We monitor a large number of electricity plans, by different energy companies in Alvarado which updates daily, and we present them to you in one easy-to-understand list, with the cheapest rates showing first.
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.
Electricity companies are there to make a profit, and they will use different methods to charge you more. They use difficult-to-understand pricing tiers and terminology that is now known to the average consumer.
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.
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.
If we go back and repeat the same question. Who offers a better rate?
The answer to that is — 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!
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 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 Energy Company in Alvarado?
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”.
Sounds odd, 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.
The utility companies are, however, in charge of delivering the electricity to your home, and maintaning the power lines and the energy infrastructure.
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.
What does this mean for us, the retail consumers?
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.
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 an electric plan through SlashPlan you can rest assured 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.

Top 4 Things To Consider When Signing Up
Other than price, these are key points to consider when enrolling in a new plan:
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 – 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 – Helping the environment by having your Power Supplier purchase Renewable Energy Credits on your behalf to offset the impact of energy generation on the environment.
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 tool will instantly tell 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 easily 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!
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 – The number printed on your Electric Meter. It can also be found on your recent electricity bill.
