History: Corpus Christi was founded in 1838 as a frontier trading post by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney, an adventurer and colonizer. The settlement was originally called Kinney’s Trading Post, or Kinney’s Ranch, and remained a trading post until the July of 1845. The trading post then became a campground for the U.S. troops under General Zachary Taylor who was preparing for the war with Mexico. In 1925, the Port of Corpus Christi opened after over sixty years on efforts to obtain a deep-water port. This port later became the sixth-largest U.S. port along with the deepest inshore port on the Gulf of Mexico.

Why is my Corpus Christi energy bill so high?

Home Energy Club vets each energy plan to help you avoid unpleasant bill surprises caused by deceptive gimmick plans. There are other reasons, however, that you could experience an electricity bill shock:

  • Expiration of a fixed-price plan. On or before the expiration date of your fixed price energy plan, it is important to renew or switch your energy plan. Otherwise, you may learn first-hand how energy providers tend to move customers to their highest rates when plans expire.
  • The energy supplier has increased their rates. Energy companies can raise your rate at any time if you are on a variable rate plan, which also applies to providers offering plans at “wholesale prices”.
  • Your energy use does not match the energy plan you chose. A common reason for dreadful bill surprises is when consumers sign up for a plan that does not match their home’s energy usage. Review the Electricity Facts Label (read the guideto ensure that you choose the correct energy plan based on the pattern of energy use in your home.
  • Other factors that can increase your energy costs include a home’s lack of energy efficiency and scorching summer temperatures.

Is Reliant Truly Free Nights and Weekends (or days) worth it?

A Reliant energy plan with free nighttime use of electricity may be a good option for you, though it depends on your pattern of electricity usage in your Corpus Christi home. What catches Texas residents by surprise is that the cost per kWh is exceptionally high for the hours when energy is not free. If you use most of your electricity when it is free and perform high-consumption activities such as running your dishwasher during free hours, a time of use plan such as free nights and weekends may be a good choice for you.
