How to find the best energy plan in Laguna Vista
#1 rule: Usage is king!
Discovering the amount of energy you will consume in a month is the ideal way to shop for energy in Laguna Vista. Why should you care?
The rate you see power providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 2000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different equation for how your monthly statement is determined, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much energy you consume 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.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to select your energy provider.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on expected monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the best rate for you.
Even better, if you have an entire year 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 determine the perfect energy plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you in an instant. What takes hours on a spreadsheet is now solved in a few seconds.
We put the power in your hands, taking what would amount to hours of research, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of plans and assist you step-by-step to the electricity plan that’s best for your home’s usage.
We clarify the details, disclosing all fees and charges, so you’ll know exactly where your money is going and what to anticipate on your bill.
We then help you in ordering your plan with your chosen energy provider without ever having to leave our service.
The take away here is you must determine your expected or historical usage before picking 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.
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 electricity plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Laguna Vista: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Laguna Vista, 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.
Sign-up for a plan in minutes through ComparePower. We will remind you when its time to return to switch and save at the end of the plan term you decide on.

Switching electricity companies in Laguna Vista
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is essential to shop for a lower price every year when your contract is close to expiring.
Your existing electricity provider will typically raise your energy 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 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 decide to switch, your new electricity company will handle everything for you including canceling service with your previous provider.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Laguna Vista 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 early of your current contract’s end date without an “early termination” 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 companies 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 understanding your usage is the best way to find the truly cheapest rate.
You will want to gather your historical usage for the last 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.

You may be eligible to have the deposit waived if you meet one of the following criteria.
A residential customer or applicant may be deemed as having established satisfactory credit if:
- The customer has been a customer of any REP or an electric utility within the two years prior to the request for electric service; is not delinquent in payment of any such electric service account, and during the last 12 consecutive months of service was not late in paying a bill more than once.
- The customer or applicant possesses a satisfactory credit rating obtained through a consumer reporting agency, as defined by the Federal Trade Commission.
- The customer or applicant is 65 years of age or older and the customer is not currently delinquent in payment of any electric service account.
- The customer or applicant has been determined to be a victim of family violence.
- The customer is medically indigent.
The requirements above are directly from the Texas Public Utility Commission §25.478 – Credit Requirements and Deposits.
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.
After you’ve placed your order, you will receive an email with instructions as well as contact information for your new energy company.
Important: You must send your waiver information by email, phone, fax or mail to your new energy company (not to ComparePower).
As soon as your energy company receives your documentation, they will let you know that they’ve sent a request for your energy service to begin.
Remember, your energy company will not start your electric service until you satisfy any deposit requirement (you pay or receive a waiver).
If you have any questions on deposit waivers, you can contact us. One of our team members will get back to you as soon as possible.
