How to choose the best electricity plan in Texas

Selecting a Volterra 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.

Volterra Energy residential plans

Volterra Energy’s residential energy plans are available in contract lengths from 12 months to 36 months. In addition to a charitable donation, new customers can receive bill credits when completing their application on select plans. Volterra Energy features several plans that generate 100% of their electricity from renewable energy sources. Customers who cancel their contracts prior to expiration can expect to pay termination fees of $150 to $300.

 

Volterra Energy commercial plans

Volterra Energy does not publish plans or sample bills for commercial clients on its website. The Commercial section of the Volterra Energy site features a contact form including address, estimated usage, and space for a file upload for a prior utility billing. Once the form is submitted, a customer service representative works with the applicant on a customized energy plan based on the company’s needs.

To find the best commercial electricity rates, you need to compare prices from competing energy companies. ComparePower bridges the gap between your business and energy companies by inviting various energy providers to compete for your business in a sealed bid process.

You submit your information once and the providers will present their bids.  You to choose the cheapest price.  Simple, quick, and easy.

Volterra Energy reviews

Looking for ratings and reviews for Volterra 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.
