Compare Electricity Rates from Trusted Energy Providers

Which is the best energy provider with the cheapest rate?

The best energy provider and plan for you may not be the best for someone who lives in a different size home and has different energy usage patterns. Enter your zip code to compare electricity rates and plans for your home size from the most trusted energy providers (also called electricity companies, energy suppliers and light companies).

The actual price you pay depends on an energy plan’s rates charged for your home’s monthly energy usage level, and taking into account bill credits and other variables.

You can conveniently find your usage history at Smart Meter Texas. And you should always carefully review the Electricity Facts Label for any plan you’re considering to make sure it’s a fit for your home.

Compare home energy suppliers for your zip code

Why compare electricity rates on Home Energy Club?

  • We’re free, trusted and vet each energy plan to protect you from bill surprises using TrustPlan™
  • Compare electricity rates in Texas with just your zip code and use our guides to choose the best plan for your home
  • We use our bargaining power to get you special deals (filter for “special discount rates” on our home page)

Home Energy Club is a free service that vets each energy plan using TrustPlan™. We use our bargaining power to get you a better price that in many cases is lower than what you’ll find on the provider’s own site. The energy providers pay us a modest fee to appear on our site, which is built into their discount rates. Our objective price comparison service in Texas helps you compare energy plans and rates, and switch your energy provider to cut your electricity bill.

How to run an energy rate comparison with Home Energy Club?

We can help you find the best energy rates for energy providers in your zip code — just follow these simple steps to compare electricity rates from the best electric companies in Texas:

  1. Enter your Texas zip code
  2. Review the energy plans
  3. Use our filter to narrow your search for brands, term length and other preferences
  4. You’ll see the cheapest energy rates which have been vetted to help you avoid bill surprises
  5. Enroll in the plan that suits you
  6. Relax, you’ve switched! Easy as that!

Why should I compare energy rates and switch?

If you haven’t shopped electricity plans recently, it’s doubtful that you’re getting the best deal for your zip code. Because of our bargaining power, Home Energy Club receives discount pricing for its customers from the electricity providers most Texans get their energy from, so why pay more?

There’s no energy plan that’s “one size fits all”, so it’s important to run an electricity plan comparison based on your preferences and home’s energy usage. Each plan’s Electricity Facts Label will help you make a better choice and the Smart Meter Texas meter usage site will make your work fast and more convenient.

We can help you find the lowest electricity rates from the most trusted energy providers in the fastest time. And we vet each plan to help you avoid gimmicks that cause bill surprises.

How can I get the best electricity rate?

To find the cheapest electricity rate for your home you’ll need to shop around when your current plan has ended. If you allow your current contract to expire without renewing or switching to another plan, you’ll almost always pay for the most expensive type of plan your current provider offers.

The odds are high that you’ll find a cheaper energy rate in minutes on Home Energy Club due to the discount rates offered by most energy providers on our site. Simply enter your zip code and search for a cheap deal.

It’s possible you won’t need to switch from your current energy provider, but it makes sense to confirm if you could get a better rate on every kilowatt hour you burn — it adds up fast.

Energy Comparison FAQs

How do I use Home Energy Club to switch electricity?

There are two easy ways to compare energy deals with Home Energy Club (HEC) — and all of them are completely free (the energy providers pay us a small fee which is built into their discount rates):

  1. Enter your zip code on this page or go to the home page to compare plans
  2. See the comparison grid below and click on the name of the plans that interest you for details
  3. Call the phone number of the energy provider whose plan you wish to discuss and speak directly with their operator

What happens once I’ve switched electricity providers?

Home Energy Club is a free service that helps you to find low rates on trusted energy plans that have been vetted. Once you click on the signup button and enroll in a plan or call an operator to enroll you, your new energy provider will take care of the rest. You will then receive an email from your new electricity supplier confirming your switch and other details. There won’t be any interruption in your electricity supply.

How long does it take to switch to a new energy supplier?

It only takes less than 10 minutes to enroll in a new energy plan if you have your contact information and identification information available, and know the date you wish for the switch to occur.

Why is my Texas electricity bill so high?

Your electricity bills are in large part dependent on usage, which can be impacted by the weather and energy efficiency of your home, but there are other reasons your bills might have gone up recently:

  1. Your fixed price plan ended:
    A fixed price plan protects you against price increases. When these plans end, if you don’t renew or switch to another plan and contract, most energy providers will automatically enroll you into a variable rate plan at a much higher rate, usually their most expensive type of plan.
  2. Your energy supplier has raised rates:
    If you’re on a variable (non-fixed) rate plan, your electric company can raise rates every month. Be careful about energy plans that sell you electricity at “wholesale prices” at floating rates, because you may get a summer bill surprise that will drain your bank account.

Can I switch energy if I’m renting?

It depends. Some apartments and condos allow tenants to choose their own electric company, while others include the cost of electricity in the rent.

What’s the difference between a fixed rate contract and a variable rate tariff?

When you run an energy comparison on Home Energy Club, you’ll be able to choose fixed rate plans and variable rate plans. Fixed rate contracts are typically for term lengths of 12, 24, 36 and sometimes 60 months, and they lock in your rate for the term of the contract. Variable rate contracts float according to the ups and downs of wholesale energy prices.

How do I know I’m choosing best energy supplier?

The best electric company for you won’t necessarily be the cheapest one. Home Energy Club protects you from signing up with energy providers who have bad reputations for causing bill surprises by simply not allowing them on the site. We also vet each plan from trustworthy energy providers to help you avoid the gimmicks that sometime show up in their plans.
