Here’s all you need to know about Ambit Energy, their rates, energy plans, and pricing.

Ambit Energy offers a wide range of electricity plans.
The following are two types of energy plans all Ambit Energy customers can choose from:
Fixed-Rate Plans: Fixed-rate plans let you pay the same amount throughout your electric plan. The plan length can be for 6, 12, or 24-months. We recommend fixed-rate plans because they minimize risk and provide price certainty. But be careful: when your term expires, your rate becomes variable and can go up without notice. Arbor automatically keeps you on the best fixed-rate plan, so you don’t have to worry about rate hikes at the end of your term.
Variable-Rate Plans: These plans are dependent on the retail energy market prices and can vary daily or monthly. Variable-rate plans are not as stable as fixed-rate plans and can prove expensive in the long term.
Green Energy Plans: Ambit offers a variety of green energy plans to Ambit customers in all coverage areas. These plans feature renewable energy which is better for the environment. However, the plans are usually more expensive.
Some plans may ask you for a deposit. However, plans available through Arbor never require a deposit.
You can find most of the plan information on the energy company’s website. However, it’s best to always read the plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL) which contains additional information on each plan, including the following:
Price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) depending on energy usage
Early termination fees
Percentage of renewable energy sourcing
You can switch to different energy plans without any hassle. Other charges on your electricity bill include your local TDSP or TDU charges. TDU (utility company) charges, as shown on energy bills, include the cost of delivering electricity, maintaining power lines, and handling power outages.
Ambit Energy offers various features and incentives, including the following:
Free energy program incentives for referrals
Competitive rates for new customers
Widespread hurricane relief efforts
Special featured plans for customers in Texas

The Texas energy market is massive and has several electricity providers. Choosing any single energy provider depends on what energy plans and rates are available.
All electric providers offer various energy plans with different rates, and it can be hard to choose any single plan. You can search and try to shop for rates yourself, but watch out for the fine print, hidden fees, and escalating rates once your term ends.
You can use Arbor’s free TrueRate Protection service to automatically find and switch to the best electricity rates in your area.
Arbor scans the market and gives you the best rates you can get in your service area. When your contract term is expiring, Arbor finds the best rate and switches you again. You always pay the best rate and never have to worry about overpaying for electricity ever again.
You can also use the free savings calculator to find out how much you could save in each case.
