Find The Cheapest Power Plans in Portland
Since 2002, when Energy Deregulation was introduced in Texas, residents of Portland have had the power to choose their own electric suppliers and shop around to get cheap electricity.
There are plenty of Electricity Companies serving Portland. They all offer different plans and prices. Comparing them all is overwhelming. Who has the time to do that?
SlashPlan has figured out a way to do just that!
Using our free service you can rest assured that you’re getting a cheap electricity rate. You can also filter plans based on specific preferences, or estimate your monthly bill based on your historical energy usage patterns.
If you live in Portland, read on to find out how to get the best electricity plan…
Moving to Portland or Just Switching to a Cheaper Electricity Rate?
Even if you already live in Portland, you can still enjoy a cheaper electric bill. We built this website to make sure you’re getting the best deal when shopping for a new energy plan. We take all the guesswork out of the process and present you with an unbiased apples-to-apples comparison between all the different plans.
With so many options to choose from, it is extremely time-consuming to find the best plan.
Electric suppliers advertise low prices on their websites to lure new clients in, only to find many additional fees and charges written in very small text.
Stop wasting time comparing different plans using a 200 row Excel spreadsheet!
Our service is completely FREE.
How do we do that?
We monitor hundreds of electricity plans every day and present you with an unbiased comparison that takes into account all the different fees, credits, and discounts that you will receive based on your estimated electricity usage.
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.
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.
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 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…
Estimating your final bill is impossible without taking all of these charges and credits into consideration.
That’s where SlashPlan comes in to help!
Our comparison page will show you plans from different electric companies 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.
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 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.
Even if you aren’t moving, you can save hundreds of dollars a year by switching providers. If you’re not locked into a contract with your energy provider you are likely overpaying.

How To Find A Reliable Energy Company in Portland?
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.
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.
Why should I care about this anyway?
The reason we care about this is because now you understand that the Energy Provider you sign up with will not change the “quality” of your electricity service. You get the same electricity, from the same source, regardless of which provider you sign up with.
So what are the differences between all the other energy providers?
They all have different structured plans and prices.
Certain providers may only offer Green Energy Plans, while others may offer No-Deposit, or Short Term Month-To-Month plans.
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 energy company that has a proven track record of competitive prices and outstanding 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 – 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 Information Do I Need To Provide When Signing-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.
