An Electricity Facts Label (EFL) is required by the Public Utility Commission of Texas as a means of providing the details of electricity plans sold in the state. On an EFL, you'll find the term length, electricity price, whether there is an early termination fee, the rate type and other vital plan information.
On each plan's EFL, you will see a chart that lists the average price for usage of 500, 1,000 and 2,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of usage. The best way to use this chart is to compare your average usage from previous bills to the amounts listed in the chart.
The average rates inside the chart include your energy charge, charges from your local Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) to cover the cost of delivering electricity to your home and charges to cover the cost of providing service. The prices listed inside the chart account for both per-kWh charges and fixed monthly charges, which means the more you use, the less your average rate will be.
The Public Utility Commission enforces several rules to protect Texas electricity customers, which are outlined in Your Rights as a Customer (YRAC). This document details the rights you have as an electricity customer with any provider in Texas.
The Terms of Service outlines the full terms of a contract agreement with Direct Energy. It gives more detailed information on billing, payment, plan options and other considerations. The terms of service document is the same for all plans of the same rate type with Direct Energy. In other words, you'll see one document for all fixed-rate plans and another for all variable-rate plans.
When you sign up for Give Brighter Miracles, Direct Energy will donate $50 to a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital near you. CMN Hospitals rely on donations and community support, since insurance programs do not always fully cover the cost of care. Your donation will fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and other medical care. Hear the positive impact first-hand from some of the Miracle Kids at https://childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/the-children/.
CMN Hospitals will distribute your donations to your local member children's hospital based on your zip code, helping the kids and families in your local community. Donations will be collected from enrollments in the Give Brighter Miracles plan from December 4, 2018 to December 31, 2019 and distributed to the CMN Hospitals in January 2020.
The donation will be made on your behalf by Direct Energy to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, who will distribute the donation to your local member hospital. Donations are not eligible for individual tax deductions by consumers.
This plan is a fixed-rate plan. Fixed-rate plans offer a stable energy price that will stay the same for the term length of your plan, protecting you from possible price spikes.
The rate includes your energy price per kilowatt-hour (kWh), which stays the same for the length of your plan contract. The rate also includes charges that help deliver energy to your home, such as the base charge and delivery charges from your Transmission and Distribution Utility. Some of these charges are fixed and others depend on your usage. You can find your energy price per kWh and other charges in your EFL.
When you enroll on a fixed-rate plan, your energy charge listed underneath the Electricity Facts Label chart stays the same for the term length of the plan.
The TDU charges can change, so that component of the total price may not always remain the same.
When you sign up for an electricity plan, you'll be able to choose the day you start service. You will usually be able to start service within seven business days.
You can sign up by clicking the "Select Plan" button above. If you're moving to a new address, just use the address of your new home to fill out your service address information. If you're switching from another electricity provider, we'll them know about your switch.
