How to choose the best electricity plan in Texas

Selecting a Summer Energy plan without knowing your home’s energy usage can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars.

The #1 most important thing: Know your usage!

The key to avoid overpaying is knowing your expected usage and comparing monthly costs for each plan based on that usage amount.

With things like gasoline, the “price per gallon” you see on the sign is the price you pay no matter how many gallons you pump.

$3 per gallon. Pump 10 gallons, pay $30. Simple.

Electricity in Texas is not as simple as buying gasoline. The advertised “price per kWh” is based on a specific, exact monthly usage (usually 2000 kWh).

And, each plan has a different calculation for how your monthly bill is determined.

Your effective “price per kWh” can only be determined by calculating your monthly bill, then dividing that monthly bill by your usage.

Advertised “price per kWh” can be misleading because it’s based on a specific usage like 2000 kWh. It’s best to shop based on the total bill for your home’s expected usage.

How do you do that when the math is complicated, and every plan is a little different?

ComparePower has already done all this complicated math for you.

First, we help you determine your expected monthly kWh usage. Then we show you the plans and their total monthly cost for your usage.

Summer Energy residential plans

Summer Energy offers fixed-cost and standard energy plans to its customers. The company’s fixed-cost products offer a steady monthly rate no matter the customer’s usage. Summer Energy sets a limit on monthly energy usage in exchange for the fixed rate. If a customer exceeds the monthly usage limit, Summer Energy charges a fee that is included in the next month’s bill.

Standard energy plans offered through Summer Energy are available in three, six, nine, and 12-month plans. The company also offers a month-to-month energy plan for short-term residents. The month-to-month plan features a higher per kilowatt hour rate and base charge in exchange for flexibility. As the contract length increases, a customer receives a lower rate and base charge.

Switching providers? Energy rates on ComparePower can be customized to your specific historical power usage.

Moving? ComparePower helps you estimate your new home’s energy usage, ensuring you choose the best plan for your household.

Summer Energy commercial plans

Commercial customers must fill out the company’s online form or contact by phone to access plan information. Summer Energy’s customer service team uses a company’s size, past energy usage, and budget to determine plan options. A letter of authorization for Summer Energy to review a prospective client’s historical usage data is available on the Commercial Sign Up page.

To find the best commercial electricity rates, you need to compare prices from competing energy companies. ComparePower bridges the gap between your business and energy companies by inviting various energy providers to compete for your business in a sealed bid process.

Summer Energy customer service

Summer Energy encourages customers to contact the service line to resolve billing and account issues. The company does not handle service calls, which means customers should contact their utility provider. Summer Energy’s customer care center is open 8:00 am to 7:00 pm Central Monday through Friday and 9:00 am to 1:00 pm Central on Saturday.

Summer Energy also features separate emails for sales, customer service, and after-hours questions on its Contact page. Customers who want to reach out with less pressing issues can contact Summer Energy through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

 

Summer Energy payment 

Customers of Summer Energy have multiple payment options available after they receive their bills. The conventional methods of payment include returning paper bills by mail or calling the customer service line at 888-594-9299. Account holders can pay their bills using these methods by bank account or credit card.

Summer Energy’s website includes an Easy Pay link that simplifies the payment process. Easy Pay allows a customer to enter their account number and zip code. The resulting page allows for credit card or debit card payment, bypassing delays due to mail or being stuck on hold.

Summer Energy also partners with Ace Cash Express to facilitate in-person payments. At an Ace Cash Express location, a customer need only provide their account number and phone number to facilitate payment. Summer Energy notes that disconnection or reconnection payments should be made through the company rather than a third-party company.

 

Summer Energy reviews

Looking for ratings and reviews for Summer Energy?

Several companies rate electricity providers. ComparePower does not include customer reviews as they are generally biased or easy to manipulate and skew one way or the other (positive or negative).

Often, a review is requested a mere few days after enrolling in a new energy plan, which may not be an adequate amount of time for a customer to experience the product or service.

Many customers who take the time to leave feedback typically do so as an effort to resolve a problem and are using negative feedback as a forum to draw attention to their issue.

Customers who leave positive reviews are generally incentivized to do so and therefore tend to be biased.

So what are we left with?  There are a few long-standing customer review portals that attempt to remove bias. One of these is the Better Business Bureau and the other is the Public Utility Commision of Texas.

The Energy Professionals Association (TEPA) gave Summer Energy its Supplier of the Year award for 2017. TEPA named Summer Energy based on voting by energy brokers and consultants familiar with the company’s customer service reputation. The company was a finalist for the same award in 2016.
