Electricity Price Trends in Palestine
Energy in Palestine, Texas, is deregulated. As a resident, you have a choice when it comes to choosing a retail electricity provider (your energy provider), which gives you flexibility and power over your energy bill.
Deregulation of electricity in Texas de-monopolized the electricity market for the majority of Texas, the city of Palestine included, which introduced lots of competition.
As a result, many fantastic power providers compete for your business in Palestine by offering low-prices, making it a great time to compare, switch, and lower costs on your power bill.
As many as 60-100 providers compete for your account in Palestine and there are hundreds of plans to select from.

How to find the best energy plan in Palestine
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Discovering the amount of electricity you will consume month-to-month is the ideal way to shop for electricity in Palestine. Why is this important?
The rate you see electricity providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 1000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different equation for how your monthly statement is determined, and your monthly bill will change according to how much energy you use in each month.
Unless you use exactly the advertised amount each month, you will end up paying an effective “price per kWh” different than what you saw when you signed up.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to select your power provider.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on expected monthly usage, then comparing plans by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the best rate for you.
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 discover the perfect electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all the complicated math for you in an instant. What takes hours inside a spreadsheet is now solved in just moments.
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 energy plan that’s best for your home’s usage.
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 help you in signing-up with your selected energy provider without leaving our website.
The bottom line is you should know your expected or historical usage before selecting 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 energy plan for your specific usage.

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

Switching electricity companies in Palestine
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 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 more 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 electricity bill.
Switching is easy:
- You don’t have to call 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 energy provider will take care of everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Palestine 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 companies. 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 knowing 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.
