Why Compare Electricity Rates?
Most people, especially ones who move to Texas from out of state or from regulated energy markets are not aware that they have the power to choose their electric provider.
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.
Here’s 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.
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.
So if we go back now and ask the same question. Which company 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.
For you to know you’re making the best decision, you need to have all the details in front of your eyes. Including all fees, discounts, and plan terms.
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 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 back! We level the playing field and make shopping for cheap energy rates accessible and easy for everybody!

How To Find A Reliable Energy Company in Van?
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.
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?
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?
The main differences are 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 supplier’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 bargain, and will sign up with a well-known power supplier 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:
Your monthly usage – Having your 12-month usage history will allow you to find the best plan for your usage habits.
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?

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 quickly 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 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.
