Why Ambit Energy Quotes Average (Bundled) Rates in Texas

Figuring electricity rates in Texas is fairly simple, but some companies can be misleading in how they go about quoting these rates. It's always best to find the average rate, also known as a bundled rate. The average rate is calculated using three things: 1. The energy charge rate, which is the rate your retail provider is charging per kilowatt hour (kWh). 2. The delivery charge, which is from the local delivery/utility company. 3. The estimated kWH usage. Calculating electricity rates in Texas using these three factors will give you the average rate so you can do a true apples-to-apples comparison.
