Electricity Price Trends in Holland
Energy in Holland, Texas, is deregulated. As a resident, you have a choice when it comes to selecting a retail electricity provider (your electricity provider), which gives you insight and command over your energy bill.
Deregulation of energy in the state de-monopolized the energy market for the majority of the state, the city of Holland included, which introduced massive competition.
As a result, many excellent power providers compete for your business in Holland by offering low-prices, making it a great time to shop, switch, and lower costs on your electricity statement.
As many as 60-100 providers compete for your account in Holland and there are hundreds of plans to choose from.

How to find the best energy plan in Holland
#1 rule: Usage is king!
Determining the amount of energy you will use each month is the ideal way to shop for electricity in Holland. Why does this matter?
The rate you see power companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 1000 kWh).
Every plan has a different equation for how your monthly statement is calculated, and your monthly bill will be determined by 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 observed when you signed up.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to pick your power rate.
Calculating your total monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing options by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the best rate for your household.
Better still, if you have 12 months 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 find the perfect electricity rate 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 moments.
We put the power in your hands, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of offers and guide you step-by-step to the energy plan that’s best for your home’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 bill.
We then assist you in enrolling with your chosen electricity provider without ever having to leave our website.
The bottom line is you must determine your expected or historical usage before choosing 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 find the best electricity plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Holland: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Holland, 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.
Note: If you can’t obtain usage history, you can estimate your monthly usage instead. Utilize our “Help Me Choose” tool when you enter your zip code below and we’ll help you evaluate your home’s usage.

Switching electricity companies in Holland
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is important to shop for a lower rate each year when your contract is close to expiring.
Your existing electricity provider 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 more 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 energy bill.
Switching is easy:
- You don’t have to call 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 make the switch, your new energy company will handle everything for you including terminating service with your previous company.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Holland 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 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. Texas law protects you here.
If you’re still under contract, find out 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 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 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.
