Why Use SlashPlan To Compare Electricity Rates in Barker?
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!
Electricity suppliers 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.
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.
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). You might think that since both companies offer the same price, your bill would be the same. But it wouldn’t!
Most of the prices that are advertised by the energy companies are Tiered Prices.
This means that you will only pay the advertised rate if your monthly usage is within the specified 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 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…
Estimating your final bill is impossible without taking all of these charges and credits into consideration.
That’s exactly what we’re here to solve!
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 best way to shop for electricity is to see all your options in one place, where all the fees and discounts are already included in the final price.
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.
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 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 Barker?
You may not be aware but in a deregulated energy state like Texas, the energy company that is selling you the electricity is NOT in charge of maintaining the power infrastructure or handling outages. Instead, a different utility company, known as a “TDSP” is in charge of doing that.
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.
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.
Any issues related to power outages, blackouts, or the electric meter will need to be addressed by the utlity company, and not your provider.
Now that I understand that, how does it affect me?
The reason we care about this 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’s the difference between all the other energy companies?
They all have different structured plans and prices.
Some providers 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 sign up for a new plan using SlashPlan, you can be confident that you’re getting a great deal, and will sign up with a reputable energy supplier that has a proven track record of competitive prices and outstanding customer support.

Top 4 Things To Consider When Signing Up

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 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 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 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 – The number printed on your Electric Meter. It can also be found on your recent electricity bill.
