Why Compare Electricity Rates?
Many consumers don’t know that the power to choose energy is in their own hands. We can’t blame them though, many new residents are moving to The Lonestar State from regulated energy markets.
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”.
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.
Here’s a common scenario that we see all the time:
2 energy companies (Company A & Company B) both charge 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.
Now, let’s repeat the question. Who offers the cheaper price? The truth is, you can’t determine that without looking at a few other parameters… Your bill price will be determined by various parameters such as monthly usage, base charges, usage credits, discounts, time of usage, and more… Calculating your final monthly bill would not be possible without taking all of the above parameters into account.
That’s where SlashPlan comes in to help!
We show you the actual, all-inclusive prices that you can expect to pay on your bill. No hidden charges or surprises!
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.
Using our free service, you can now easily find this information in a matter of seconds!
On our comparison page, you can sort, filter, and shop by price at YOUR specific usage level.
To make sure you are not misled by the energy providers, 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.

How To Find A Reliable Power Company in Mertens?
You may not be aware but in a deregulated energy state like Texas, the energy company that is selling you the electricity is NOT in charge of maintaining the power infrastructure or handling outages. Instead, a different utility company, known as a “TDSP” is in charge of doing that.
That’s confusing, right?
To keep the energy prices low and eliminate monopolies deregulated markets don’t allow utility companies (aka TDU / TDSP) to sell electricity directly to the end user.
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.
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 energy 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 are the differences between all the other energy companies?
They all have different structured plans 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 a power plan through SlashPlan you can rest assured that you will be working with a quality energy provider. We vet the providers that we work with and only feature companies that have a postivie proven track record and a high customer satisfaction score.

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 instantly 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 provider 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.

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.
