How to find the best energy plan in Whitney
#1 rule: Determine what your usage is!
Discovering the amount of electricity you will use each month is the ideal way to shop for energy in Whitney. Why should you care?
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 bill is determined, and your monthly bill will be determined by how much energy you consume in a 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 signed up.
Thankfully, there’s a better way to shop for electricity company.
Calculating your total monthly bill based on expected monthly usage, then comparing rates by total monthly cost, is the best way to shop for the best 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 absolute best way to discover the ideal 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 solved in just seconds.
We put the power in your hands, taking what would amount to hours of investigation, spreadsheets, and computations across hundreds of plans and navigate you step-by-step to the electricity rate plan that’s best for your home’s consumption.
We clarify the details, disclosing the various charges and fees, 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 leaving our service.
The take away here is you should understand your expected or historical usage before picking the best 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.
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 energy plan for your specific usage.

Moving to Whitney: Setting up Electricity
If this is your first time setting up electricity service in Whitney, 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 Whitney
Switching is good. Market conditions are always changing, so it is important to shop for a lower price 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 higher 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 electricity 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 make the switch, your new electricity provider will handle everything for you including canceling service with your previous provider.
Your lights stay on when you switch. Electricity in Whitney 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 pick any date up to 14 days early of your current contract’s end date without an “early termination” penalty. Texas law protects you here.
If you’re still under contract, check 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.
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 knowing your usage is the best way to find the truly cheapest rate.
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.
