What does AC do to your Texas electric bill on an average summer month?

Not really that bad.
150 bucks for 2500 sq ft
Winter is 60 bucks.
About 10 cents a kWH

EDIT just looked for August. Got up to 175 this year as the highest.

Not to harp on elections but this is why I’m afraid to see Texas turn to California.

1,100 square foot house
Winter about $100
Summer $387

And yet I currently have an electric co-op.
It's a shit show when they deregulated Houston. Much higher prices. Terrible service. All money is made on marketing and scamming. You can take advantage of it though by changing companies every 6 months to keep using introductory pricing...basically getting discounts on them overcharging everyone else.

Also Texas has some of the highest electricity prices in the country (for the type of electric and transmission equivalent) and its highest in the deregulated markets.


Cali cost isn't just due to your hippies (thats some of it). Some of its also just a popular place with high cost of living due to that simple supply and demand. People are willing to pay to be there.

Likewise, not all of Texas cheap electric is our doing. We are 15% higher than equivalent states.

Our hospitals are holding admitted patients in the ER because we don't have empty beds to place them.

Some up to 19 hours. So actual ER patients are just hanging out in the lobby waiting to be seen.

And this is why people should be wearing masks, but no some fucking idiots just won't.
