How to find the best energy plan in Bedford
#1 rule: Know your usage!
As you search for a new electricity provider, it’s important that you know your monthly usage rate. Why? Because providers use a standardized rate for all of their quotes.
You might fall into the group of consumers who actually use this rate per month. More than likely, you use more or less than the quoted rate.
This means that the quoted price is unlikely to represent what will appear on your actual bill.
ComparePower levels the playing field by customizing quotes based on your actual usage. The rates presented by ComparePower are updated based on provider information and show you how much you can expect to spend each month.
If you can’t find previous bills or meter readings, take your best guess at monthly usage. This isn’t a perfect solution, but you’ll avoid picking a provider who charges you more than you’d like to spend.

Switching electricity companies in Bedford
Each year presents an opportunity to shop around for cheap electricity rates. The end of your electricity contract also means a chance for your provider to raise your rate. Shopping around for a new provider is a good idea if you want to save money each year.
Switching is simple because:
- You don’t have to call your current provider to cancel.
- No one comes to your house.
- There is no disruption in your electricity.
- It takes just minutes.
When you make the switch, your new electricity company will handle everything for you including ending service with your previous provider.
There is no loss of power when you switch because electricity in Bedford is delivered by the Oncor Transmission and Distribution Utility.
The wires and poles that deliver electricity to your home do not change when you switch electricity providers.
A few considerations can help you decide whether to make the switch:
- Texas state law allows cancellation within 14 days of a contract ending without penalty
- Most plans allow the establishment of future starting dates 60 days prior to the date
- A cheaper plan might make early termination penalties worthwhile
