How to find the best energy plan in Petronila
#1 rule: Usage is king!
Knowing the amount of energy you will use each month is the ideal way to shop for electricity in Petronila. Why is this so vital?
The rate you see electricity companies 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 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 what you observed when you enrolled.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to pick your power provider.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on expected monthly usage, then comparing options by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for you.
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 perfect energy 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 seconds.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of offers and assist you step-by-step to the electricity rate plan that’s best for your home’s usage.
We clarify the fine print, disclosing all fees and charges, so you’ll know exactly where your money is going and what to expect on your bill.
We then help you in signing-up with your selected electricity company without ever having to leave our service.
The take away 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 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 electricity plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Petronila: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Petronila, 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.

Switching electricity companies in Petronila
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is essential to shop for a lower rate each year when your contract is close to expiring.
Your existing electricity company will normally raise your electricity 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 energy bill.
Switching is easy:
- You don’t have to contact 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 energy provider will handle everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Petronila 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 companies. 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 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 best 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.
