About Compare Power – Who We Are
Energy Shopping Just Got Easier.
Energy deregulation gives consumers a choice in who they pay for their electricity service. It helps to demand a whole new level of customer service from these energy companies than has ever existed.
Some of the providers work much harder at earning your business than others, and we’re here to help you navigate the numerous options and to ultimately enroll you with the absolute best plan for your unique situation.
If you are like most of us, you’ve experienced the numerous companies and individual sales agents trying to get you to sign up for their electricity plan – telling stories of the best rates and the best customer service.
Most energy providers are interested in one thing – for you to signup for one of their electricity plans and to make as much money as they can from you. We recommend you always shop the plan, not the brand, that suits you best.
At ComparePower you shop on your own terms, no hassles and no pressure.
The plans you see at ComparePower are official plans offered directly from the providers. If you see it on our website, its ready for you to complete your order immediately.
Often, the rates we have are exclusive to us or lower priced than you find elsewhere. This is because of the volume of consumers we take care of each year, and energy companies want their products on a site that puts Texan consumers first.
It doesn’t matter to us who you sign up with so long as you find our services useful enough to choose the best electric plan for you.
Energy companies pay us a service fee for referring customers, and because we are advocates for the consumer, we’ll always keep our services free for the user.
In addition, we offer tools and on-going services to help you make the most of your time, money, and choices in choosing a provider – something you get exclusively for using ComparePower. From usage based pricing to detailed clarity on what you’ll expect to pay for a rate you’re shopping, we’ve got you covered and we build new tools all the time.
Compare Power is not an electric provider, and we do not prefer one provider over another.
Just like you have a choice in who provides your energy, you have an equal power to choose where you go to compare the best electric rates amongst the hundreds of plans being offered.
Our goal is to earn your trust – to consistently provide you with the best electric rate comparison tool available anywhere.
We want you to enjoy the site we’ve put together for you, to come back every time you want to find your lowest electric rate, and to share us with your friends.
Most of us get overwhelmed by the sheer number of options and ultimately give in to a sales pitch or a friend’s recommendation because there weren’t any efficient ways of shopping the numerous plans available and finding the ideal electric plan…
There are other websites that try to do what we do, and we beat them in consumer head-to-head comparisons day in and day out.
Here’s how we do it…
Truth in Usage Based Pricing:
Depending on the amount of electricity you use in a given month, the “Average” per-kilowatt pricing varies. Many providers advertise their highest usage-level pricing because it’s the lowest.
But that usage level is one most of us never reach. Compare Power sorts by pricing any usage you want to see pricing at, and can show you a total annual cost for any plan based on your 12 months of usage history.
This is a big deal.
We’ve seen low-usage level pricing be as much as 50% higher than the high usage-level advertised rates! We force full disclosure from the providers, and it will save you loads of time and money.
You have complete control over all sorting and filtering here at ComparePower.
Strict criteria for energy companies:
Trying to compare energy plans at different provider websites or on the phone is usually synonymous with comparing apples to oranges.
Due to the deregulated nature of this industry, not much is presented in the same way and it makes comparison very difficult and time-consuming.
We’re here to change that. Every plan we display is displayed in the same way – regardless of the provider, so you can compare apples to apples. It’s just easy.
Embedded facts labels and terms:
You never have to leave our website or call the provider to enroll.
See a plan that looks good? Click on the facts label and watch the magic happen. It’s right there, right in front of you, tied to its plan. No more trying to keep track of multiple web pages and documents. Then, signup for your selected plan and we’ll complete your order online in real-time.
