How to find the best energy plan in Seabrook
#1 rule: Usage is key!
Knowing how much electricity you will use each month is the ideal way to shop for electricity in Seabrook. Why is this so vital?
The “price per kWh” you see energy companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 2000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different calculation for how your monthly statement is computed, and your monthly bill will change according to how much energy you use in the month.
Unless you match the exact advertised usage 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 shop for electricity plan.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing plans by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for your household.
Even better, if you have an entire year 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 absolute best way to discover the perfect energy rate 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 navigate you step-by-step to the energy rate plan that’s best for your household’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 power provider without ever having to leave our service.
The bottom line is you should determine your expected or historical usage before choosing 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 electricity plan for your specific usage.

Switching electricity companies in Seabrook
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is important to shop for a lower rate each year when your contract is about to expire.
Your existing electricity provider will typically raise your energy rate once your contract expires. If you do not take action, you’ll be left on a month-to-month rate that is significantly higher than the plan you signed up.
Before renewing your contract make sure to check the rates of competing energy companies.
Switching can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars each year 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 decide to switch, your new electricity provider will handle everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Seabrook 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 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” fee. 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.
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 cheapest price.
You will want to find your past usage for the last 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
