Fixed Rate Plans for Apartment Electricity

Need electricity for your apartment and know you’ll be staying for a while? Our fixed rate electricity plans work best when you know exactly how long you’ll be in the apartment. You can choose a 6 or 12 month fixed rate energy plan depending on your lease. By selecting a fixed rate plan you receive guaranteed lowest electricity rates, and perks such as free electricity. You still have access to your energy usage and updates so you can gauge where you are, but it will allow you peace of mind and you never have to worry about remembering to re-up your account, or a zero balance creating a lapse in your electricity.

What Is the Average Electricity Bill for Apartments in Texas?

Smart meter data is not publicly available in Texas, which means there are no official numbers on the electricity consumption of apartments. However, leading apartment electric company, Payless Power, has shared the average electricity usage of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments in Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth.

The following table shows the monthly kilowatt-hour (kWh) consumption reported by Payless Power for apartments, and the corresponding power bill with a rate of 11 cents/kWh.

Type of Texas ApartmentArea in Sq FtConsumption in kWh1 Month Bill
1 Bedroom750750$82.50
2 Bedrooms1000880$96.80

The average electric bill for a 1 bedroom apartment in Texas is in the range of $80- $85 per month. Some users mention electricity bills under 500 kWh with less air conditioning, while careless usage can easily lead to power bills above 1,000 kWh.

The average electric bill for a 2 bedroom apartment is around $96.80 monthly according to Payless Power. Excessive use of the air conditioner can take you to around 2,000 kWh per month.

Apartment electricity rates change often as the seasons change, so you’re best bet is to cut back on electricity usage whenever possible.

Helpful Tips for Roommates Splitting Apartment Electricity

For those of you with roommates, we have also put together some tips for sharing apartment electricity bills:

Identify what you are looking for in an apartment electricity company.

Together, sit and list out any must have items and priorities:

  1. Specify your length of your stay in the apartment. Did you sign a 6 month, 12 month or longer lease?
  2. Determine your budget. How much money do you have for apartment utilities. Will you be splitting bills with your roommate?
  3. Write down any other relevant details prior to beginning your apartment electricity search. Can you get rid of any items that use too much power?

Creating this list before you proceed will help you visualize which items are the most important in your plan and in your apartment energy provider. Does it make more sense to opt in to a fixed rate plan or a prepaid electricity plan? Will you split the bill monthly or will you contribute the same amount of money to the account each time you recharge the balance? This is one of the first decisions you will make together as roommates – be sure to start off on the right foot!

Next, register for the best energy plan for your apartment.

Once you choose a light company or find the cheapest energy rate near you , it is time to get same day power! If you opted for a fixed rate plan, decide how to split any money down. If you opted for a prepaid plan, simply contribute the same amount to keep things fair as you get started. Quick Electricity is one of the best energy companies for apartments. We allow you to buy electricity online and offer account access and usage data with a simple login.

Finally, discuss your apartment electricity usage often.

With our apartment electricity plans you will receive daily updates on the energy you are using. You can see if certain items or utilities need to be scaled back and can gauge if the energy use is within your budget. By communicating with each other you will be sure there are no surprises and no payment shortages that could cause sudden lapses in electricity, or disagreements between roommates.

In a deregulated electricity environment, the options can seem overwhelming, but Quick Electricity is here to help you save money and provide you the best service possible. It won’t take much research to find the perfect plan and provider for your apartment electricity plan, and options are a good thing! They give you more power as the buyer.
