Deregulated Energy Market

Corpus Christi boasts a deregulated energy market, granting residents the freedom to select from various electricity providers in Texas instead of being limited to a single regional provider. Deregulation fosters healthy competition, empowering residents to tailor their energy choices to their specific household needs and budget constraints.

Average Corpus Christi Electricity Rates

The average residential energy rate in Texas is 14.19 ¢/kWh. The national average is 16.11 ¢/kWh, about 12% higher than the Texas average.

AEP’s Move-In, Move-Out, and Transfer

AEP functions as the transmission and distribution utility (TDU) for the Corpus Christi area. While you have the liberty to choose your preferred electricity provider, AEP takes care of Corpus Christi power outages and ensures the delivery of power to your property.

Residential Electricity Service in Corpus Christi

If you are planning a move to Corpus Christi, you can explore a range of residential electricity services available in your area, including options from Cirro Energy and Reliant Energy.

For assistance in finding a suitable residential electricity service, turn to Home Energy Club for comparisons of different electricity prices in your vicinity. Once you find a plan that fits your budget, you can ask AEP to commence electricity delivery on your chosen start date.

Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer Service

If you intend to relocate, you can reach out to your current electricity provider’s customer service line to discontinue your existing plan. Even if you have a long-term plan and are moving out of the area, you have the option to cancel your service without incurring an early termination fee.

In cases where your electricity provider serves your new location as well, you can transfer your service seamlessly. Before proceeding, use Home Energy Club to compare electric prices and secure the most affordable electric rate in your new zip code.

Switching Electricity Providers

Alternatively, you may opt to switch energy providers. In such instances, your new electricity company will assist you in transitioning from your old contract to the new one. However, if you decide to switch plans for your current home before your contract’s end date, be cautious about early termination fees (ETFs).

The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) associated with each plan provides details about the fee you may incur if you decide to cancel early. If you find a plan with significantly lower rates than what you are currently paying, it might be financially advantageous to pay the early termination fee and switch, but it is essential to calculate the potential savings first. Remember that waiting until 14 days before your current contract expires allows you to avoid the termination fee.

Moreover, you can typically enroll in a plan weeks or months before the start date to lock in the advertised rate.

For more valuable information about moving to Texas or switching providers, consult our Electricity Shopping Guide.

If you’re out of power in Corpus Christi, you can use the information below to take action.

Corpus Christi Electricity Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best electric companies in Corpus Christi?

HomeEnergyClub.com ranks companies and plans based on its HEC/Amazon surveys and TrustPlan™ process, independent review sites, government complaints statistics, and other objective sources. Currently, the site’s “Top 12 Best Electric Companies in Corpus Christi” list includes:

Honorable mention: Payless Power, the top brand for prepaid “no deposit” plans.

What is a good rate per kWh in Corpus Christi?

The best energy rates in Corpus Christi per kWh tumbled to as low as 5 cents and 6 cents on HomeEnergyClub.com because of a collapse in commodity prices, though seasonal changes are common and rates will increase as commodity prices bounce back. There may be no better time than now to consider locking in current low rates by enrolling in a 24-month, 36-month, or 60-month plan. As commodity prices recover, residential rates will rise due to the higher costs of power generation. The average amount paid for residential electricity in Texas in recent years has been about 11 cents/kWh.

Who is the best alternative in Corpus Christi to Power to Choose?

Special reduced pricing, owing to considerable bargaining power with providers, is one reason that HomeEnergyClub.com is a premier comparison site and the best alternative to Power to Choose. Equally valuable is the comparison site’s use of the TrustPlan™ process, which is a manual vetting process that eliminates energy plans with deceptive gimmicks that cause bill surprises.

No plans are vetted by Power to Choose, which is a government website that has no discernible quality control process. A high volume of customer complaints over the years has led to discussions among Texas state government leaders to shut the site down (see Houston Chronicle articles).

Who vets Corpus Christi electricity plans to eliminate gimmicks?

To prevent gimmicky electricity plans that cause bill surprises from being listed on HomeEnergyClub.com, we vet each energy plan manually. The TrustPlan™ process utilizes the extensive experience and analytics the company has acquired since its 2011 start.

While Home Energy Club recognizes that many factors besides gimmick plans can cause energy bill surprises (e.g., spikes in energy consumption during summer months), the site aims to reduce the chances of such shocks among Corpus Christi residents.

Why is my Corpus Christi energy bill so high?

Home Energy Club vets each energy plan to help you avoid unpleasant bill surprises caused by deceptive gimmick plans. However, there may be other reasons why you might experience an electricity bill shock:

  • Your fixed-price plan has expired: On or before the expiration date of your fixed-price energy plan, it is important to renew or switch your plan. Otherwise, you may learn firsthand how providers tend to move customers to their highest rates when plans expire.
  • The energy supplier has increased its rates: Energy companies can raise your rate at any time if you are on a variable-rate plan, which also applies to providers offering plans at “wholesale prices.”
  • Your energy use does not match the energy plan you chose: Dreadful bill surprises may arise when consumers sign up for plans that do not match their energy use. Review the Electricity Facts Label to ensure that you choose the correct plan based on the pattern of energy use in your home.

Aside from the above, other factors that can increase your energy costs are a home’s lack of energy efficiency and scorching summer temperatures.

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.
