About Texpo Energy Electricity Plans in Texas

When you shop the Honest Gorilla marketplace, you will see a variety of fixed-rate energy plans of varying term lengths. It is important that, when you are looking to choose an energy plan for your home, you choose the plan that is right for your household, lifestyle and budget.

Texpo’s Savings AutoPay E-Plan

The Texpo Savings AutoPay E-Plan is a fixed rate plan that comes in a variety of contract terms, ranging from 12, 24 and 36 month options. This plan is being offered particularly for its added incentive when you authorize monthly payments of your invoices via automatic recurring withdrawals from your bank account(s) or charges to your credit card (“AutoPay”). This discount is already figured into the price. However, if you elect to pay your invoice by any method other than an approved AutoPay method, then you will be subject to an additional charge of 0.5¢/kWh, referred to as the “Payment Processing Fee.”

The price disclosure for the Texpo Savings AutoPay E-Plan is based on:

  • a fixed base energy charge,
  • plus all charges from your Transmission and Distribution Service Provider (“TDSP”) and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (“ERCOT”) (collectively, “Delivery Charges”),
  • a $9.95 Minimum Usage Fee (Texpo will not charge the Minimum Usage Fee for each billing cycle in which you use at least 1,000 kWhs),
  • and Public Utility Commission of Texas (“PUCT”) fees and assessments.

If you’re curious to know whether or not you will be charged the $9.95 Minimum Usage Fee for any given month, be sure to sign up for a free account at Smart Meter Texas. You can see in almost real-time how much electricity you’ve used in any given billing cycle so that you can manage your usage accordingly.
