How to find the best energy plan in Penitas
#1 rule: Usage is key!
Knowing how much energy you will consume each month is the best way to shop for energy in Penitas. Why should you care?
The rate you see energy providers advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 2000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different equation for how your monthly bill is determined, and your monthly bill will change according to how much electricity you consume 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 ordered.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to shop for energy provider.
Calculating your total monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing plans 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 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 find the right energy rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you instantly. What takes hours on a spreadsheet is now solved 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 plans and navigate you step-by-step to the electricity plan that’s best for your home’s usage.
We clarify the fine print, disclosing the various charges and fees, so you’ll know precisely where your money is going and what to expect on your bill.
We then help you in ordering your plan with your chosen energy provider without ever having to leave our website.
The bottom line is you must know your expected or historical usage before ordering the right electricity 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.

Switching electricity companies in Penitas
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is important to shop for a lower rate each year when your contract is close to expiring.
Your existing electricity company will typically raise your energy rate once your term expires. If you do not 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 call your current provider 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 make the switch, your new electricity company will take care of everything for you including canceling service with your previous provider.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Penitas 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 choose any date within 14 days of your contract expiration date without an “early cancellation” 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.
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.
For help with this, you can send us your latest energy bill via email, and one of our professional team members will contact you shortly to discuss 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 rate.
You will want to find your historical usage for the past 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.

A residential customer or applicant may be deemed as having established satisfactory credit if:
- The customer has been a customer of any REP or an electric utility within the two years prior to the request for electric service; is not delinquent in payment of any such electric service account, and during the last 12 consecutive months of service was not late in paying a bill more than once.
- The customer or applicant possesses a satisfactory credit rating obtained through a consumer reporting agency, as defined by the Federal Trade Commission.
- The customer or applicant is 65 years of age or older and the customer is not currently delinquent in payment of any electric service account.
- The customer or applicant has been determined to be a victim of family violence.
- The customer is medically indigent.
The requirements above are directly from the Texas Public Utility Commission §25.478 – Credit Requirements and Deposits.
Note: For any of the situations above, you must first complete your order an energy plan on ComparePower before you can obtain a waiver for your deposit.
After you’ve placed your order, you will receive an email with instructions as well as contact information for your new energy company.
Important: You must send your waiver information by email, phone, fax or mail to your new energy company (not to ComparePower).
As soon as your energy company receives your documentation, they will let you know that they’ve sent a request for your energy service to begin.
Remember, your energy company will not start your electric service until you satisfy any deposit requirement (you pay or receive a waiver).
If you have any questions on deposit waivers, you can contact us. One of our team members will get back to you as soon as possible.
