Switch the Right Way

To determine the best plan for your home, you need to have a clear picture of your energy consumption each month.
Start by finding your previous month’s energy bills or logging into your existing energy company’s website. Jot down how many kilowatt-hours of energy you consumed each month over the past year.
And don’t fret if you can’t locate all 12 months of usage history. Gather as many as possible to get a more accurate picture of your household’s energy consumption.
Where do I find my historical usage data? You can find your usage history data on your previous energy bills or by logging into your energy company’s website.

Switch Energy Providers FAQs
How can I switch providers and save money in Texas?
To determine the best plan for your home, you need to understand how much energy you use in any given month and compare rates with your home’s annual usage profile.
You are likely overpaying for power by comparing energy plans with the advertised teaser rates.
Find the right electricity provider for your home based on your kWh usage, and never overpay for electricity again.
When is the best time to switch electricity providers in Texas?
Don’t make the mistake of letting your current electricity contract expire before switching providers.
When your contract lapses, you’ll be automatically placed on a variable holdover rate, which can be much more expensive when Texas’s energy demand spikes.
While you will receive a renewal notice from your current provider, it’s important to note that renewal rates are rarely the best option. It’s always a good idea to shop around and compare rates from different providers.
How do I know if I am eligible to switch electricity companies?
In Texas, retail electric providers must notify residential customers at least 30 days before a contract expires.
Residents can change providers without being subjected to an early termination fee if the switch occurs no earlier than 14 days before the contract end date specified in the notification.
How long does it take to switch electricity companies?
Generally, the switch should occur on the day you requested it or the day after. If you don’t choose a specific switch date, it will happen after your next scheduled meter read date.
Your old provider will bill you for energy used until the switch, while your new provider will bill you for usage after the switch.
ComparePower offers a “Forward Switch” option so you can select a future date for your switch on the order form, giving you more control over the timing of your switch.
Avoid early termination fees. In Texas, residential customers have a 14-day window to switch electricity providers without incurring an early termination penalty.
If you switch to a new provider at least 14 days before your contract expires, you will not be charged an early termination fee.
Planning and allowing ample time for the switch is best to ensure a smooth process.
At ComparePower, we make switching providers easy and convenient, so you can confidently choose a low rate for your energy needs.
