other comparison sites.

It’s also important for you to know that our company was born and bred in Texas. We live and work here, just like you do. We hope that you will visit Home Energy Club today and find out how we can help you save on energy and cut billing surprises.

On Home Energy Club, our cost calculator widget helps you to choose an energy plan by performing detailed calculations so you can quickly compare estimated plan costs based on your historic usage data and publicly-available data. Your actual future bill amounts will depend on your future energy usage, which cannot be precisely determined, so the accuracy of plan cost data cannot be guaranteed. You should always read the details of an energy plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to decide if it’s a fit for your home.

By using the widget, you are certifying that you are the person whose name you have entered into the website and have authorization to access usage data for the address you entered.
