How to find the best energy plan in El Indio
#1 rule: Determine what your usage is!
Determining how much electricity you will consume monthly is the ideal way to shop for energy in El Indio. Why is this important?
The rate you see energy providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 1000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different calculation for how your monthly statement is calculated, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much power you consume in each month.
Unless you use exactly the advertised amount each month, you will end up paying an effective “price per kWh” different than what you observed when you signed up.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to shop for power company.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing plans by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the best rate for you.
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 absolute best way to determine the right electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you instantly. What takes hours on a spreadsheet is now done in a few 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 rate plan that’s best for your household’s usage.
We clarify the fine print, disclosing all fees and charges, so you’ll know precisely where your money is going and what to expect on your bill.
We then help you in signing-up with your chosen energy provider without ever having to leave our website.
The take away here is you must know your expected or historical usage before ordering the right energy 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 El Indio
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is important to shop for a lower rate every year when your contract is close to expiring.
Your existing electricity company will normally raise your energy rate once your term 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 energy providers.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars each year on your electricity 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 power supply
- It takes just minutes
When you decide to switch, your new electricity 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 El Indio 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 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 cancellation” fee. 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.
And even if you’re well inside your contract, savings achieved on your monthly bill by switching providers may outweigh the fee to break your existing contract.
If you are unsure email us your latest energy bill and one of our team members will get back 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 knowing your usage is the best way to find the truly cheapest rate.
Keep in mind that when you get ready to switch, and you want to know the most efficient way to find the right plan at the best rate, it is essential that you first understand your usage. To accomplish that, you will need to collect the usage history for the past 12 months.
