How to find the best energy plan in Krum
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Discovering how much energy you will consume month-to-month is the ideal way to shop for energy in Krum. Why should you care?
The rate you see electricity providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 1000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different equation for how your monthly statement is calculated, and your monthly bill will change according to how much electricity you use in a month.
Unless you match the exact advertised usage each month, you will end up paying an effective “price per kWh” different than the one you saw advertised when you signed up.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to pick your energy plan.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing options by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for you.
Better yet, 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 absolute best way to find the perfect electricity plan for your home.
ComparePower does all the complicated math for you instantly. What could take you hours on a spreadsheet is now solved in a few moments.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of offers and navigate you step-by-step to the energy rate plan that’s best for your home’s consumption.
We clarify the details, disclosing the various charges and fees, so you’ll know exactly where your money is going and what to expect on your bill.
We then assist you in signing-up with your selected energy company without leaving our service.
The take away here is you must determine your expected or historical usage before ordering the right energy 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.
While not as optimal as having all previous 12-months of usage, estimating your average usage is better than blindly choosing the first plan you see advertised by an energy company at a specific usage that isn’t what you’ll consume.
Use ComparePower to find the best electricity plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Krum: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Krum, 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 are unable to obtain historical usage information, a second option would be to estimate your future usage via utilizing our “Help Me Choose” tool. By simply entering your zip code the tool will be able to assess your home’s projected electricity consumption.
By signing up for a plan through ComparePower you will receive automated reminders when it’s time to renew your existing plan or to possibly switch plans.

Switching electricity companies in Krum
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is important to shop for a lower price every year when your contract is close to expiring.
Your existing energy 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 higher than the plan you signed up.
Before renewing your contract make sure to check the rates of competing electricity providers.
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 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 make the 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 Krum 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 providers. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can choose any date within 14 days of your contract expiration date without an “early cancellation” penalty. That’s Texas Law.
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.
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 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 cheapest price.
You will want to find your past usage for the past 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.

A residential customer or applicant may be deemed as having established satisfactory credit if:

Note: For any of the situations above, you must first complete your order an energy plan on ComparePower before you can obtain a waiver for your deposit.

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