Compare Electricity Prices in Midland
With a motto that says "Feel the energy," it only makes sense that Midland residents and businesses have the ability to compare electricity prices. Although Midland was founded as a stopping point between Fort Worth and El Paso on the Texas and Pacific Railroad, it has since grown a significant amount. In March 2013, Midland ranked 4th among the top nine fastest growing boomtowns, according to CNN, Money and Fortune Magazine. As the home to more than 111,000 residents, Midland also takes pride in its international airport and three professional sports teams.
In 2002, Texas legislators deregulated the transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) service areas. This separated the generation, supply and delivery of electricity. Now, whether you are a resident or business owner in the area, you can shop for Midland electricity rates that fit your needs. No matter what retail electric provider (REP) you choose, Oncor will still take care of your local power lines and poles.
You can choose from a variety of Midland electricity rates
Before you shop around for Midland electricity rates, it's important to understand your options. You cannot control Oncor's service fees, but you can compare competitive electricity supply prices and find a supply rate that works for you.
If you want to pay the market supply price of electricity, a variable-rate supply plan may be best for you. Variable supply rates can rise and fall as often as once per month, according to changes in the energy market. There are times when this supply rate may be low, but at other times, it might be higher. High supply prices are more likely to appear during summer heat waves when there's an increase in electricity demand.
If you want to avoid monthly supply rate changes, a fixed-rate electricity plan might suit you. With a fixed-rate electricity plan, your monthly supply rate will stay the same for the length of your term. This could make budgeting easier, as you'll always know the per kilowatt hour cost of your electricity.
No matter what type of electricity supply rates you might prefer, Just Energy in Midland has a competitive option to offer you. As one of the leading retail electricity and natural gas suppliers in North America, Just Energy offers alternative supply prices and supportive customer service.

If you've done any driving out on Interstate 20 recently, you've probably seen some large wind turbines. That's because Texas is a national leader in the wind energy industry, and is home to at least 43 manufacturing facilities. Wind energy is 100 percent renewable and free of greenhouse gases and pollutants. According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), wind energy provided 9% of Texas electricity production in 2014. This is the equivalent to powering 3.6 million homes in Texas. In addition, the wind energy industry directly supports Texan employment, providing more than 17,000 jobs.
