For a limited time, SlashPlan is offering a concierge service where we will get those numbers on your behalf.
Why Use SlashPlan To Compare Electricity Rates in Gainesville?
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:
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!
A standard practice in the energy industry is to offer Tiered Pricing.
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.
If we go back and repeat the same question. Who offers a better rate?
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!
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.
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.
We’ve put all this information at your figure tips.
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!

How To Find A Reliable Power Company in Gainesville?
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 keep the energy prices low and eliminate monopolies deregulated markets don’t allow utility companies (aka TDU / TDSP) to sell electricity directly to the end user.
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?
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 providers?
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 supplier’s customer service and early termination policy.
When you choose a power plan through SlashPlan you can rest assured that you will be signing up with a quality energy provider. We vet the providers that we work with and only feature companies that have a strong proven track record and outstanding customer support.

Not Sure Which Energy Plan Will Work For You?
Other than price, these are the top 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 – 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 platform that allows you to easily 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 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!
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 – The number printed on your Electric Meter. It can also be found on your recent electricity bill.
