How to Find the Best Plano Electricity Plan

There are a few factors you should consider when picking your Plano electricity plan:

1. Your Electricity Usage

Plano electricity rates vary based on your monthly electricity usage. Look at your average electricity usage trends and find which months are higher/lower than usual. Then pick a plan that works best for that usage.

2. The Electricity Rate

Your electricity rate is what you pay per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for electricity. ElectricityRates.com lists your rate at three different usage levels in the “plan details” section (usually 500 kWh, 1,000 kWh, and 2,000 kWh).

3. Plan Type

ElectricityRates.com only offers fixed-rate plans (variable-rate plans almost always cost you more). Among those fixed-rate options, you can get plans with incentives bundled in, plans with 100% renewable energy, and plans with usage credits that go towards your total bill at the end of the month.

4. Plan Length

For fixed-rate plans, the plan length shows how long your rate is locked in. Plano electricity plans can vary anywhere from 3 months to 5 years. Fixed-rate electricity plans sometimes have cancellation fees. However, it’s important to note that locking in a low rate for years can save you a lot on your electricity bills over time.

Moving to Plano and Setting up Electricity

If you have just moved to Plano, you may be wondering how much electricity you will use in your new home so you can get the best electricity plan for you. ElectricityRates.com suggests two methods to find it.

First, ask the original owners/landlord of your home, or your new neighbors. These people may be able to give you an idea of how much electricity you should expect to use. If this is not possible, ElectricityRates.com suggests you pick a short-term plan to get an idea of your usage. After that, you can reevaluate and pick the perfect plan for your usage.

Generally, apartments and small homes use around 500 kWh a month, medium-sized homes use around 1,000 kWh and larger homes can use 2,000 kWh a month.

Plano Power To Choose

In Texas, the “power to choose” can refer to two things. First, it could refer to the deregulated electricity market. This is because it gives Texan’s the “power to choose” their own electricity provider.

However, it may also refer to the state’s electricity shopping platform, powertochoose.org. The site features thousands of plans to choose from. But for some, this can get confusing.

Many Texans choose ElectricityRates.com over powertochoose.org because of its simple and straightforward platform. When you shop through ElectricityRates.com, you can be sure that you are only getting the best rates from leading local providers.

Plano Electricity Providers

There are many providers to choose from in Texas, from smaller local companies to large national providers like Constellation, Direct Energy, and TriEagle Energy.

ElectricityRates.com only works with the best of the best, so there’s no chance of you picking the “wrong” provider. This is done by vetting each highly rated provider and plan to guarantee its integrity. No gimmicks, just great rates.

Plano Business Electricity Rates

When you choose your business electricity provider through ElectricityRates.com you can be sure that you’ll get a business plan designed for you. This means plans that include customized rates, energy bill optimization, and more.

After you complete the business electricity quote request form, an ElectricityRates.com energy advisor gets to work, negotiating with providers to get the best electricity plan for your business. The best part? There’s no obligation to you!
