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 Texas from regulated energy markets.
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.
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). 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.
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.
If we go back and repeat the same question. Who offers a better rate?
The proper answer should be — “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 comes in to help!
We display all-inclusive pricing from different providers in a standard, easy-to-read platform.
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.
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.
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’ll provide you with all the information available, showing you the best deals from the most respected, reputable providers in your area offering the best rates, terms, and customer satisfaction.

How To Find A Reliable Electricity Company in Decatur?
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?
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.
That’s how the market operates. The energy companies sell you electricity at competitive prices, and the utility companies deliver that energy to your home or business.
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.
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’s the difference between all the other energy companies?
They all have different structured plans and prices.
Some companies only offer green plans, others include no-deposit plans, etc…
Therefore, if you are comparing plans from different providers, as long as their prices are the same, you should focus more on the provider’s customer service and early cancellation policy.
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 well-known power supplier that has a proven track record of competitive prices and outstanding customer support.

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 – 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.
