Calling all folks in Corpus Christi…Bounce Energy, a Texas energy company, has some great offers for you!  They offer low Texas electricity rates with unique plans sure to fit your electricity needs.  In addition, they provide superior customer service and customer rewards too.  Once you sign up with Bounce Energy, you’ll see why it’s the Texas electric provider for you.

Here are the energy plans Bounce Energy has for you:

Month-to-Month Plans

A month-to-month (or variable rate) plan has no required contract and the rate can increase or decrease depending on how the energy market fluctuates.  The advantage to this plan is your Texas electricity rate and your electricity bill will lower anytime the energy prices fall.  However, just as the Texas energy rates can fall, they can also increase too so you need to be mindful of where you’re rate is each month.  Here are the month-to-month plans for Bounce Energy:

  • Thrifty Saver Introduction – 7.0c.  This is a fantastically low, introductory rate offered as a welcome for choosing Bounce Energy.  There is no required contract and no termination fee. (Note: This plan is offered for one month.  After the first billing period, you are switched to the Standard Thrifty Saver Program, which has a low rate and the ability to earn valuable rewards.)
  • Smart Saver – 10.7c.  There is no termination fee or required contract. Also, there’s no limit to how much your rate can decrease but has a 10% cap on increases monthly for your protection.
  • Express Move – 11.6c.  For those who are moving within or to a city in Texas where you can choose your energy company, this plan is for you.  By signing up for this plan, you not only get a low rate but Bounce Energy will even handle some relocation tasks for you, like submitting a change of address form with the USPS, provide moving quotes, do-not-mail and do-not-call lists and ID theft protection.

Fixed rate plans

An alternative to a month-to-month plan is a fixed rate plan. A fixed rate plan requires you to sign a contract (the number of months is specified in the plan) which locks in one low rate that stays the same for the length of your contract. The benefit to this type of plan is you’re getting the same energy rate each month, which is useful for budgeting purposes. Plus, it protects you from the potential of increasing energy prices.  However, if electricity prices decrease, you are unable to switch to a lower rate until the end of your contract.  Here are the fixed rate plans for Bounce Energy:

  • Fantastic Fixed 6 – 10.5c.  This is a great short term plan that allows you to lock in a low constant rate for six months. Plus, you are able to start accumulating rewards for on-time bill payments.
  • Nifty 9 – 10.4c.  This plan is perfect for students or anyone else looking for a nine month contract.  You are locked into one low rate so you’ll have peace of mind knowing your bill won’t fluctuate.
  • Terrific 12 – 10.1c.  Lock in a super low rate for 12 months with this fixed rate plan.  Plus you can earn a $75 bill credit after you 12th month of on-time bill payments.
  • Amazing 18 – 10.3c.  With this plan you won’t need to worry about fluctuating energy prices for 18 months plus you can receive rewards such as bill credits, movie tickets and companion airfare tickets for on-time bill payments.
  • Tremendous 24 - 10.2c.  You can be worry-free about your electricity rate for the next two years with Tremendous 24. You’ll have one low rate for 24 months, and you’ll receive a FREE month of electricity after paying your bill on-time for 24 consecutive months.

Green Plans

Most Texas electricity companies, including Bounce Energy, now provide green energy, which is a more environmentally friendly option.  Signing up for a green energy plan means your energy is generated from clean and renewable (naturally replenished) sources like wind, hydro, biomass or solar instead of from the standard methods like oil, coal, natural gas or nuclear power plants.  Green plans are offered through special fixed or month-to-month options.  Here are the green plans for Bounce Energy:

  • Blue Sky Now Introductory – 7.0c.  Are you thinking about a green plan but just not sure? Then this is the plan for you. With no contract or termination fees, this plan gives you the ability to try it out at one extremely low rate but gives you the freedom to switch plans or providers at any time.
  • Smart Green – 10.9c.  This month-to-month plan allows you to power your home with 100% clean energy and has no term fees or contracts. Also, there’s no limit to how much your rate can decrease but includes a 10% cap on increases monthly.
  • Blue Sky Fixed 6 – 10.0c.  Looking to make the switch to Green energy?  Try this fixed energy plan and lock in a low rate for six months that is powered by 100% clean energy.
  • Blue Sky Fixed 12 – 10.4c.  Want to lighten your impact on the environment?  Then try this is 100% green plan that locks in a low rate for 12 months.

For all Bounce Energy plans, you can earn the following rewards for consecutive on-time bill payments:

  • 6 consecutive on-time bill payments – your choice of movie tickets OR free companion airfare
  • 12 consecutive on-time bill payments – $75 bill credit
  • 18 consecutive on-time bill payments – your choice of movie tickets OR a Starbucks gift card
  • 24 consecutive on-time bill payments – a FREE month of electricity
  • 30 consecutive on-time bill payments – you’ll be granted Platinum status where you receive a 3% discount on all future bills (when you pay on-time)
