    How to shop for electricity rates in Plano

    1. Search electricity rates by zip code

    2. Enter your monthly usage.

      Entering your monthly usage quickly brings the cheapest electricity plans to the top of the list. The default for electricity shopping is to assume 2000 kWh per month. But if you have a larger or smaller home, you could use more or less than this. Shopping by usage is especially important if you want to consider bill credit or tiered rate plans. (We recommend basic fixed rate plans for most homes.)

    3. Sort results by “Price: Low to High.”

      With any online shopping, it’s best to shop by low to high to find the best deal.

    4. Determine if you want to screen by type of plan.

      Just like you can filter for size or features when shopping online, you can pick features for your electricity plan. Filter by free electricity, 100% green, basic fixed rate electricity and more.

    5. Pick the cheapest electricity rate for your usage.

      Once you have entered your zip code and usage, you can see what you pay for each rate, both the price per kWh and the energy bill.

    Moving to Plano – Set Up Utilities

    Moving to Plano? 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 Plano 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 Plano 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.

    Estimating electricity usage for your new Plano 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:

    • 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.
    • 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.

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

    You can schedule your electricity in Plano to start up to 60 days out. But if you forget? You can get same day electricity.

    Switching Electricity Providers in Plano

    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!

    We recommend that you shop for a new provider every time your contract expires.

    You can take advantage of the lowest rates from each energy provider. And you will avoid paying an off-contract rate.

    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!

    Almost 1/3 of homes in Plano have a pool, making it the most pool friendly place in Texas. Your pool pump will add to your electricity bill. Consider switching to a variable-speed pool pump. You’ll cut your pool electricity usage substantially.
