How to find the best energy plan in Matador
#1 rule: Usage is king!
Knowing how much energy you will use monthly is the ideal way to shop for power in Matador. Why is this important?
The rate you see electricity providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 1000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different calculation for how your monthly bill is computed, and your monthly bill will be determined by how much electricity you use in each 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 signed up.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to pick your power company.
Calculating your total monthly bill based on anticipate monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for you.
Better still, 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 find the ideal electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you instantly. What takes hours on a spreadsheet is now done in a few seconds.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of research, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of plans and guide you step-by-step to the electricity rate plan that’s best for your household’s usage.
We clarify the fine print, disclosing the various charges and fees, so you’ll know precisely where your money is going and what to expect on your monthly bill.
We then help you in enrolling with your chosen electricity company without leaving our service.
The take away here is you should 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.

Switching electricity companies in Matador
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is important to shop for a lower price each year when your contract is close to expiring.
Your existing energy company will typically raise your electricity rate once your contract 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 energy companies.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars each year on your energy 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 decide to switch, your new electricity provider will handle everything for you including canceling service with your previous provider.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Matador 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 cancellation” penalty. 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 providers may outweigh the fee to break your existing contract.
For help with this, you can send us your latest energy bill via email, and one of our professional team members will contact you shortly to discuss 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 rate.
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.
