Compare electricity plans in Santa Fe, Texas
In the mid-1970s, when a neighboring city known as “Hitchcock” attempted to annex a portion of eastern Alta Loma, a counter-proposal created the current city of Santa Fe. Now, Santa Fe has grown to be twice the size of Hitchcock and is one of the more affluent areas in Galveston County. Santa Fe is home to 12,347 residents, over half of whom make $60,000 or more a year.
The median age in Santa Fe is 40 years old, and 24.52% of the population is under 18, 31.79% between 18 and 44, and 43.69% over the age of 45. The average Santa Fe household makes $84,135 a year. Most people in Santa Fe—76.8%, in fact—own their own homes, with another 604 rental units in the city.
Finding the right Santa Fe retail electric provider
When looking for the right Santa Fe electric company, of course you'll want to compare electricity rates. As you do so, you should also think about how you use energy in your own household.
The average annual energy bill in Texas totals $1,801 per household. While this number is about 26% higher than the national average, it's quite similar to what residents of other warm weather states pay.
As for how that $1,801 breaks down, you typically spend: $324 for air conditioning, $342 for water heating, $396 for space heating, and $738 for everything else, including appliances, electronic devices, and lighting. Since this is an average for all Texas households, your individual results may vary.
Average temperature in Santa Fe, Texas
The average temperature in Santa Fe is 69.7°F annually, with an average high temperature of 91.4°F in July and an average low temperature of 42.8°F in January. With such mild winters, residents pay roughly one-third the home heating costs that their fellow Texans pay their providers. Though it is almost five times more likely to see a hurricane than the rest of the United States, and three and a half times more likely to see a tornado, on the whole, Santa Fe sees mainly clear skies and sunshine. There is an average of 176 days of sunshine, compared to just 96 days of rain. But when it rains, it really rains, to the tune of 42 inches per year.
Fixed-rate plans from your Santa Fe retail electric supplier
What do electricity bills in Santa Fe include?

What rate plans can I set up for my Santa Fe provider? StarTex Power, named the top ranked Most Trusted Texas retail electric provider from Cogent Reports, offers both variable plans and fixed-rate plans.
