    Moving to Arlington – Set Up Utilities

    You can easily shop online to find power prices in Plano. Follow the steps above to find the best electricity rate for your home. Here are a few more things to consider when moving.

    If you are moving within Arlington or moving from another area of DFW, you can easily transfer your electricity service to your new home. Check electricity rates before you do that. If new rates are lower, you can use your move as a way to cancel your contract with no penalty and get a new provider. If your current electricity contract gives you a lower price, transfer your contract to your new home. You can schedule a transfer of service via your online account portal or on the phone.

    If you are moving to Arlington from out of the area, you’ll need to pick an electricity provider. Oncor, the local utility company, will deliver power to your home. But the power company you pick will be your electricity company.

    During enrollment, select that you are moving in to a new home, called a “move-in.” Then pick the date you want service.

    Same day electricity is available in Arlington. But planning ahead removes the stress. You can schedule your move-in up to 60 days in advance.

    Estimating electricity usage for your new Arlington home

    You may be able to ask the prior owner or occupant for the historical electricity usage or average usage for the home. If you can’t get that information, here are some assumptions you can use when you’re comparing energy rates:

    • The average electricity bill for a typical Texas home is 1200 kWh a month.
    • You can estimate your electricity usage by assuming 7 kWh annually per square foot. Then divide the total by 12 for your monthly average.

    Apartment electricity in Arlington

    If you’re moving into an apartment in Arlington, you will need to get electricity set up in your own name before you move-in. Your apartment manager may want to see proof of electricity service before you get the keys. You can sign up for electricity on ElectricityPlans.com and get your proof of service in 10 minutes of less.

    Here’s the electricity usage for a typical apartment in Arlington.

    • If you have a 1 bedroom apartment, you’ll use around 500 kWh a month.
    • If you have a 2 bedroom apartment, use 1000 kWh a month when shopping for rates.

    Switching Electricity Providers in Arlington

    There are two things that we’ve seen over the years regarding electricity shopping:

    1. Electricity providers usually save their best rates for new customers. There’s very little reward for loyalty.
    2. The highest rate you’ll pay for your electricity bill is when you forget to shop for a new electricity plan!

    Because of these two things, we recommend that you shop for a new provider every time your contract expires.

    When you shop every time your electricity contract expires, you can be assured you have the lowest rates available. Plus ElectricityPlans has exclusive rates with a number of electricity providers. These are rates lower than what you’ll find on the provider site!

    Switching is easy to do and takes less than 10 minutes to complete your enrollment. There’s no need to contact your old provider. Your new energy company takes care of everything!
