How to find the best energy plan in Gardendale
#1 rule: Determine what your usage is!
Determining how much energy you will consume monthly is the ideal way to find a deal on energy in Gardendale. Why does this matter?
The rate you see electricity providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 1000 kWh).
Every plan has a different calculation for how your monthly bill is computed, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much power you use in a month.
Unless you match the exact advertised usage each month, you will end up paying a “price per kWh” different than the one you saw advertised when you ordered.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to shop for a power plan.
Calculating your total monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing plans by total monthly cost is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for your household.
Even better, if you have 12 months of usage history for your home, you can compare plans by total annual cost. This annualized method considers the changes in usage between the summer and winter months and is the best way to find the right electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all the complicated math for you in an instant. What could take you hours on a spreadsheet is now solved in moments.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of plans, and guide you step-by-step to the energy rate plan that’s best for your home’s usage.
We clarify the fine print, disclosing the various charges, so you’ll know exactly where your money is going and what to anticipate on your bill.
We then help you order your plan with your chosen electricity provider without leaving our service.
The bottom line is you should determine your expected or historical usage before ordering the best electricity plan for your home.
If you don’t know your usage, estimate
If you cannot 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 Gardendale
Switching is good. Market conditions are constantly changing, so it is essential to shop for a lower price every year when your contract expires.
Your existing energy provider will generally raise your electricity rate once your term expires. If you do not take action, you’ll be left on a month-to-month rate significantly more than the plan you signed up for.
Before renewing your contract, check the rates of competing electricity providers.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars yearly on your electricity bill.
Switching is easy:
- You don’t have to contact your current company 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 switch, your new energy company will handle everything, including terminating service with your previous provider.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Gardendale is all delivered by the Oncor Transmission and Distribution Utility.
The wires and poles that deliver electricity to your home do not change when you switch energy providers. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can pick any date up to 14 days before your current contract’s end 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 providers up to 6o days in advance.
And even if you’re well inside your contract, savings achieved on your monthly bill by switching companies may outweigh the fee of breaking your existing contract.
If you’re ready to switch and want to know how to find the best plan, remember that knowing your usage is the best way to find the cheapest rate.
You will want to gather your past usage for the last 12 months to determine your household’s best plan with the lowest rate.
