Dallas Electric Providers Offer Big Savings

If everything is bigger in Texas, then everything is a whole lot bigger in Dallas! Home of the world renowned Dallas Cowboys football team and known for its vibrant arts and cultural districts, the city's motto is, "Live large, think big." With a population approaching 1.2 million, the city is the third most populous city in the state as well as the eighth in the nation. Yes, everything is bigger in Dallas, except for maybe your electric bill. That's because when 1.2 million people say they want to see big, big savings on electricity, Dallas electric providers sit up and listen.

The city of Dallas is in a deregulated section of the state belonging to the Oncor Electric delivery service area. Dallas residents can choose to stay with TXU Energy, the affiliate retail electric provider for Oncor Electric, or choose from a number of competing Dallas electric providers, including Green Mountain Energy, First Choice Power, StarTex Power, Bounce Energy, Frontier Utilities, Reliant, 4Change Energy, TriEagle, Champion Energy Services, and Acacia Energy, to name but a few.

Residents can choose month-to-month plans with no contract and variable rates that rise and fall with the market, or long-term fixed rate contracts that lock in low rates for the period of one to three years. Switching is as simple as entering your zip code, selecting a provider and clicking "switch." There's no need to even contact your old provider; your new provider will gladly do it for you.

Dallas residents should shop around and choose wisely, as hungry Dallas electric providers will eagerly compete for your business, with a variety of different plans, discounts, rebates and rewards, and most importantly, low rates. In fact, Dallas residents enjoy some of the lowest electric rates in the state; about a penny per kilowatt-hour lower than the national average, thanks to deregulation and Dallas' big, big metropolitan population.

It's important to note, however, that whichever provider you decide to go with, Oncor Electric will still be responsible for delivering your electricity, as well as maintaining the wires, poles and infrastructure of the electrical system in your area, and they are the ones you should call to report a power outage. Your chosen retail provider will be responsible only for billing and customer service, and of course, providing you all of those nice perks and loyalty rewards. But remember to know the terms while shopping for Dallas electric provider.
