Why Use SlashPlan To Compare Electricity Rates in Mercedes?
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.
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.
Let me present you with 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.
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 truth is, you can’t determine that without looking at a few other parameters…
It depends on your monthly usage, and multiple other factors, such as monthly base charges, usage credits, discounts, time of usage, etc…
Calculating how much you’re ACTUALLY going to pay is impossible without taking all these 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 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.
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 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!

Average Homeowner Electricity Rates in Mercedes, Texas
The price of energy in Texas is changing all the time. Between 2001-2020, Texans have been paying 11.1¢ kWh (Kilowatt/Hour) on average for their electricity.
Since Retail Electric Prices are constantly fluctuating, it’s difficult to tell if the plan you’re currently enrolled in is offering you a good deal.
The rates that you manually worked hard to compile may not be relevant by the time you sign-up. The energy company that gave you the best deal last year may no longer offer the best prices.

How To Find A Reliable Power Company in Mercedes?
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).
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.
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.
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?
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 companies 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 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 reputable energy supplier that has a proven track record of competitive prices and superb customer support.

What Information Do I Need To Provide When Signing-Up?
It’s important to remember that SlashPlan is not your electricity provider. We created a marketplace 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 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 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.
