Choose TXU Energy for simple, straightforward savings on electricity. View Plans

When choosing an electricity provider, it’s tempting to go with the one that offers you the lowest price. But keep in mind – the lowest rate isn’t always the best deal. Many hidden factors can impact your bill and cost you more down the line.

AT TXU Energy, we think it’s important that you know these facts before you decide. Here are three tips that can help you find a genuinely cheap electricity plan:

  • Beware of Introductory or Variable Rate Plans. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. These cheap electricity plans offered by most other providers often have a low “introductory” or “promotional” rate for the first month. But after that, the rate can go up as much as the provider chooses – and you may not even realize it until you open your next bill. To see if the cheap electricity plan you’re considering is a variable rate plan, check the Electricity Facts Label (EFL). At TXU Energy, we don’t offer introductory or variable rate plans since they can be so unpredictable for consumers. With our fixed rate plans, you get guaranteed price protection on electricity rates and real peace of mind.

  • Take Advantage of Loyalty Rewards. Rather than just focusing on cheap electricity in Texas, find out if your provider offers money-saving rewards. TXU Energy offers plans with 3% cash back loyalty rewards on annual electricity purchases. That’s like getting paid for something you already do every day.

  • Use Money-Saving Tools. When comparing providers, make sure they offer money-saving tools that can help you save energy and lower your monthly bill. At TXU Energy, we provide the online tools, tips and information you need to reduce your energy usage and reduce your monthly bill. You can even log in to your TXU Energy MyEnergy DashboardSM to better understand how you use energy, and get personalized recommendations on saving energy with our TXU Personal Energy Advisor feature.

Once you've made the comparison, we're sure you'll discover why more Texans have chosen TXU Energy than any other electricity provider. See our electricity plans and rates.
