The price per kilowatt hour (kWh) tends to be a bit higher for Fixed Rate products than with Variable Rate products because Fixed Rate products guarantee your rate won’t go up during your contract term. Cheap Electricity Variable Rate plans tend to be lower than Fixed Rate plans and do not require you to sign a contract. Variable Rates are based upon the prevailing wholesale market rates and can fluctuate.
Residents have claimed in recent months that they have received bills that are significantly higher than they have previously paid from the city's Utilities Department. The city earlier this year rolled out not only a new method for calculating those utility bills — going off the amount of water used as opposed to a winter average-based formula — and a new software system for compiling and issuing bills.
It’s all about choice, and never more than in this city. The ability to choose a company with the same social viewpoint as you, and the ability to choose an electricity rate that fits in with your budget. If you’re looking for a company that’s dedicated to increasing its use of renewables, you’ll find that on the list. If bargain hunting is more your style, you’ll find that, too.

Corpus Christi electricity rates were deregulated in 2002, when state legislation created a system in which the utilities, also known as transmission and distribution service providers (TDSPs,) and retail electric providers (Compare Energy Companies) work together to give you energy choices. Deregulation gives you the opportunity to compare electricity prices from Compare Energy Companies, which have to compete with one another for business.
Fixed-Rate Plans: These plans are steady and predictable; the price per kWh you sign up for will remain that same for the entirety of your contract. (The only changes in your bill will be from forces outside of your Gas And Electric control, like changes in TDU fees, or changes in federal, state, or local laws.) Often fixed-rate plans will have a slightly higher price per kWh than others, but you're paying for the predictability. They're great if you live by your budget – and even greater if you happen to sign up when rates are low. The fixed-rate plans of our five Texas providers typically started at 12 months, with some extending up to three years, but we spotted a couple from Switch Energy that offered fixed rates for six month contracts as well.
Depending on your answers to these questions, you may want to consider switching electric companies. Here at Cheap Electricity, we feature competitive fixed rates with flexible contract lengths, and we offer no-deposit electricity.‡ Even if you’re looking for an electric company in Skidmore, Mont Belvieu, or another town near Corpus Christi, we can get your power turned on today.1
