With almost 200 variable rate plans offered across Texas – from both big and small providers – there’s a good chance you may be on one.
When our competitors started selling variable rate plans about three years ago, TXU Energy made the decision not to offer them and set about warning consumers about the risks and uncertainty you might experience.
Beware. Rate hikes more than quadrupled!
Now we’re warning you to seriously watch out – many are finding that their variable rate prices are shooting up after the first, second or third bill with several providers. Some have increased by up to 200% – and customers may not even realize it. Be sure you look closely at the rate on your bill.
As the #1 electricity provider in Texas, and a company who doesn’t believe in selling variable rate plans, we felt an obligation to find out what’s been happening to people on those plans. Many of them were shocked to see their super-low electricity rate skyrocket after a few bills. Who knows what your next month's bill will be?
Check your bill once your contract has ended too.
Are you on a term plan with your current provider? Do you know when your term ends? Many term plan customers aren’t aware that their contract expired and they’ve been rolled to a variable rate plan, which means their provider can change their price any time they want.
Hundreds of thousands of Texans don't fully realize the unpredictable impact of being rolled to a variable rate plan after their contract expires. Don’t let this happen to you.
Get off the rate roller coaster.
Avoid the potential wild ride of "Vari-A-Bull" plans and get the security of a low locked-in rate with TXU Energy so you know what to expect every month. That's especially important during the hot summer months when you typically use more electricity, and a variable rate increase can mean significantly higher bills.
