How to find the best energy plan in Cross Plains
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Knowing how much energy you will consume each month is the ideal way to find a deal on electricity in Cross Plains. Why is this so vital?
The rate you see power companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 1000 kWh).
Every plan has a different calculation for how your monthly statement is computed, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much energy you consume in each month.
Unless you match the exact advertised usage each month, you will end up paying an effective “price per kWh” different than what you saw when you signed up.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to choose your energy rate.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on expected monthly usage, then comparing plans by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the best rate for your household.
Better still, if you have an entire year of usage history for your home, you can compare plans by total annual cost. This annualized method takes into account the changes in usage between summer and winter months and is the ideal way to determine the ideal electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you in an instant. What could take you hours inside a spreadsheet is now solved in just seconds.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of research, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of plans and guide you step-by-step to the electricity plan that’s best for your household’s usage.
We clarify the details, disclosing the various charges and fees, so you’ll know precisely where your money is going and what to expect on your bill.
We then assist you in signing-up with your chosen energy company without leaving our website.
The bottom line is you must know your expected or historical usage before selecting the best electricity plan for your home.
If you don’t know your usage, estimate
If you are unable to acquire 12-months of historical usage, or you’re the owner of a brand new home, the next best thing is to estimate how much energy you will use in an average month.
While not as optimal as having all previous 12-months of usage, estimating your average usage is better than blindly picking the first plan you see advertised by an energy company at a specific usage that isn’t what you’ll consume.
Use ComparePower to shop for the best energy plan for your specific usage.

Switching electricity companies in Cross Plains
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is essential to shop for a lower rate every year when your contract is about to expire.
Your existing energy company will typically raise your energy rate once your contract expires. If you do not take action, you’ll be left on a month-to-month rate that is significantly higher than the plan you signed up.
Before renewing your contract make sure to check the rates of competing electricity providers.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars each year on your energy bill.
Switching is easy:
- You don’t have to contact your current provider to cancel (no “break-up call”)
- No one comes to your home
- There is no disruption in your electricity supply
- It takes just minutes
When you make the switch, your new energy company will take care of everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Cross Plains is all delivered by the Oncor Transmission and Distribution Utility.
The wires and poles that deliver power to your home do not change when you switch electricity providers. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can choose any date within 14 days of your contract expiration date without an “early cancellation” penalty. That’s Texas Law.
If you’re still under contract, check how many months remain on your contract. You can set a future start date with most companies up to 6o days in advance.
The amount saved each month by switching to a different electricity company may outweigh the one-time fee to get out of your contract early.
For help with this, you can send us your latest energy bill via email, and one of our professional team members will contact you shortly to discuss your best options.
If you’re ready to switch and would like to know how to find the best plan remember that understanding your usage is the best way to find the truly cheapest price.
You will want to find your historical usage for the past 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
