Why Compare Electricity Rates?
We tend to get used to the “status quo”. We are busy and have other important things to do during our day. Most people simply think of their energy plan as a “set and forget” plan, which is a dangerous thing to do!
Electricity companies are there to make a profit, and they will use different methods to charge you more. They use difficult-to-understand pricing tiers and terminology that is now known to the average consumer.
Without using an energy comparison service like SlashPlan you may not be aware of all discounts you can take advantage of, or the hidden fees that will mysteriously show up on your bill.
Still not sure why? Let me show you a common scenario:
Assuming you narrowed down your search to 2 energy companies (Company A & Company B) that both advertise a price of 10¢ per Kilowatt Hour (kWh). Your first thought may be: “they offer the same price”. But no, they don’t!
Most of the prices that are advertised by the energy companies are Tiered Prices. So you will only pay the advertised rate if your monthly usage falls under that specific tier. Going back to our scenario, it would look something like this:
Company A offers the advertised rate when your monthly usage is ABOVE 2000 kWh.
Company B offers this price when your monthly usage is UNDER 1000 kWh.
So if we go back now and ask the same question. Which company offers a better rate? The proper answer should be — “it depends”! Your bill price will be determined by various parameters such as monthly usage, base charges, usage credits, discounts, time of usage, and more… Calculating how much you’re ACTUALLY going to pay is impossible without taking all these parameters into account.
That’s why SlashPlan is here for you!
Our comparison page will show you plans from different electric companies in a standardized way that is easy to compare and understand. We include all the fees and discounts, so you can compare apples-to-apples.
The best way to shop for electricity is to see all your options in one place, where all the fees and discounts are already included in the final price.
We’ve put all this information at your figure tips.
With our comparison service, you can finally sort and filter plans to match your specific criteria. The best options will show on top of the list by default.
To make sure you are not misled by the energy companies, we display all-inclusive prices on our platform. We include all the credits and discounts you will be getting based on your exact usage. Oftentimes, the rates that are advertised online are associated with the highest usage levels, which are usually the lowest. Don’t let these rates fool you. Most households do not reach the usage levels that are needed in order to qualify for these low rates.
SlashPlan has your back! We level the playing field and make shopping for cheap energy rates accessible and easy for everybody!
We supply you with all the info that you need in order to make the best purchasing decision. We only show rates from well-respected and reputable energy companies that you can rely on.
Even if you aren’t moving, you can save hundreds of dollars a year by switching providers. If you’re not locked into a contract with your energy provider you are likely overpaying.

How To Find A Reliable Power Company in Galveston?
Most consumers are not aware that in Deregulated Energy markets, the energy companies that sell you power are not in charge of servicing and maintaining your electricity infrastructure. That job is done by a utility company (also known as TDSP).
Sound counterintuitive, right?
In order for energy prices to stay low and competitive, law-makers in Texas decided to eliminate monopolies by not allowing the TDSP’s to sell energy directly to the end-users.
The utility companies are, however, in charge of delivering the electricity to your home, and maintaining the power lines and the energy infrastructure.
Any issues related to power outages, blackouts, or the electric meter will need to be addressed by the utility company, and not your provider.
What does this mean for us, the retail consumers?
This means that the power that you receive to your home or business is literally all the same. Regardless of which company sells it to you. There is only 1 utility company that services your address, and they are the only company that delivers electricity to you.
So what’s the difference between all the other energy providers?
The main differences are that they offer different plans, structures, and prices.
Certain providers may only offer Green Energy Plans, while others may offer No-Deposit, or Short Term Month-To-Month plans.
Therefore, if you are comparing plans from different providers, as long as their prices are the same, you should focus more on the supplier’s customer service and early cancellation policy.
When you choose an electric plan through SlashPlan you can rest assured that you will be working with a quality energy supplier. We verify the providers that we work with and only display companies that have a strong proven track record and a high customer satisfaction score.

Not Sure Which Energy Plan Will Work For You?
Other than price, these are key points to consider when enrolling in a new plan:
Monthly Usage – This will directly affect your effective price. To find the best possible price, it’s best if you have your previous 12-month usage history. You can then input that data into our calculator to find out exactly how much you will pay for the new plan.
Rate Type – Some people prefer a long-term peace of mind that comes with a Fixed Rate plan. Others prefer a more dynamic, sometimes lower rate that changes monthly according to the Electricity Price Index.
Term Length – Would you rather have peace of mind for the long term (12+ months), or would like to stick to a short-term 3-6 month plan?
Green Energy – How important is it to you? Would you like to help the environment by signing up for a Green Energy Plan?
To read more we have a blog with plenty of resources that explain everything you need to know about the energy market and useful cost-saving tactics and tips.
Our comparison page will instantly tell you which plan currently offers the cheapest price, based on your usage and the filters you select.

What Information Do I Need To Provide When Signing-Up?
It’s important to remember that SlashPlan is not your electricity provider. We created a platform that allows you to quickly compare and sign-up (or switch) your electricity plan.
When you sign up for a new plan, your new provider requires us to send them some information about you to initiate the enrollment.
We do not store sensitive information on our servers and make sure to protect your private data. We will never sell or share it with anyone!
Most people prefer a streamlined online enrollment, if you feel uncomfortable submitting your information online you can also enroll over the phone.
This typically is the information an electric company will require you to provide:
- Full Name
- Service Address
- Billing Address
- Social Security Number or Driver’s License Number (to determine if a deposit is required)
- Requested service start date
- Meter Number – The number printed on your Electric Meter. It can also be found on your recent electricity bill.
Business Electricity Rates in Galveston
Business electricity rates in Galveston can vary widely, depending on the size of the business, the type of industry, and the specific plan that is chosen. This can make it difficult for businesses to shop around for the best rates, as they may not have the time or resources to compare all of their options.
There are a few reasons why it’s hard to shop for business electricity rates. First, there are many different providers to choose from. Second, the rates offered by different providers can change frequently. Third, it can be difficult to compare rates because they are often expressed in different terms.
Despite the challenges, it’s important for businesses to find the best electricity rates possible. This is because energy costs can account for a significant portion of a business’s operating expenses. Even a small difference in rates can save a business a significant amount of money over the course of a year.
There are a few things that business owners can do to find the best rate.
Get quotes from multiple providers. Compare rates and plans carefully. Read the terms of the contract carefully. Shop for a fixed-rate plan, and consider signing a longer-term contract.
