Get to know energy choice in Plano

Plano, Texas is located roughly 20 miles north of Dallas and has a population of almost 290,000. The town was incorporated in 1873, just one year after the completion of the Houston and Central Texas Railway. The population at the time was a bustling 500 people. It wasn't until the late 20th century that the population of Plano began to explode. In 1994, it was recognized as an All-American City while in 2013, Plano was recognized as the best city to live in the U.S. on two seperate "Best of" lists.

With energy deregulation in Texas came the power for consumers to choose their electricity provider. It also brought many different providers and plans onto the market. Atlas can help Plano residents plot a course to savings, with a custom algorithm that recommends the best fit, at no cost to you.

How Atlas compares Plano electric plans

Energy choice has helped some consumers save on their energy bills, but it has also made the process of choosing Plano electricity plans extremely complicated. A few examples:

  • When you consider that the average electricity usage in Texas in August 2019 was 1,664 kWh it becomes more important to consider the daily fluctuations in electricity prices. Some plans protect you from these changes, but others don't.
  • Texas weather can cause huge variations in energy costs. In April 2019 the average Texas bill was $95, but in August 2019 the average bill more than doubled to $196.
  • Because of bill credits and usage tiers, some plans charge more for using 999 kWh than for 1,000 kWh usage.

Atlas was built to help our users get reasonable prices for the long term, by showing you only plans that will work under all of these conditions and more. With a free Atlas account, we can keep working for you even after you choose a plan to make sure you stay on track for savings.

How Atlas is different

There are many energy marketplaces for Texas residents, but Atlas was created to be different. Our proprietary algorithm compares the information you give us against multiple plans under different conditions. It looks at the big picture to make the right decision. That means you don't only get the best rate for, but also for next month and next year.

Our algorithm works best when you give us complete information, but if you aren't comfortable telling us something we'll never force it. We want to give you exactly the help you need on your own terms. We’ll show you a map of the year ahead with the savings you can expect.
