Why is my Richardson energy bill so high?

Avoid high energy bills with gimmicky pricing and surprise fees by using’s side-by-side comparisons of vetted plans. Other common causes for high energy bills include:

  • Rate increases: Variable rate plans allow energy providers to increase rates. Choosing a fixed plan with locked rates can help prevent unexpected increases.
  • Expired plans: Fixed-rate plans have expiration dates, leading to a price increase if you don’t renew before the contract ends.
  • Changes in demand: Energy costs on variable plans can increase during the summer and winter when electricity demand is highest.
  • Inefficient housing: If your home has inadequate insulation, electricity prices may increase. Keep costs low by replacing old insulation or adding sealants to doors and windows.
  • Energy usage: If you have a plan that is designed for more or less electricity usage than you use, your bill may be higher than necessary. Select an energy plan that suits your home size and electricity usage to avoid paying unnecessary high rates.

You should always read a plan’s EFL details to decide if it’s a fit for you, but our system does the tedious math to help you compare estimated costs. Of course, your future bill amounts will depend on your future usage.

You will find a widget on Home Energy Club which fetches your home’s energy usage data from Smart Meter Texas (SMT) and runs calculations of the rate structures of energy plans to help you conveniently estimate the cost of energy plans you are considering, based on your prior 12 months of energy usage as reported by SMT.

In one of the text panels of the widget, you will see an authorization button. By checking the permission box above the fields in which you enter your name and email address, and clicking on the authorization button, you are authorizing Smart Meter Texas to provide us with your location’s energy usage information so that our system can run cost calculations. It’s important to note that errors can occur when developing and running calculations, and the Company does not guarantee that its cost numbers are correct. You should always read the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) for each energy plan you are considering before enrolling, and make an independent decision on whether the plan is an appropriate fit for your home based on your own calculations and all the information disclosed by energy providers in the EFL.
