How to find the best energy plan in Sheffield
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Determining how much electricity you will consume in a month is the best way to shop for power in Sheffield. Why is this so vital?
The rate you see energy companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 1000 kWh).
Every plan has a different calculation for how your monthly statement is calculated, and your monthly bill will change according to how much electricity 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 enrolled.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to select your electricity plan.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on estimated monthly usage, then comparing options by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for your household.
Better yet, 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 determine the perfect electricity rate plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you in an instant. What could take you hours on a spreadsheet is now done in just seconds.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of offers and assist you step-by-step to the energy rate plan that’s best for your household’s usage.
We clarify the details, disclosing all fees and charges, so you’ll know precisely where your money is going and what to expect on your bill.
We then help you in signing-up with your chosen energy provider without leaving our website.
The take away here is you must know your expected or historical usage before picking the best energy 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 shop for the best electricity plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Sheffield: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Sheffield, 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.
Once you have historical usage, ComparePower will do the math instantly to help you find the best plan for your home’s usage pattern.

Switching electricity companies in Sheffield
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is important to shop for a lower price each year when your contract is about to expire.
Your existing electricity company will typically raise your energy 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 check the rates of competing electricity 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 company 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 decide to switch, your new energy provider will handle everything for you including terminating service with your previous company.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Sheffield 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 providers. Therefore the reliability of your service is not affected.
You can choose any date up to 14 days early of your current contract’s end date without an “early termination” penalty. That’s Texas Law.
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.
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 knowing your usage is the best way to find the truly cheapest price.
You will want to find your past usage for the past 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
