    Why Use SlashPlan To Compare Electricity Rates in Gardendale?

    Who you should 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!

    Like any other service provider, electricity companies always try to charge you as much as they can, and they use different tactics to make it happen, all while telling you that you’re getting a “deal”.

    It’s extremely difficult and time-consuming to find the absolute best price without using a sophisticated comparison service like SlashPlan has to offer.

    Let me present you with a common scenario that we see all the time:

    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!

    A standard practice in the energy industry is to offer Tiered Pricing. This means that you will only pay the advertised rate if your monthly usage is within the specified tier. If we look back at our case, here’s what we mean:

    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.

    If we go back and repeat the same question. Who offers a better rate? The proper answer should be — “it depends”! It depends on your monthly usage, and multiple other factors, such as monthly base charges, usage credits, discounts, time of usage, etc… Calculating how much you’re ACTUALLY going to pay is impossible without taking all these parameters into account.

    That’s exactly what we’re here to solve!

    SlashPlan takes the guesswork out of finding the cheapest energy plan

    We display all-inclusive pricing from different providers in a standard, easy-to-read platform.

    The final price is really what matters. To make sure you’re really getting a good deal, you need to be able to see the final monthly estimated price, including all fees and credits.

    We’ve put all this information at your figure tips.

    On our comparison page, you can sort, filter, and shop by price at YOUR specific usage level.

    The rates we display on SlashPlan are the rates you’ll actually experience on your bill, inclusive of all hidden fees. We make sure that you’re not misled by the cheaper rates often advertised by electric providers… those advertised rates are associated with higher usage levels that many households never enjoy because their usage level never reaches that pricing tier.

    SlashPlan has your best interest in our heart, and when shopping for energy, we are loyal to you. We act on your behalf to level the playing field and let the electric providers fight and compete to earn your business.

    We’ll provide you with all the necessary details, showing you the best deals from the most respected, reputable providers in your area offering the best rates, terms, and customer satisfaction.

    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 Energy Company in Gardendale?

    It’s important to understand that when you sign up for service, your are enrolling with a Retail Electric Provider. Your provider is not in charge of servicing and maintaining your energy infrastructure, and they are not the ones that will fix blackouts or outages. Maintenance is done by a separate utility company, also called a “TDSP”.

    That’s confusing, right?

    To make sure that the energy market is competitive, law-makers decided that these TDSP’s will not be allowed to sell energy directly to the consumer.

    So the Retail Providers sell you the electricity, but the TDSP’s are the ones delivering that electricity to your home or business, and maintaining the infrastructure, such as power lines and poles.

    If you have a power outage, or have an issue with your meter, you will need to contact the utility company that services your area.

    There are 5 main utility companies in Texas. Determine which utility company services your area.

    What does this mean for us, the retail consumers?

    The reason this introduction is important is because now you understand that the Energy Provider you sign up with will not change the “quality” of your electricity service. You get the same electricity, from the same source, regardless of which provider you sign up with.

    So what are the differences between all the other energy providers?

    The main differences are that they offer different plans, structures, and prices.

    Some providers only offer green plans, others include no-deposit plans, etc…

    Therefore, if you are comparing plans from different providers, as long as their prices are the same, you should focus more on the provider’s customer service and early termination policy.

    When you choose an electric plan through SlashPlan you can be confident that you will be signing up with a quality energy provider. We vet the providers that we work with and only display companies that have a postivie proven track record and a high customer satisfaction score.

    Not Sure Which Energy Plan Will Work For You?

    Deciding on a new plan? Here are the top things to consider:

    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 Do I Need In Order To Sign Up?

    It’s important to remember that SlashPlan is not your electricity provider. We created a marketplace that allows you to quickly compare and sign-up (or switch) your electricity service.

    When you sign up for a new plan, your new provider requires us to send them some of the enrollment data.

    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!

    Although 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 – Each service address in Texas has a unique meter number, also known as an ESID. When you enroll online we will find your ESID number based on your address. If you enroll over the phone, you can also find this number in your previous electric bill.
