Why is my McAllen energy bill so high?

Home Energy Club vets each energy plan and removes those with tricky gimmicks as a way of helping you avoid nightmare bill surprises. Unexpectedly high energy bills can occur for various other reasons as well, such as the following:

  • Rates have been increased by the electric company. Your electricity rates can be increased by the energy company at any time when you choose a variable rate plan, and the same is true with plans offering “wholesale prices.” Non-fixed variable rate plans can lead to staggeringly high energy bills, especially if you enroll in plans from untrustworthy providers. 
  • Your energy use does not match your energy plan. It is not unusual for shocking bill surprises to be the result of choosing the wrong energy plan for your home’s energy usage. For example, when apartment-dwellers using 500 kWh (the average for apartments) signs onto an energy plan intended for large homes using 2,000 kWh or more, they typically receive very high light bills. But if you review the Electricity Facts Label and read our guide to ensure that your home’s level of energy usage is a good match with the energy plan you select, ugly bill surprises can usually be averted.
  • The fixed-price plan you chose has expired. Before your fixed price energy plan expires, it is important to act in order to avoid a huge spike in electricity costs. Energy providers commonly switch customers whose plans have expired to expensive rates. You can avoid this by renewing or switching to another plan within 10 days before your current plan expires. 
  • Other factors that can increase your energy costs include a home that lacks energy efficiency, and sharp increases in electricity usage caused by the relentless heat of Texas summers.
