Why Use SlashPlan To Compare Electricity Rates in Richardson?
Most people, especially ones who move to Texas from out of state or from regulated energy markets are not aware that they have the power to choose their electric provider.
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). You might think that since both companies offer the same price, your bill would be the same. But it wouldn’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. 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.
Now, let’s repeat the question. Who offers the cheaper price? 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 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.
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 back! We level the playing field and make shopping for cheap energy rates accessible and easy for everybody!
We’ll provide you with all the information available, showing you the best deals from the most respected, reputable providers in your area offering the best rates, terms, and customer satisfaction.
Are you not moving and still want to switch? Did you know that that by switching to a new provider at the end of your contract you can save hundreds of dollars every year? Lock-in a low rate today!

How To Find A Reliable Electricity Company in Richardson?
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).
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.
The utility companies are, however, in charge of delivering the electricity to your home, and maintaining the power lines and the energy infrastructure.
For any issues with blackouts, power outages, or the electric meter, you will need to contact the utility company directly.
Now that I understand that, how does it affect me?
The reason this introduction is important is because now you understand that the Energy Provider 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 companies?
The main differences are that they offer different plans, structures, and prices.
Some companies focus on Green Energy, while other focus on offering No-Deposit, or Short Term Variable plans.
If prices are the same, then the main differences that you should pay attention to are the provider’s customer service, early cancellation policy, and ease of communication.
When you choose a power 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 strong 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!
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.

Business electricity rates in Richardson 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.

First, they should compare rates from multiple providers. Second, they should consider signing a long-term contract, which can lock in a lower rate for a period of time. Third, they should make sure that they are using the most efficient equipment possible.
