Ambit Energy recently launched three new residential electricity plans in Texas. One is the Free & Clear Nights 12.
This new plan features 100% wind energy, so if renewable energy is important to you, this is definitely a plan to consider. The free nights plan is not yet (as of October 2017) available in all Texas delivery territories.
So, how do the free nights work? It’s pretty simple (be sure to scroll down to watch the video).
Basically, you are not charged for the energy rate or the local TDU (such as Oncor) delivery charges from the hours of 9:00 p.m. – 5:59 a.m. But you are charged during the hours of 6:00 a.m. – 8:59 p.m. All hours of usage, however, are 100% wind energy. The Free & Clear Nights 12 plan does require a smart meter.
The average rate per kWh based on kWh usage ranges as follows:
14.6 cents/kWh for usage around 500 kWh
13.1/kWh for usage around 1,000 kWh
12.3/kWh for usage around 2,000 kWh
Keep in mind these average rates are not different prices. They are simply showing what the average rate calculates out to be once you factor in any base charges, the energy charge rate and the delivery charges calculated at the three different kWh usage examples.
It is estimated that most Texas residential customers use 32 percent of their daily electricity at night (hours of 9:00 p.m. – 5:59 a.m.). However, if know that you use a significantly larger percentage of your electricity at night, then this plan is likely a great fit for you.
As displayed in the Electric Facts Label, which shows all the details and calculations for the Ambit Energy Free & Clear Nights 12 plan, this is a 12-month contract plan. However, with Ambit’s three new featured plans comes a 60-day guarantee. If you do not like the plan you select, you can switch to another plan at no cost within 60 days of your enrollment.
