Can you really get free electricity in Texas? YES, you can.
By now you’ve noticed that most Texas electric companies are offering free power to get your business. Free weekends, free nights, free Sundays… these are all good offers. But is the electricity really free? The answer: Yes and No. Depending on the electric plan you choose, “Free Electricity” can mean cash back, bill credits or a discounted electric bill. Some utility companies offer a lower electric rate and that “free day” is taken off the monthly bill. Some offer a higher rate and the “free electric” means reducing that rate. Right now, Direct Energy has a great deal for us all- FREE POWER WEEKENDS. With this plan, enjoy free power from Friday 6 PM to Sunday at 11:59 PM for an entire year. That’s real energy savings!

Does Free Electricity mean a cheaper electric rate?
Free Electricity promotions in Texas can be confusing. Always check the electric company’s EFL or Electricity Facts Label to find hidden fees. Make sure you’re aware of not only your energy rate, but also the TDU delivery charge. This is a charge that most people don’t notice until the monthly bill comes. Here’s a quick example of how to read the EFL and make sure that you’re getting the best electric rate and not just a gimmick.
Jane lives in Dallas, Texas. She wants a 12 month electricity plan and is interested in getting free power. She chooses the Direct Energy Power of 100 plan, but first checks the EFL. She finds this in the “small print”.
The electricity rate for this plan in Dallas is 8.1¢/ 2,000 kWh
The EFL for this plan shows:
Energy Charge: 8.8¢ per kWh – Monday 12:00 am thru Friday until 5:59 pm & 0.0¢ per kWh – Designated Free Period
*Oncor Electric Delivery Delivery Charges: $5.25 per month 3.067¢ per kWh
The TDU or “Oncor Electric Delivery Charges” is what people miss, making the monthly bill seem higher than expected. ALWAYS check the delivery charge and add it to the advertised rate.
8.8 + 3.067= 11.867
The ACTUAL electric rate for the “Power of 100” plan in Dallas is 11.867¢ per kWh, not 8.1 as advertised. Misleading? Maybe, BUT don’t forget, you’re getting 100 days free! This equates to weekends free which actually makes this a pretty good deal for some.
Jane from Dallas chooses this Direct Energy deal, and is smart for checking the EFL. Be vigilant and if the free energy offer seems to good to be true, just read the fine print.
