How to find the best energy plan in Weslaco
#1 rule: Determine what your usage is!
Determining the amount of energy you will consume month-to-month is the ideal way to find a deal on energy in Weslaco. Why should you care?
The “price per kWh” you see power companies advertising is for an exact monthly usage (typically 2000 kWh).
Every plan uses a different calculation for how your monthly statement is calculated, and your monthly bill will change according to how much energy 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.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to pick your electricity plan.
Calculating your total monthly bill based on anticipate monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly bill, is the best way to shop for the best rate for you.
Better still, 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 ideal way to find the right electricity plan for your home.
ComparePower does all this math for you instantly. What could take you hours on a spreadsheet is now solved in a few seconds.
We put you in the driver’s seat, taking what would amount to hours of research, spreadsheets, and calculations across hundreds of offers and assist you step-by-step to the electricity rate plan that’s best for your home’s consumption.
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 monthly bill.
We then assist you in ordering your plan with your selected electricity company without leaving our service.
The take away here is you should know your expected or historical usage before ordering the right 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.
While not as optimal as having all previous 12-months of usage, estimating your average usage is better than blindly picking the first plan you see advertised by an energy company at a specific usage that isn’t what you’ll consume.
Use ComparePower to shop for the best energy plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Weslaco: Setting up Electricity

Switching electricity companies in Weslaco
Switching is good. Market conditions are always in flux, so it is important to shop for a lower rate every year when your contract is about to expire.
Your existing electricity company will normally 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 providers.
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 power supply
- It takes just minutes
When you decide to switch, your new energy provider will take care of everything for you including terminating service with your previous company.
There is no loss of power when you switch. Electricity in Weslaco 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 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.
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 lowest price.
You will want to gather your past usage for the past 12 months to determine the best plan with the lowest rate for your household.
