Electricity Price Trends in Olney
Energy in Olney, Texas, is deregulated. As a consumer of energy, you have a choice when it comes to selecting a retail electricity provider (your electricity company), which gives you insight and control over your energy bill.
Deregulation of electricity in the state de-monopolized the energy market for the majority of the state, the city of Olney included, which introduced lots of competition.
As a result, many excellent energy providers compete for your business in Olney by offering low-prices, making it a great time to shop, switch, and save money on your energy bill.
As many as 60-100 energy companies compete for your account in Olney and there are hundreds of plans to sort through.

How to find the best energy plan in Olney
#1 rule: Usage is key!
Determining the amount of energy you will consume month-to-month is the best way to find a deal on power in Olney. Why is this so vital?
The rate you see power providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 1000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different calculation for how your monthly bill is determined, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much power you use in a month.
Unless you use exactly the advertised amount 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 shop for energy rate.
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 lowest rate for your home.
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 ideal way to find the perfect electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all the complicated math for you instantly. What takes hours inside a spreadsheet is now done 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 plans and assist you step-by-step to the electricity 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 monthly bill.
We then assist you in enrolling with your chosen power provider without ever having to leave our website.
The take away here is you must determine your expected or historical usage before choosing the best electricity 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 energy plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Olney: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Olney, to get the best rate you need to get the previous 12-months of energy usage for your new home.

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.

Switching electricity companies in Olney
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 more than the plan you signed up.
Before renewing your contract make sure to check the rates of competing energy providers.
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 electricity supply
- It takes just minutes
When you make the switch, your new electricity company will handle everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Olney 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 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” 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 companies up to 6o days in advance.
And even if you’re well inside your contract, savings achieved on your monthly bill by switching companies may outweigh the fee to break your existing contract.
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 lowest 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.
