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 Texas 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.
Still not sure why? Let me show you a common scenario:
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!
A standard practice in the energy industry is to offer Tiered Pricing. 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… It depends on your monthly usage, and multiple other factors, such as monthly base charges, usage credits, discounts, time of usage, etc… Estimating your final bill is impossible without taking all of these charges and credits into consideration.
That’s why SlashPlan is here for you!
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!
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 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 provide 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 Electricity Company in Putnam?
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?
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.
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.
Now that I understand that, how does it affect me?
The reason this introduction is important is because now you understand that the Energy Company you sign up with will not change the “reliability” 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 difference is 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 provider’s customer service and early cancellation policy.
When you choose a power plan through SlashPlan you can be confident that you will be working with a quality energy supplier. We verify the providers that we work with and only feature companies that have a strong proven track record and outstanding customer support.

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 – Do you prefer a fixed-rate or a variable rate plan?
Term Length – 12 months is a standard enrollment term. If prices are low right now, take advantage of the low rates and lock-in a fixed price for 24 months or more!
Green Energy – How important is it to you? Would you like to help the environment by signing up for a Green Energy Plan?

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 platform that allows you to instantly 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!
Although most people prefer a streamlined online enrollment, if you feel uncomfortable submitting your information online you can also enroll over the phone.
This normally 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.
