How to find the best energy plan in Oglesby
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Knowing the amount of electricity you will use each month is the ideal way to find a deal on energy in Oglesby. Why does this matter?
The rate you see power companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 1000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different equation for how your monthly statement is computed, and your monthly bill will change according to how much energy 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 saw when you signed up.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to choose your power provider.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on anticipate monthly usage, then comparing plans by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for your home.
Even better, 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 determine the perfect energy rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all the complicated math for you in an instant. What could take you hours on a spreadsheet is now done in just moments.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of research, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of offers and guide you step-by-step to the energy rate plan that’s best for your home’s consumption.
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 monthly bill.
We then help you in ordering your plan with your chosen power provider without leaving our service.
The take away here is you should determine your expected or historical usage before selecting 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 shop for the best energy plan for your specific usage.

Switching electricity companies in Oglesby
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, 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 electricity rate once your contract 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 electricity companies.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars each year on your electricity 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 power supply
- It takes just minutes
When you decide to switch, your new energy company will take care of everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Oglesby 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 providers. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can pick any date within 14 days of your contract expiration date without an “early cancellation” fee. 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 price.
You will want to find your past usage for the last 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
