How to choose the best electricity plan in Texas

Selecting an Our Energy 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.

Our Energy customer service & bill payment 

Customers of Our Energy can pay their bills, review energy usage, and read knowledge documents through their online accounts. Each bill available through an online account details charges, historical usage, and contract details. To establish an account, a customer needs an account number, zip code, email, and login information. The company’s Quick Pay option allows a user to input account number, zip code, and phone to expedite bill payments.

Our Energy highlights their same-day move capabilities on its website. The company notes that they can handle expedited switches as well as account transfers outside of the usual meter reading cycle.

Customers can also use dedicated email addresses for customer service, billing, and complaints to submit their requests. The company does not handle utility requests but maintains contact information for local utility providers in case of service issues. Our Energy also engages with customers via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+.

 

Our Energy reviews

Looking for ratings and reviews for Our Energy?

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.
