As electricity costs continue to rise for Texans, many have been looking for ways to make all of their hard earn dollars count. One way many have done so is by making the switch to a solar electrical system.

Consumers all across the state have felt the sting of skyrocketing electrical bills. These rises are caused by spikes in demand for U.S. natural gas- indicating the growing importance of transitioning to alternative energy sources.

As solar energy grows in prevalence, it’s become one of the most common ways Texans have chosen to cut their electrical costs, as well as increase their energy independence and environmental efficiency.

Are you looking to find the best energy supplier to help you make the switch to clean energy? This guide will help you determine how to find the provider for you.

What to Look For In Houston Electricity Companies

When it comes to choosing your electrical supplier, knowledge is power!

In order to make the best use of your money, you’ll want to do some research on the providers available to you in your area. A well-informed decision will ensure that you’re not only saving money, but also actually helping the environment.

Here are the qualities you should look for in your electrical service provider:

1. Affordability

Of course, these days the question of price is at the front of mind for most.

Some natural gas electricity providers in Houston have more than doubled their prices- meaning the swap to a renewable energy source with a fixed-rate plan could not only help decrease your energy use’s impact on the planet, but your wallet as well.

Chariot Energy offers a variety of competitive, 100% renewable energy plans for Texans to choose from. While prices for gas in parts of Texas have reached as high as 25.4 cents per kilowatt hour, Chariot’s plans are locked at around 20-22.9 cents per kilowatt hour.

2. Convenience and Accessibility

Of course, it is preferable to avoid piling on extra costs with external equipment and installations.

Switching to a green electricity plan doesn’t necessarily mean cashing out on bulky equipment to install on your roof like solar panels or wind turbines! Chariot provides clean energy to your home through a centralized grid.

We manufacture and provide the electricity directly to your home- no panels required! This means that people living in apartments, town houses, or rentals can also now access renewable energy.

3. Great Customer Service

Nothing is worse than having issues with your electricity, or worse, being without it entirely, and being left on hold for hours on end.

Another important factor in your choice should be the customer service offered by the provider. Chariot Energy offers you top of the line customer service, making them the best choice on the market. 

4. A Fixed-Rate Plan

The price of natural gas fluctuates, as of recently exploding in price. This leaves consumers uncertain of what the future may bring for their finances. If you are looking to remove some of that uncertainty from your budgeting, a fixed plan is what you’ll want to look for.

All of Chariot Energy’s plans come at a fixed rate, with a variety of different perks to each plan to best suit your needs. This way, you can rest assured that your energy costs will stay the same one month as the next.

Whether your concern is price or energy efficiency, there is a plan for you. Looking for something shorter-term? There is a 12 month plan available as well.

Factors to Consider in Picking an Electricity Plan

These days, there are more options for energy independence than ever. Between all of the different packages and companies on the market, knowing which way to turn can become overwhelming.

It is crucial to make sure that you choose not only the best provider for your needs, but also the best plan.

The first step will be assessing your energy consumption. Once you figure out how much electricity you regularly use in your home, you can choose a plan that will work best for your usage, budget, and needs.

Additionally, you’ll want to assess the type of energy the appliances in your house use. For example, do you have a gas stove top or boiler? Knowing what kind of energy your house needs will be important to picking the best plan.

You will also need to consider things like existing or future electrical loads (e.g., lighting, additional appliances), building structure codes, and fire safety regulations.

Once this is established, you can make an informed decision on what plan to choose. Chariot Energy offers a variety of plans to choose from, and offer a variety of fixed-rate plans lower than any of the competition.

After you’ve taken the steps to get a plan that fits your financial situation and energy use, you should also invest in making your house itself more energy efficient, if possible.

If you own your house and can make renovations, weatherizing or otherwise insulating your home can make a big difference. If you rent, simply switching to LED light bulbs, sealing windows, and replacing filters can also help to lower your bill.
