My name is David Lee. I’m a senior consultant with Ambit Energy. I’ve been hearing a lot about TXU’s free nights, free weekends, free mornings or free lunch plans that they have going on now. I want to take a look to show you how to dive into the details of stuff like this.
Go into TXU website, I did a zip code search for a zip code in North Texas, here’s a plan of TXU Energy free nights 24, what do you want to do when you’re looking at stuff like this? We’ll dive into here to show you why this is not such a great deal.
We’re going to expand the details and pricing, we’re going to look for the Electricity Facts Label, that’s going to open up a PDF to show us the details of that, here’s the actual plan, this plan was updated and posted on January 21st, we’re only looking at a couple of things.
You can see free nights, nights for them is from 9 p.m. through 5:59 a.m. each day, it is good, it’s a nine-hour window, you’re not being charged for electricity service during that window, you are outside of that window, you can rest assured that even though you’re getting free nights, you are getting a hefty charge when it’s not nighttime.
We always want to look for the average price or the average rate per kilowatt hour, you’ll see that up here in this area the average price for kilowatt hour for this plan, it is a good idea to use the one thousand kilowatt hour estimated usage because it’s a good base for most people throughout the year.
Obviously in Texas during the summer a lot of people use a lot more than a thousand, in the wintertime they might use less than a thousand, but it’s always a good base to do an apples-to-apples comparison of an average rate at about a thousand kilowatt hours.
Even at a thousand kilowatt hours, the average rate is still coming out to twelve point seven cents per kilowatt hour, by comparison Ambit Energy’s rate in the exact same zip code no gimmicky little plans is still coming out to be about nine point four cents per kilowatt hour average rate.
That includes the encore delivery territory in this zip code in North Texas that we’re looking for, doing that apples to apples comparison even with TXU’s free nights, they’re nine hours of free electricity, Ambit’s rates still come out to be a little more than three cents per kilowatt hour cheaper.
If you’re using a thousand kilowatt hours, three cents times a thousand is thirty dollars, thirty dollars in one billing cycle is still cheaper than TXU free nights, when you’re looking for things like this, always compare the average rate even with free window they’re giving you.
Always look for that, definitely don’t get fooled, I hope that this helped you out to understand that a little better, if you want to read up on some more tips about how to look at rates and how to compare them, definitely visit my web site, that’s joinambitiousenergy.com.
