Navigating The Texas Deregulated Electricity Market

Honest Gorilla aims to help Coppell, TX residents find the best power plans and save money. We’ve compiled helpful guidelines to manage the switching process (or to sign up for the first time).

Welcome to the first installment of our series on the energy-switching process. This page provides an overview of comparing and switching electricity plans, with links to detailed instructions to assist you along the way.

At the end of this page, you’ll find tips on reducing your power bills. After all, who wants to pay more for electricity than necessary?

Step 1: Differentiate Electricity Prices

To start your comparison, you need to:

  • Keep your latest electricity bill handy.
  • Enter your ZIP code in Coppell, TX in the search bar (75006, 75019, 75063, and 75099).

On the comparison page, you can search for lower power costs. Here’s what to expect:

1. Determine Your Average Monthly Usage

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

2. Select The Type of Plan

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

3. Compare Prices

  • As you make each selection, Honest Gorilla will adjust the displayed results. If you are browsing on a mobile device, click ‘Save Changes’ after changing any 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 your expected monthly energy costs (excluding taxes and fees).

Step 2: Make The Switch And Sign Up

Once you’ve found the best deal, you can sign up for your new electricity plan. To do this, you must:

1. Provide the service & billing address

  • Provide your service address in Coppell, Texas, where you need power.
  • Once your address is verified, you’ll be assigned an ESIID.
  • Specify if your billing and service addresses are the same or different.

2. Determine your service connection type

  • Whether you’re a current Coppell, TX resident or new to the area, indicate whether you wish to transfer providers or seek new services.
  • You can schedule the activation or switching of your service on a specific date.

3. Enter personal information

  • Fill out your name, contact information, personal details, and any other requested information.
  • All applicants will undergo a mild credit check, and if required, you might need to provide an interest-bearing security deposit.

4. Confirm and submit

  • Answer any remaining questions, accept the terms and conditions of the chosen power supplier and plan, and submit your order.
  • If you need more information, our step-by-step tutorial on how to switch electricity suppliers in Texas will be useful.

Step 3: If You Change Your Mind

If you change your mind within three (3) days of submitting your enrollment, you can cancel for free during the cooling-off period. If you cancel after this deadline or switch while under contract with your current provider, you may face an early termination fee. Therefore, this fee could be a flat monthly rate (around $15-$20) or between $200 and $400.
