Apartment electricity costs
What does electricity cost for an apartment in Texas?
The energy usage of apartments is less than that of a typical house, so it is best to choose an ideal plan for lower energy usage.
Based on an average Texas electricity price of 13.15 cents/kWh, we’ve estimated how much electricity could cost for a typical studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, or three-bedroom apartment.
Studio or small one-bedroom apartment ~ $37.68 to $62.80
A studio or a small 1-bedroom apartment uses anywhere from 300 to 500 kWh per month. Multiplying this figure by the average rate means you will pay $37.68 for 300kWh and $62.80 for 500kWh of monthly usage.
Large one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment ~ $125.60
Typical usage for a larger 1-bedroom or a 2-bedroom apartment is around 1,000 kWh per month. Multiplying this usage with the average rate will cost $125.60
Three-bedroom or larger apartment ~ $188.4 to $251.20
An apartment with three bedrooms typically uses 1500 to 2,000 kWh per month or more. If we multiply the usage by the average rate, it will cost between $188.4 for 1500kWh to $251.20 for 2000kWh of monthly energy usage.

Did you know over 60 electric retail providers are competing for your business?
Your new apartment complex might recommend a single preferred electricity provider. Apartment complexes have agreements with Texas energy providers to keep the power between residents.
When a resident moves out and discontinues service, the agreement allows for the automatic transfer of electric service into the management company’s name, ensuring units are ready for showing to potential new residents.
Agreements between electric retailers and apartment complexes do not preclude residents from choosing any electricity provider in the state as their preferred provider.
ComparePower lets you shop the rates of multiple providers to make the best choice for your household needs.
With so many electricity companies and plans, how do you know which plan is the right one for your apartment?
Know your usage for the best rate.
The prices and energy costs of electricity plans in Texas can vary based on your monthly usage, so knowing and shopping by how much energy you use each month will help you determine the best price point for your home.

If you are already in a contract with an electric supplier, make sure to review the terms and pay close attention to the expiration date to ensure there are not any penalties associated with terminating your contract early. Contact your electricity provider if you are uncertain.

The switch only takes minutes, and you could realize savings in the first month.
No matter whom you buy your power from, the reliability and quality of your service will not change.
Your utility company will still operate the power lines that run down your street and into your home. The Public Utility Commission of Texas will still regulate the rates for the delivery portion of your service.
Only companies that the Public Utility Commission of Texas licenses are allowed to sell electricity to consumers.
If you’re switching providers, look at your electricity bill or log into your online account manager to obtain monthly electricity usage for the past year.

A fixed-rate energy plan provides stability, especially on a budget. An additional benefit of a fixed rate is protection from extreme weather temperatures.
