Get The Honest Truth With Honest Gorilla

Sure, you're "just" shopping for electricity. But there's some things you may not be aware of.

Many of Honest Gorilla's competitors rank high in search by offering teaser rates and plans that are gimmicky

Energy providers offer tricky teaser rates to rank higher online.

Shopping websites are notorious for displaying energy-only rates and, unlike Honest Gorilla, are not fully transparent in what is their true-cost of electricity per kWh

Shopping sites display energy-only rates, leaving out hidden fees.

Concierge services offer convenience in the short-run, but who wants to give their SSN and credit card information to a complete stranger without knowing if they're even getting a good deal

Concierge services offer what’s best for them, not catered to you.

Customer who don't used Honest Gorilla's free plan comparison service often find themselves overpaying for electricity

Customers overspend an average of up to 40% each year.

Most frequent questions and answers

If you can provide a forwarding address where you are moving to, then you can get out of your contract without any penalties. This is to prevent folks from cancelling for convenience.

Many factors influence electricity usage and costs. We can estimate it for you by answering some questions, or sign up for free at Smart Meter Texas to access 12 months of usage history and plug in your data to get a good estimate for your unit costs. Of course, this does not account for lifestyle differences between you and the previous tenant.

Enter your zip code below and the system will automatically determine your utility company. And signing up for service is just as easy — follow the prompts, choose the best plan for you and your lifestyle, and within minutes you’ll be signed up and ready to go. 

Security deposits vary by provider based on credit. We offer no-deposit options for low/no credit. Switching is free unless you want to expedite or pick your start date.

You may contact or visit your local utility company online to report an outage and check its status. For all other electrical issues, contact your property management company.

Make choosing an electricity plan the easiest thing you do.
