How to find the best energy plan in Hamlin
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Knowing how much electricity you will consume monthly is the best way to shop for power in Hamlin. Why is this important?
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 calculated, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much energy 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 what you saw when you enrolled.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to pick your electricity rate.
Calculating your total monthly bill based on expected monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for you.
Even better, if you have an entire year 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 absolute best way to discover the ideal energy plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you in an instant. What could take you hours on a spreadsheet is now done in just seconds.
We put the power in your hands, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of plans and navigate you step-by-step to the electricity plan that’s best for your home’s usage.
We clarify the fine print, disclosing all fees and charges, so you’ll know exactly where your money is going and what to expect on your monthly bill.
We then assist you in ordering your plan with your chosen electricity company without leaving our service.
The take away here is you should know your expected or historical usage before choosing the right electricity plan for your home.
If you don’t know your usage, estimate
If you recently purchased a home or business, or you cannot obtain 12-months of usage history, you can always estimate the average amount of energy that you will use in any given 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 find the best electricity plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Hamlin: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Hamlin, to get the best rate you need to get the previous 12-months of energy usage for your new home.
Ask the previous home-owner to provide you with their past 12-months of usage.
This information is readily found in recent billing statements.
It may take some effort to acquire usage for the past 12-months, but the time (and savings) will be well worth it.
Once you have historical usage, ComparePower will do the math instantly to help you find the best plan for your home’s usage pattern.

Switching electricity companies in Hamlin
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 about to expire.
Your existing electricity provider will normally raise your electricity rate once your term expires. If you fail to take action, you’ll be left on a month-to-month rate that is significantly more than the plan you signed up.
Before renewing your contract make sure to shop 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 contact your current company 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 terminating service with your previous company.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Hamlin 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 providers. 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” penalty. Texas law protects you here.
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 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 understanding your usage is the best way to find the truly lowest price.
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.

Important: You must send your waiver information by email, phone, fax or mail to your new energy company (not to ComparePower).
