How to find the best energy plan in Thornton
#1 rule: Know Your Usage!
Discovering how much energy you will consume month-to-month is the ideal way to shop for power in Thornton. Why should you care?
The rate you see power companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (usually 2000 kWh).
Every plan has a different calculation for how your monthly bill is computed, and your monthly bill will vary depending on how much electricity you use in each 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 ordered.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to pick your electricity provider.
Calculating your expected monthly bill based on anticipate monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the lowest rate for you.
Better yet, if you have an entire year 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 ideal way to determine the right electricity 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 a few seconds.
We put the power in your hands, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of offers and navigate you step-by-step to the energy plan that’s best for your household’s usage.
We clarify the details, disclosing the various charges and fees, so you’ll know precisely where your money is going and what to anticipate on your monthly bill.
We then help you in ordering your plan with your selected energy provider without leaving our service.
The take away here is you must know your expected or historical usage before picking the right electricity 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.
While not as optimal as having all previous 12-months of usage, estimating your average usage is better than blindly choosing the first plan you see advertised by an energy company at a specific usage that isn’t what you’ll consume.
Use ComparePower to find the best energy plan for your specific usage.

Switching electricity companies in Thornton
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is important to shop for a lower rate every year when your contract is about to expire.
Your existing electricity provider will normally raise your electricity rate once your contract 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 shop the rates of competing electricity companies.
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 electricity supply
- It takes just minutes
When you make the switch, your new electricity provider will take care of everything for you including canceling service with your previous company.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Thornton 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 pick any date within 14 days of your contract expiration date without an “early cancellation” fee. 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 providers 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 rate.
You will want to gather your historical usage for the past 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
