Navigating The Texas Deregulated Electricity Market in Mesquite, TX

Honest Gorilla’s goal is to help Mesquite, TX residents get the best deals on electricity and save money. We’ve compiled a list of helpful guidelines to help you understand the switching process (or sign up for the first time) and make the best decision for you and your family.

Thanks for coming to the first installment of our series on the energy-switching process. This page provides an overview of the comparing and switching process, with links to more specific instructions to assist you along the way.

At the conclusion of this page, you’ll find a list of helpful tips on how to cut your power bills. After all, who wants to spend more for power than is necessary?

Step 1: Differentiate Electricity Prices

To start your comparison, you are required to perform two things:

  • Grab your latest electricity bill.
  • Enter your ZIP Code in Mesquite, TX on our electricity comparison page (75149, 75150, 75181, 75182, 75185, 75187).

When you’re on the comparison page, you can start looking for reduced power costs. Here’s what you may expect:

1. Determine Your Average Monthly Usage

  • Depending on the size of your home, choose whether you use 500, 1000, or 2000 kWh on average.
  • If you have your home’s 12-month consumption data, pick ‘Enter Usage History’ to input the figure for each month. The algorithm will calculate your average monthly use according to your actual data.

2. Select The Type of Plan

  • Specify if you prefer a fixed-rate, variable-rate, prepaid, or green energy plan.
  • Choose from one to 36-month periods, or just click ‘Show All’ to have Honest Gorilla assess all available alternatives for the Mesquite, TX area.

3. Compare Prices

  • As you make each pick, Honest Gorilla will adjust the results it displays. If you are browsing on a mobile device, make sure to click ‘Save Changes’ after changing any of the criteria.
  • Review the list of possible deals based on the information you provided to identify potential savings.
  • All results are ordered by price, from low to high.
  • Honest Gorilla evaluates and graphs outcomes based on your chosen strategy. This calculator estimates how much you may expect to pay for energy expenditures each month (apart from taxes and fees).

Step 2: Make the Switch and Sign Up

Once you’ve decided on the best bargain, you may sign up for your new electricity plan. To accomplish this, you must:

1. Provide the service & billing address

  • Provide your service address in Mesquite, Texas, where you will need power.
  • When it is determined that your address is functional, you will be assigned an ESIID.
  • Please specify if your billing and service addresses are similar or different.

2. Determine your service connection type

3. Enter personal information

  • Fill out your name, contact information, personal identifying details, and any other requested information.
  • All candidates will be subjected to a mild credit check, and if eligible, you might have to offer an interest-bearing security deposit.

4. Confirm and submit

Step 3: If You Change Your Mind

If you change your mind within three (3) days of submitting your enrollment, don’t be concerned. During the cooling-off time, you have the option to cancel for free.

Keep in mind that if you cancel after this deadline or switch while still under contract with your current provider, you may face an early termination fee. Depending on the type of contract, there could be a flat monthly price (about $15-$20) or a fee between $200 and $400.
