Stop wasting time comparing different plans using a 200 row Excel spreadsheet!
Our service is 100% FREE.
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 Use SlashPlan To Compare Electricity Rates in Ben Franklin?
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:
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). 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.
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.
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…
Your bill price will be determined by various parameters such as monthly usage, base charges, usage credits, discounts, time of usage, and more…
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 show you the actual, all-inclusive prices that you can expect to pay on your bill. No hidden charges or surprises!
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.
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 necessary details, 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 Ben Franklin?
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.
That’s confusing, 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.
For any issues with blackouts, power outages, or the electric meter, you will need to contact the utility company directly.
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 providers?
They all have different structured plans and prices.
Some providers only offer green plans, others include no-deposit plans, etc…
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 an electric plan through SlashPlan you can be confident that you will be signing up with a quality energy supplier. We verify the providers that we work with and only display companies that have a postivie proven track record and outstanding customer support.

Not Sure Which Energy Plan Will Work For You?
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 – 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 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 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 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.
