Allen electric companies

Every resident of Allen has the power to choose which retail electricity provider (REP) that he or she prefers to use. Because Allen residents have this control, they can research which electricity rates in Texas are best for their budget. And, if they find lower rates with another company, they can switch – though they could face early termination fees for leaving their current contract.

Deregulation gives REPs the ability to compete for a consumer’s business by offering low Allen electric rates. Examples of the top Allen providers include TXU Energy, Gexa Energy, and 4Change Energy.

Even though residents can control their choices regarding which REP they would like to use, it is not possible to change the utility company. The utility company is in charge of delivering power to residential homes, and also manages power line maintenance and outages. For Allen residents, that utility company is Oncor.

Allen residents who experience a power outage should contact Oncor by calling 1-888-313-4747 or find outage information by going here.

Types of plans in Allen

  • Fixed-rate plans: These plans are optimal for customers who want predictable rates. Fixed-rate plans lock in pricing for the electricity supply portion of the bill, so the rates will not change no matter how the market fluctuates at a given time. Additional taxes and fees may apply, however.
  • Variable-rate plans: Customers who don’t mind changing rates might be right for a variable-rate plan. This allows users to take advantage of electricity price drops. Of course, this also means electricity rates may surge, depending on the market.The most significant factor in a variable-rate plan is that, As the energy market fluctuates, the consumer will see increases or decreases in their electric rate.
  • No-deposit plans: Many providers offer prepaid plans that allow consumers to avoid paying a deposit. With a prepaid plan, you will pay an upfront monthly fee and then receive regular updates on your electricity usage. When your account’s balance runs low, you can add more money.

Confused about deregulation?

Energy consumers in Allen have the freedom to choose their energy provider from a pool of candidates, which was not always the case.
