American Light & Power electric choice in Texas

The energy market in Texas was operated by geographic monopolies until 2002. With a deregulated market, retail energy companies are free to sell their services wherever they please. That means that there are hundreds of providers competing for your business. This drives prices down and gives you the power to choose.

Although this may sound like an insurmountable task, ComparePower is here to help. It is a no-cost consumer service that has been around since 2009 and it is dedicated to helping you get the lowest possible rates for electricity. ComparePower knows there has never been a better time to shop for a new energy provider and they do the work so you don’t have to.

Hours of calculations and research go into the rates that ComparePower displays on its site. They even know about hidden fees and factor in that information so that you can compare each rate and plan “apples to apples.”

How to choose the best electricity plan in Texas

Selecting an American Light & Power plan without knowing your home’s energy usage can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars.

The #1 most important thing: Know your usage!

The key to avoid overpaying is knowing your expected usage and comparing monthly costs for each plan based on that usage amount.

With things like gasoline, the “price per gallon” you see on the sign is the price you pay no matter how many gallons you pump.

$3 per gallon. Pump 10 gallons, pay $30. Simple.

Electricity in Texas is not as simple as buying gasoline. The advertised “price per kWh” is based on a specific, exact monthly usage (usually 2000 kWh).

And, each plan has a different calculation for how your monthly bill is determined.

Your effective “price per kWh” can only be determined by calculating your monthly bill, then dividing that monthly bill by your usage.

Advertised “price per kWh” can be misleading because it’s based on a specific usage like 2000 kWh. It’s best to shop based on the total bill for your home’s expected usage.

How do you do that when the math is complicated, and every plan is a little different?

ComparePower has already done all this complicated math for you.

First, we help you determine your expected monthly kWh usage. Then we show you the plans and their total monthly cost for your usage.

American Light & Power reviews

Looking for ratings and reviews for American Light and Power?

Several companies rate electricity providers. ComparePower does not include customer reviews as they are generally biased or easy to manipulate and skew one way or the other (positive or negative).

Often, a review is requested a mere few days after enrolling in a new energy plan, which may not be an adequate amount of time for a customer to experience the product or service.

Many customers who take the time to leave feedback typically do so as an effort to resolve a problem and are using negative feedback as a forum to draw attention to their issue.

Customers who leave positive reviews are generally incentivized to do so and therefore tend to be biased.

So what are we left with?  There are a few long-standing customer review portals that attempt to remove bias. One of these is the Better Business Bureau and the other is the Public Utility Commision of Texas.
