Free Nights & Solar Days 12 (8 pm) Reviews & Rates | Order Online

Free Nights & Solar Days 12 (8 pm) is a 12 month fixed rate electricity plan from TXU Energy with rates from 17.0 to 21.7 cents per kWh.

While expensive, this plan would be good for people that are highly disciplined in their energy usage, and/or an electric vehicle. What I meant by highly disciplined is folks who would program thermostats to head and cool their home, varying by season, to take place during the night and then shut off during the day. Or folks who will run their dishes and washing machines after 8 p.m. It takes discipline for people to really squeeze the value out of a plan like this, becuase the energy charges, when they are in effect, are very high. So to get the value, a customer has to be very time conscious about when they use most of their household energy. This is also a good plan for the environmentally conscious, becuase 100% of the energy comes from renewable resources.

The Monthly Recurring Charge is 9.95, and the Early Termination Fee is 150.

Our Review

TXU's Free Nights & Solar Days 12 plan is one of an increasingly popular kind of Texas electricity plan we call Time of Use. In this instances, the energy in a household is "free" for a certain window of time, usually at night, and customers pay a higher energy charge during the rest of the time. This is a good plan for folks who, say, drive an electric vehicle and schedule their charging to happen in the middle of the night, or for technical people who will heat or cool their home during the night and raise their thermostat during the daytime hours. That being said, even by Time of Use standards, this plan is still very expensive with an exremely high energy charge during the non-free time windows. It's also one of the TXU plans with a very high monthly base charge of $9.95.
