How to find the best energy plan in Early
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Discovering how much energy you will use in a month is the best way to find a deal on electricity in Early. Why is this so vital?
The “price per kWh” you see power providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 2000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different equation for how your monthly statement is computed, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much power you use in a month.
Unless you use exactly the advertised amount each month, you will end up paying an effective “price per kWh” different than the one you saw advertised when you signed up.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to pick your power provider.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on anticipate monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the best rate for your household.
Better yet, if you have 12 months of usage history for your household, 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 find the right energy plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you in an instant. What takes hours on a spreadsheet is now solved in just seconds.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of plans and guide you step-by-step to the electricity rate plan that’s best for your household’s consumption.
We clarify the details, disclosing all fees and charges, so you’ll know precisely where your money is going and what to anticipate on your monthly bill.
We then help you in ordering your plan with your selected electricity provider without leaving our website.
The bottom line is you must understand your expected or historical usage before selecting the right 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.
Although knowing the previous 12-months of usage is optimum, it is far better to estimate the average energy consumption than to select the first electricity provider that you see advertised. After all, you have no idea how much energy you will use at that point.
Use ComparePower to shop for the best energy plan for your specific usage.

Switching electricity companies in Early
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is important to shop for a lower rate each 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 shop the rates of competing energy companies.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars each year on your energy bill.
Switching is easy:
- You don’t have to call 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 provider will take care of everything for you including canceling service with your previous provider.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Early 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 energy companies. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can choose any date up to 14 days early of your current contract’s end date without an “early termination” fee. That’s Texas Law.
If you’re still under contract, find out 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.
If you are unsure email us your latest energy bill and one of our team members will respond to you promptly with 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 best rate.
You will want to gather your past usage for the past 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
