How to find the best energy plan in Odem
#1 rule: Determine what your usage is!
Discovering how much energy you will use month-to-month is the ideal way to shop for electricity in Odem. Why should you care?
The rate you see power providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 2000 kWh).
Every plan has a different equation for how your monthly statement is determined, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much electricity 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 the one you saw advertised when you enrolled.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to shop for electricity provider.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the best rate for your household.
Better yet, 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 ideal way to determine the right energy plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you instantly. What could take you hours inside a spreadsheet is now done in just seconds.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of research, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of plans and guide you step-by-step to the energy plan that’s best for your household’s usage.
We clarify the details, 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 help you in signing-up with your selected electricity company without leaving our service.
The take away here is you must know your expected or historical usage before ordering the best energy 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 energy plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Odem: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Odem, 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.

Switching electricity companies in Odem
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 electricity provider will normally 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 higher than the plan you signed up.
Before renewing your contract make sure to shop the rates of competing energy providers.
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 provider 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 handle everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Odem 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 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 termination” fee. That’s Texas Law.
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 knowing your usage is the best way to find the truly best 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.
