Texas Tesla Owners - Charging Costs

Interested in what others in Texas do to keep their charging costs low.

I've looked at free nights plans, but for now have a fixed rate plan with the same price per kWh all day. My wife and I both work from home and didn't want to pay the higher price during the day. What type of electricity plan are you on? And what provider do you recommend?

Free nights pairs well with solar.

most often your best bet is to find the cheapest fixed rate plan, and switching providers each contract term.

Cheapest fixed rate plan is simplest. I always charge at night anyway just to be nicer to the apparently fragile grid. Switch plans every contract period keeps the price down. I always specify 100% renewable just to shut up the fossil fuel mouths that want to yap about the coal burning used for my electricity.

MP2 Energy has a good plan. About 11.3 cents/kWh
