Average Energy Rates in Dallas

Dallas benefits from a deregulated energy market, offering residents the freedom to choose from competing Texas electricity providers, rather than being tied to a monopoly with high rates and poor customer service.

The average residential rate in Texas is about 14 cents/kWh. The national average is about 16 cents/kWh.

Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer

Oncor Electric Delivery serves as the transmission and distribution utility company (TDU) for the Dallas area. While you have the freedom to choose your electric service in Dallas, Oncor manages the Dallas electricity wires and lines and corrects power outages, ensuring service to your property.

Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer Service

If you’re relocating to or from Dallas, contact customer service for your current electricity provider to cancel your plan. If you’re moving out of the deregulated area, you can cancel your service without incurring an Early Termination Fee (ETF).  If your electricity provider also operates in your new city, you have the option to transfer your service.

Switching Electricity Providers

Should you decide to switch energy providers, you can enroll in a plan with a different provider in just minutes on Home Energy Club. However, be cautious of ETFs if you switch plans for your current home before your contract end date.

The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) associated with each plan explains the fee you’ll be charged if you cancel early. In some cases, switching to a plan with a much lower fixed rate might offset the early termination fee, but it’s crucial to do the math beforehand.

By waiting until 14 days before your current contract expires, you can avoid the fee. Additionally, you can often enroll in a plan weeks or months ahead of the start date to secure the advertised rate at that time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who has the cheapest energy rates in Dallas?

We have have the top three most trusted electric providers that currently offer the cheapest rates in Dallas:

    • Gexa Energy (855-639-8212): Bill credit, 60-day guarantee, and low rates
    • Frontier Utilities (855-782-8379): Bill credit and low fixed rates 
    • TriEagle Energy (888-380-4813): An affiliate of TXU Energy, offers low gimmick-free rates

What is a good rate per kWh in Dallas?

An electricity rate in the 12 to 13 cents per kWh average range is currently a good rate in Dallas. However, seasonal variations are normal and prices may drop below 10 cents in winter and and then rise again in summer.

Natural gas commodity prices are the biggest driver of electricity rates in Texas. Generally, now is a good time to consider enrolling for 24 or 36 months so that you can lock in fixed rates before natural gas prices significantly increase, which they are projected to do in the next 12 months. Recovering commodity prices will naturally result in higher power generation costs and increases in residential rates. 

Why is my Dallas energy bill so high?

You can reduce your chances of receiving high energy bills in Dallas with the vetting process and objective ratings and reviews at Home Energy Club. Tricky gimmick plans have already been eliminated before you do a side-by-side comparison of energy plans on the site. Unexpectedly high electricity bills also happen for other reasons, including: 

  • Your home’s electricity use is not a match with your energy plan. Many times, terrible bill surprises are the result of, for example, an apartment-dweller choosing a plan intended for large homes that use 2,000 kWh or more when the monthly usage for the apartment is actually more like 500 kWh. Be sure to review the Electricity Facts Label and read our guide to be sure your home’s level of energy usage matches the plan you select.
  • Your fixed-price plan has expired. If you are on a fixed price contract, action needs to be taken before its expiration to avoid an increase in the cost of electricity. Energy companies tend to automatically charge customers with expired plans their highest rates. The secret to avoiding this type of electricity bill surprise is to renew your plan or set up a switch to another one within 10 days before the expiration of your current plan.
  • The electric supplier has increased their rates. When you choose a variable rate plan, your rate can be increased without warning and at any time. Use caution when considering plans offering “wholesale prices” because such plans have non-fixed rates, which commonly leads to staggering electric bill spikes.
  • Other factors that can increase your energy costs include energy inefficiency in the home and three-digit feels-like temperatures in summer.

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.
