Get to know energy choice in Laredo

The city of Laredo, Texas sits a couple hours south of San Antonio, on the Mexican border. This means Laredo enjoys an eclectic mix of languages and cultures. Walk the streets of Laredo and engage in a veritable history lesson, complete with structures and museums steeped in rich stories of the 261-year-old city. Founded in 1755, the city’s population of over 260,000 has plenty to enjoy.

Like most communities in Texas, Laredo has a deregulated energy market, meaning residents have the power to choose their electricity provider. Your one-stop roadmap to the right energy plan, Atlas will help match your usage and needs to the right plan, at no cost to you.

How Atlas compares Laredo electric plans

Energy plans in Texas can be complicated. Providers display electricity rates at three levels, based on the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) you use. The problem? No one uses energy at exact levels, and going over or under could cost you.

Before you opt into any Texas energy provider plan, consider these pitfalls:

  • Every day, electricity prices in Texas change. Some energy plans are protected from these changes, but many are not. That can be risky when you consider that the average Texan used 1,664 kWh in August 2019.
  • During the hottest points of the summer, the average Texas electricity bill, based on the figure from August 2019, was $196, but in April, the average bill cost was $95.
  • Some Texas energy plans will charge you more for using 999 kWh than for using 1,000 kWh.

These issues can make finding the right plan overwhelming. Atlas will use the information you give us about your needs to make sure you’re avoiding these problems and only considering plans that will work in many situations. When you sign up for an account, we can let you know if we find a better rate and help you switch.
