Why Compare Electricity Rates?
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”.
It’s extremely difficult and time-consuming to find the absolute best price without using a sophisticated comparison service like SlashPlan has to offer.
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). Most people would look at it and think that the prices are identical, therefore their monthly bill would be identical too. Wrong!
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.
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.
So if we go back now and ask the same question. Which company offers a better rate?
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…
Calculating how much you’re ACTUALLY going to pay is impossible without taking all these parameters into account.
That’s where SlashPlan comes in to help!
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.
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.
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.
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 Albany?
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 seprate utility company, also called a “TDSP”.
Sound counterintuitive, right?
To make sure that the enrgy market is competitive, law-makers decided that these TDSP’s will not be allowed to sell energy directly to the consumer.
That’s how the market operates. The energy companies sell you electricity at competitive prices, and the utility companies deliver that energy to your home or business.
Any issues related to power outages, blackouts, or the electric meter will need to be addressed by the utlity company, and not your provider.
Why should I care about this anyway?
This means that the electricity 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.
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 termination policy, and ease of communication.
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 strong proven track record and a high customer satisfaction score.

Your monthly usage – Having your 12-month usage history will allow you to find the best plan for your usage habits.
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!

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 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 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 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.
