Austin energy FAQs

  • While Austin itself doesn’t have deregulated energy, some of its neighboring cities do. For example, in Round Rock and other areas of Texas, you can find rates lower than 10 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh) at times of low demand. The lowest rates in Texas are usually offered by Gexa Energy, 4Change Energy, Express Energy, and Frontier Utilities.

  • If you’re in Austin proper, contact Austin Energy about your renewable energy options. If you’re in a deregulated city near Austin, you can use SaveOnEnergy’s marketplace to search for plans in your area, then select the “green energy” filter.

  • It depends on what you need from a provider. For instance, if you want the cheapest rates, you could consider Express Energy or Frontier Utilities. Alternatively, if sustainability is important to you, think about signing up with a provider like Gexa Energy or Green Mountain Energy.

  • Decreasing your energy consumption is the best way to lower your utility bill. There are many ways to do this, including investing in energy-efficient light bulbs, maintaining your HVAC system, and unplugging appliances and electronics when you aren’t using them. You can also switch electric companies to secure a lower rate.
