How to Find the Best Garland Electricity Plan

When comparing Garland electricity plans, there are a few factors you should consider:

Your Electricity Usage

Texas electricity plans vary based on your monthly usage, so it’s important to understand it. Look over your electricity bills from the last 12 months to find trends and calculate your average monthly electricity usage. Also, note months that are higher/lower than usual. Then, pick a plan based on that usage.

The Electricity Rate

Your electricity rate is what you pay per kilowatt-hour for electricity. You can find the rate at three different usage levels for any plan on ElectricityRates.com in the “plan details” section.

Plan Type

ElectricityRates.com only offers fixed-rate plans (variable-rate plans almost always cost you more). Among ElectricityRates.com’s fixed-rate plans, there are options with 100% renewable energy, plans with incentives bundled in with them, and plans with usage credits.

Plan Length

Electricity plans can be as short as 3 months and as long as 5 years. Every plan on ElectricityRates.com provides you with the length so you know up front how long your rate is locked in.

If you cancel before the end of your contract, there may be a cancellation fee. However, long-term plans can keep you locked in at a low rate for years and save you money.

Moving to Garland and Setting up Electricity

If you have just moved to the Garland area, you should check out ElectricityRates.com’s comprehensive Texas electricity guide. It will teach you everything you need to know to find the best electricity rate for your location.

A problem that new Texas residents have when choosing an electricity plan is not knowing their average electricity usage in advance. As stated above, this is an important aspect to consider when picking an electricity plan. To find it, ElectricityRates.com suggests one of the following two methods.

First, you can try to ask the original owners of the home, your landlord and/or your neighbors. All three of these resources may be able to give you an idea of how much electricity you will use.

However, if this is not an option, you can pick a short-term electricity plan. After it is over, you can find a longer-term plan that works for your usage.

Garland Power To Choose

When someone talks about the “power to choose” in Texas, they are likely referring to one of two things.

First, it may refer to the deregulated electricity market in Texas, since it gives residents the “power to choose” their own electricity provider.

However, it can also refer to powertochoose.org. This is the state’s electricity comparison platform and there are thousands of options available. The only issue is, the wide variety of options can get confusing.

In fact, that’s the main reason why many choose ElectricityRates.com over powertochoose.org. With ElectricityRates.com’s simple and straightforward platform, finding a great electricity rate from a reputable provider near you is effortless.

Garland Electricity Providers

In Texas, there are many providers to choose from. They range from smaller local companies to large national providers like Constellation, Direct Energy and TriEagle Energy.

ElectricityRates.com only works with leading, highly rated providers so you don’t have to worry about choosing the wrong one. It does this by vetting each provider to ensure they are upfront and honest with their plans.

In other words, all of the guesswork is taken out of it. All you have to do is type in your zip code, find the best plan and enroll.

Garland Business Electricity Rates

Businesses can save a lot through electricity deregulation. If you have a business in Garland, your usage will largely determine the electricity rates available to you.

After filling out the business electricity quote request form, an energy advisor will negotiate with providers to get a plan designed specifically for your commercial business. The best part is that there’s no obligation to you.

Other Texas Utilities That Offer Energy Choice

Texas residents with Oncor are not the only Texans with the power to choose. Three other Texas utilities also offer energy choice.

  • CenterPoint Energy – CenterPoint Energy serves Houston and the surrounding areas.
