Why Compare Electricity Rates?
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”.
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.
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). 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 display all-inclusive pricing from different providers in a standard, easy-to-read platform.
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.
To make sure you are not misled by the energy providers, 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.
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 Energy Company in Hidalgo?
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”.
Sound counterintuitive, 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.
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.
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 companies?
The main difference is that they offer different plans, structures, and prices.
Some providers 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 choose a power plan through SlashPlan you can be confident 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 postivie proven track record and a high customer satisfaction score.

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 – Do you prefer a fixed-rate or a variable rate plan?
Term Length – Would you rather have peace of mind for the long term (12+ months), or would like to stick to a short-term 3-6 month plan?
Green Energy – Helping the environment by having your Power Provider 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.

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 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 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.
