How to find the best energy plan in Garrett
#1 rule: Determine what your usage is!
Knowing how much energy you will use monthly is the best way to shop for electricity in Garrett. Why is this important?
The “price per kWh” you see energy companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 1000 kWh).
Every plan has a different calculation for how your monthly bill is calculated, and your monthly bill will be determined by how much power you use in the month.
Unless you match the exact advertised usage each month, you will end up paying an effective “price per kWh” different than what you observed when you enrolled.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to shop for power plan.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing rates 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 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 determine the ideal electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you instantly. 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 investigation, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of plans and assist you step-by-step to the electricity plan that’s best for your household’s consumption.
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 monthly bill.
We then help you in signing-up with your chosen energy provider without leaving our service.
The bottom line is you must understand your expected or historical usage before ordering the best 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 electricity 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 Garrett
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is essential to shop for a lower price each year when your contract is about to expire.
Your existing energy provider will typically raise your electricity 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 electricity companies.
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 electricity supply
- It takes just minutes
When you decide to switch, your new energy company will handle everything for you including terminating service with your previous company.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Garrett 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 companies. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can pick any date within 14 days of your contract expiration 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 providers 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 knowing your usage is the best way to find the truly cheapest price.
You will want to gather your past usage for the last 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
