It is really not worth it for most people to compare variable electric rates against each other from several different companies because there is no guarantee from one provider to another on how that rate will change from month to month.
One variable rate may go down on the 2nd month while another goes up and you will have no way to guess on which electricity company will be the one that raises their rate and which will choose to lower it.
It is true that most variable rate prices in Dallas TX follow an energy commodity market and or spot market price.
Even those variable electricity rates that follow a market may also follow the whim of the electricity company.
Somewhere in the terms of service of your Dallas TX electricity rate agreement will allow the provider to change your cheap electricity rate into as expensive of a price as they decide to do.
For instance, if an electricity supplier gets in a bind because they did not forecast electricity prices accurately when buying and hedging their energy they can honor the rate for all their fixed contract customers because they have to but for all their variable rate customers they can jack up the price.
Since variable electricity rate customers are not promised price assurance or predictability even though your rate may look good for several months the provider always has you in their back pocket if they ever need to recover some losses.
These electricity companies in Dallas will simply raise your variable price high enough so that they recoup any losses due to mistakes they made in how they bought energy or how they fore-casted demand for their product in their specific model.
