Electricity Bills

Navigating the Texas Deregulated Electricity Market in Kaufman, TX

Our goal at Honest Gorilla is to assist you in finding the best electricity rate in Kaufman, TX so you can save money. We’ve put together some useful guides to make the process of switching providers—or signing up for the first time—as simple as possible. 

Greetings and welcome to the first guide in our series about energy switching. In this guide, we will provide you with an overview of the process of learning how to compare electricity plans and providers.

Step 1: Examine Electricity Costs

There are two (2) things you must do to begin your comparison:

  • Keep a recent power bill on hand (if you don’t have it, no worries, you can still continue. It’s just that the results will be generic and not specific to your home and actual usage history).
  • Go to our comparison page for electricity and enter your ZIP code in Kaufman, TX (75142).

Now that you’ve arrived at the comparison page, it’s time to get started on your quest to find lower electricity bills. Here’s what to anticipate:

Calculate Your Monthly Average Usage

  • Depending on the size of your home, choose whether you use an average of 500, 1000, or 2000 kWh.
  • By choosing “Enter Usage History”, you can enter the value for each month if you have your usage history for the previous 12 months. Based on your actual data, the system will automatically determine your average monthly usage.

Select the Kind of Plan

  • Indicate if you want renewable, variable, prepaid, or fixed-rate energy.
  • Select ‘Show All’ to have Honest Gorilla compare all of the available plans, or choose between terms of one and three years.

Examine Prices

  • Honest Gorilla will update the results it displays to you as you make each choice.
  • Make sure to select “Save Changes” after making any changes to the filters when using a mobile device.
  • Look over the deals that are available, based on the details that you submitted, and find possible savings. Price-wise, all results are shown from low to high.
  • Honest Gorilla will compute and graph the results after you choose a plan. In this manner, you’ll be able to see an approximate monthly cost estimate for energy expenses (excluding taxes and fees). Honest Gorilla is the only one with this feature.

Step 2: Click the ‘Sign Me Up’ button and Register

After selecting the best offer, you can enroll in a new electricity plan. It is necessary for you to:

Provide your billing and service address

  • Type in the Kaufman, TX service address (ZIP Code 75142) where electricity will be required. You will receive your ESIID once it has been determined that your address is serviceable.
  • Indicate if your service address and billing address are the same or different.

Choose the type of service connection you need.

  • You should indicate whether you would like to request a new service or a provider switch, depending on whether you are a new or existing resident of  Kaufman.
  • You can designate the day if you have a specific date in mind for the activation or switchover of your service.

Provide your personal contact information

  • Please enter your name, contact information, personal identification information, and any other required information.
  • All applicants will undergo a soft credit check, and if qualified, they may be asked to pay an interest-bearing security deposit.

Verify and submit

  • Complete any remaining fields, accept the terms and conditions of the selected electricity provider and plan, and submit your order.
  • If you require assistance at any time, our comprehensive guide on how to transfer electricity providers in Texas will offer more details.

Step 3: Should You Rethink Your Decision

Don’t worry if, within three (3) days of submitting your enrollment, you decide to change your mind. During this time of cooling off, you can cancel without incurring any fees. Remember that you will owe an early termination fee if you choose to end your service after this window of time or if you decide to transfer while still under contract with your current provider. This could be a fixed monthly payment of $15 to $20 for each month left on your contract, or depending on the type of contract you have, $200 to $400. 

See our comprehensive article to learn more about cancellation fees for electricity.
