Moving to Amherst or Just Switching to a Cheaper Electricity Rate?
Whether you are moving to, or already live in Amherst, we want to make sure you are making an informed decision and getting the cheapest energy plan that is offered in your area.
With so many options to choose from, it is extremely time-consuming to find the best plan.
Most of the supplier websites show you advertised rates in large text, only to charge you more later!
Would you rather compare plans using a manual Excel spreadsheet with hundreds of rows, or would you rather let SlashPlan find the best and cheapest plan for you?
Using our service will not cost you a dime! Yes, it is completely FREE of charge.
You may ask, how do we make sure we’re finding the best price?
We monitor hundreds of electricity plans every day and present you with an unbiased comparison that takes into account all the different fees, credits, and discounts that you will receive based on your estimated electricity usage.
Why Compare Electricity Rates?
We tend to get used to the “status quo”. We are busy and have other important things to do during our day. Most people simply think of their energy plan as a “set and forget” plan, which is a dangerous thing to do!
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.
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…
Calculating your final monthly bill would not be possible without taking all of the above parameters into account.
That’s where SlashPlan is here for you!
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.
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 companies, 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 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 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.
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!

The rates that you manually worked hard to compile may not be relevant by the time you sign-up. The energy company that gave you the best deal last year may no longer offer the best prices.

How To Find A Reliable Power Company in Amherst?
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”.
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.
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 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?
The main differences are 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.
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 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 postivie proven track record and outstanding customer support.

Top 4 Things To Consider When Signing Up
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?
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 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 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 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.
