Electricity Rates Laredo:

One of the first things that most people want to know when searching for a new provider is, “How much is this going to cost me?”

We will dig deeper into that, but before we start comparing rates in Laredo, there are a few things that you’ll need to consider in order to make the best decision.

kWh Price

Unfortunately, when buying an electricity plan, the final kilowatt price is not normally the bottom line price that you will pay.

This can be confusing, we know.

Let’s look at an example:

Kyle is moving to Laredo, Texas, and knows he will need an electricity plan. He’s very frugal and wants to make sure that he knows which company will provide him with the best electricity rates in Laredo.

He heard from a co-worker, Paul, that one particular company has hands-down the lowest kilowatt-hour rate in his zip code. He calls the company up and finds out that the price per kilowatt-hour is very low and signs a contract for a plan right away. He was quoted 8.94¢ per kWh.

Big mistake.

Kyle didn’t take into account that Paul has a family of four that his spouse homeschools during the day.

In the fine print of Kyle’s contract, which he did not read, there is a section about the minimum usage requirement of 1700 kWh per month.

Since Paul’s family is at home all day, using copious amounts of electricity, they hit that minimum every month with no problem. Kyle, on the other hand, is gone all day at work and also spends many of his weekend hours out of the home.

In the first month of his new plan, Kyle didn’t hit the minimum, and unfortunately, the fee increased substantially per kilowatt-hour.

So now he is paying much more than he budgeted for, even though he uses less electricity than a family does.

This is why it is important to do the research to find the best plan that meets your individual electricity needs.

Hidden Fees

The time-use charges are just one of many ways that you can encounter hidden fees or price changes on your next electricity bill.

Many contracts are riddled with other types of fees. This is a common marketing gimmick that companies use to make the rate look like it is the best one for your family.

Here are some of the common fees that you want to ask about before signing a contract:

  1. Cancellation fees. Most REPs will charge a fee if you need to cancel your contract for whatever reason.
  2. Connection fee. For some companies, you will be charged a fee when the company begins your service.
  3. Renewal charge. Depending on your type of plan and the current market, after your initial contract is over, you could be charged a higher rate on your next contract.

This is just an example of some of the common fees and is by no means all-inclusive.

We recommend that before you sign a contract for an electricity plan in Laredo, make sure to read all of the terms of service to try and understand what additional fees you could be charged.

Compare Electricity Rates Laredo:

In Laredo, there are dozens of types of plans that companies will offer.

Each type of electricity plan will offer different rates, and because of the endless number of plans, it is very hard to compare rates equally.

Think about it this way:

Sam just moved to Laredo and is comparing electricity rates for the provider that his best friend uses.

One plan offers free nights and weekends on electricity, and the rate starts at 10.2¢ per kilowatt-hour, but that rate can fluctuate.

Another one available from the same REP is a fixed-rate plan. It is only 9.1¢ per kilowatt-hour. However, this plan requires a minimum of 1800 kilowatts used per month, or the rate per kilowatt jumps up to 14.3¢.

Sam just graduated college, and this is the first time he is paying for his own electricity, so he has no idea if he will hit the minimum on the fixed-rate plan.

He is not home for multiple nights a week and will be traveling a lot for work. He is unsure if having free nights and weekends will even be a good deal for him or if he can even hit the minimum in the fixed-rate plan to get the lower price.

And this is just one REP of dozens available in Laredo.

What’s the Best Electricity Rate in Laredo?

Remember, the best electricity rate is going to be the one that fits you the best.

There are many different factors that go into finding what your electricity needs are.

Some of the factors include:

  • Age of your house
  • Size of your house
  • Your ZIP code
  • Your historical usage
  • The house’s historical usage
  • And more

The cheapest electricity rate is not often the best electricity rate in Laredo for you.

How to Choose Electric Company in Laredo

Now that you understand the factors that go into finding the best electricity plan for you, there are two methods that you can use to choose an electric company in Laredo, Texas.

Manually Search for Each Electric Company in Laredo

First, let’s look at it the hard way.

Think about this:

Luke just spent the last 3 days and his whole stash of coffee researching which electricity providers are available in his area.

Unfortunately, he has just started the search.

He is fairly technology proficient and decided to make a spreadsheet to try and compare all of the plans and electricity rates.

Five more hours into this project, and he only has a handful of plans loaded into his spreadsheet. In fact, they are all starting to run together.

Luke is now stressed, overwhelmed, and tired due to the fact he is severely undercaffeinated and has only made a small dent in his overall search.

One plan that he found gives him free weekends. Another one has month-to-month payments with no contract. Another even gives him a gift card when he signs up for a service.

How does he even know which company is going to be the best overall in the long run?

To kill the suspense, he won’t.

Searching manually could be a person’s full-time job. Even then, it still isn’t a guarantee to find the best plan because rates can change every 15 minutes.

Electric Companies in Laredo, Texas

There are literally dozens of electric companies in Laredo, Texas.

This is because Texas has deregulated electricity, so any retail electric provider located in Texas can service Laredo.

What’s the Best Electric Company in Laredo?

Every single person may have a different answer to this question.

The best electricity company for your family will be different than the best company for your neighbors or colleagues.

Every person or family has varying factors to be considered individually:

  • The size of their home
  • The age of their home
  • Historical electrical data
  • Their individual lifestyle
  • Their daily schedule
  • And others

No two homes and no two families use energy in the same way.

Simply finding the companies that are available in your zip code and looking for the plan with the lowest rate will not actually yield the best results.

This way will also eat up hours, if not days, of your time – and possibly not even end with the best plan.

Use Power Wizard’s Shopping Tool to take advantage of our 100% unbiased algorithm to search for you.

Some of the common types of plans that you will find are:

  • Free Nights and Weekends
  • Month-to-Month
  • Fixed-Rate

Make sure that you read all of the fine print and the plan details in the contract before signing.

Average Electric Bill In Laredo, TX

If you research this, some websites will tell you that the average bill for electricity in Laredo is around $147.

While this is a place to start when trying to budget for your electricity bill, know that this average varies greatly depending on your individual situation.

For example:

Bill lives in a 2 bedroom ranch, while the Parker family lives in a 2-story, 5 bedroom house in the same zip code in Laredo, TX.

The Parker family will probably use more electricity than Bill simply because their house has more square feet and will take more electricity to air-condition the two-story home over the ranch in the hot Texas summer.

And there are many more factors that would need to be taken into consideration, like:

  • Age of each home
  • Lifestyle
  • Historical Usage

Their electric bills are going to be very different even though they live within 10 minutes of each other.

Both of them could benefit from Power Wizard’s Shopping Tool to take advantage of our algorithm by finding the REP and plan that would best fit their unique energy needs.
