What’s the best Frontier Utilities plan?

Frontier Utilities energy rates will vary depending on the plan type and contract length. Some popular Frontier Utilities plans are:

  • Beat the Heat 12 plan. With this plan, customers will receive the best value when they consume between 1,000 and 1,500 kilowatt hours (kWh) each month. This will earn them a $75 bill credit.
  • Frontier Max 12 plan. This plan is ideal for consumers who use a lot of energy each month. Customers will earn a $100 bill credit each month for using between 2,000 and 2,500 kWh.
  • Simple Power 12 plan. Customers who sign up for this plan will be charged a base fee of $58 each month. In exchange, these customers will receive free usage up to 500 kWh.

Which provider has the cheapest Texas electricity rates?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple answer to that question. Cheaper rates don’t necessarily translate to cheaper bills. For example, a provider may display an electric rate for of kWh, but your rate could change if you consume 1,500 kWh. There are also bill credits, usage tiers, time-of-use and many other factors that could impact your bill.
