How to Find the Best Energy Plan in Paris
#1 rule: Determine what your usage is!
Discovering how much electricity you will consume monthly is the ideal way to find a deal on energy in Paris. Why is this important?
The “price per kWh” you see electricity companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 1000 kWh).
Every plan has a different calculation for how your monthly bill is calculated, and your monthly bill will change according to how much energy 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 signed up.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to shop for an electricity plan.
Calculating your total 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 still, if you have a year of usage history for your household, you can compare plans by total annual cost. This annualized method considers the changes in usage between the summer and winter months and is the ideal way to discover the perfect electricity 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 the power in your hands, taking what would amount to hours of research, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of offers and navigating you step-by-step to the energy plan that’s best for your household’s usage.
We clarify the details, disclosing the various charges, so you’ll know exactly where your money is going and what to anticipate on your bill.
We then help you sign up with your selected energy company without leaving our service.
The takeaway here is you should determine your expected or historical usage before selecting the right electricity plan for your home.
If you don’t know your usage, estimate
If you cannot acquire 12 months of historical usage or own 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 Paris
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is essential to shop for a lower rate every year when your contract is about to expire.
Your existing electricity company will normally raise your energy rate once your contract expires. If you do not act, you’ll be left on a month-to-month rate significantly higher than the plan you signed up for.
Before renewing your contract, check the rates of competing energy companies.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars yearly on your energy 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 switch, your new energy company will handle everything, including canceling service with your previous provider.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Paris 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 companies. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can choose any date up to 14 days before your contract ends without an “early termination” penalty. 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.
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.
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 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 must collect the usage history for the past 12 months.
