Electricity Facts Label

View Document

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.

What is this price chart?

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.

Why does the rate in the chart change based on usage?

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Renewable energy sources and other energy sources feed into the same power grid, so there's no way to choose the exact source of the energy delivered to your home. However, electricity suppliers like Direct Energy can contribute to renewable energy initiatives by purchasing Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). RECs represent proof that one megawatt-hour (MWh) - or 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) - of electricity was generated from an eligible renewable energy source. Both state governments and the federal government regulate these sources. When you enroll with our green plan, you're contributing to the funding of renewable energy initiatives for the entire power grid!

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.
