Moving to West Columbia or Just Switching to a Cheaper Electricity Rate?
Whether you are moving to, or already live in West Columbia, we want to make sure you are making an informed decision and getting the cheapest energy plan that is offered in your area.
With dozens of electric companies competing for your business and offering electricity services in West Columbia, it is extremely difficult to find that one plan that offers you the most savings.
Many of the provider websites you visit are difficult to navigate. They show advertised rates in a large bold text but hide the additional fees that come along with it.
Why spend the time manually comparing plans when SlashPlan can do it for you?
Our service is 100% 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?
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.
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). 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.
So if we go back now and ask the same question. Which company offers a better rate?
The proper answer should be — “it depends”!
Your bill price will be determined by various parameters such as monthly usage, base charges, usage credits, discounts, time of usage, and more…
Calculating how much you’re ACTUALLY going to pay is impossible without taking all these parameters into account.
That’s exactly what we’re here to solve!
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.
On our comparison page, you can sort, filter, and shop by price at YOUR specific usage level.
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 back! We level the playing field and make shopping for cheap energy rates accessible and easy for everybody!
We’ll provide you with all the information available, showing you the best deals from the most respected, reputable providers in your area offering the best rates, terms, and customer satisfaction.
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 Electricity Company in West Columbia?
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”.
That’s confusing, right?
To make sure that the enrgy market is competitive, law-makers decided that these TDSP’s will not be allowed to sell energy directly to the consumer.
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?
The reason this introduction was important is because now you understand that the Energy Provider 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 are the differences between all the other energy companies?
The main difference is that they offer different plans, structures, and prices.
Some providers focus on Green Energy, while other focus on offering No-Deposit, or Short Term Variable plans.
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 choose an electric plan through SlashPlan you can be confident that you will be signing up with a quality energy provider. We verify the providers that we work with and only feature companies that have a strong proven track record and a high customer satisfaction score.

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 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 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 – 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.
