Why Compare Electricity Rates?
Many consumers don’t know that the power to choose energy is in their own hands. We can’t blame them though, many new residents are moving to The Lonestar State from regulated energy markets.
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.
Here’s a common scenario that we see all the time:
2 energy companies (Company A & Company B) both charge 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!
A standard practice in the energy industry is to offer Tiered Pricing.
So you will only pay the advertised rate if your monthly usage falls under that specific 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 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!
Our comparison page will show you plans from different electric providers 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.
For you to know you’re making the best decision, you need to have all the details in front of your eyes. Including all fees, discounts, and plan terms.
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 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!

How To Find A Reliable Power Company in Dallas?
Most consumers are not aware that in Deregulated Energy markets, the energy companies that sell you power are not in charge of servicing and maintaining your electricity infrastructure. That job is done by a utility company (also known as TDSP).
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.
The utility companies are, however, in charge of delivering the electricity to your home, and maintaning the power lines and the energy infrastructure.
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?
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 providers?
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 bargain, and will sign up with a well-known energy company that has a proven track record of competitive prices and superb 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 – 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 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 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.
