Whether you’re moving to a new home in Dallas or your current energy contract is ending soon, the challenge of finding a new electric company can be pretty daunting. Don’t get scared away just yet, though. We’ve compiled a handy 5-step guide to finding the best electric company in Dallas for you. Before we get to that, though, let’s have a look at why you might be switching energy providers and what your Dallas electricity options are.

What Electric Company Services My Area?

There are lots of electric companies that service most areas of Dallas. Luckily, it’s pretty simple to find out if an electricity provider works in your area. All you’ll need is to put your zip code into the provider’s website (you can do this on the Rhythm website). They’ll let you know if your address is part of an area they cover; if it is, they might include some recommended electricity plans.

How to Choose a New Electricity Provider in Dallas

With so many electric companies in Dallas, it might seem easier to just play pin-the-tail-on-the-energy-provider to choose, but have no fear – here are five easy steps to finding a new energy provider.

1. Know Your Current Electricity Bill and Plan

Before you can get a better energy plan, you need to know precisely what you’re working with. Get your magnifying glass ready because there’s going to be an awful lot of fine print. Unfortunately, lots of energy companies hide their least favorable terms and conditions in blocks of hard-to-read text. As you scour the pages of your energy plan, make sure to look for the following:

  • Monthly usage

  • Fixed or variable rate

  • Rate per kilowatt hour

  • Renewable or nonrenewable sources

  • Contract end date

  • Cancellation fee

2. Compare Dallas Electricity Rates and Fees

So, now that you know what your current electricity plan entails, it’s time to start comparing Dallas electricity rates and fees. Now, you could create a digital spreadsheet, do a bunch of research, and try to figure out how to put in all the information you find and somehow have a readable document. But that sounds like a ton of work. Instead, Rhythm has done the work for you. You can compare our electricity rates and fees with those of the Big Four Texas energy companies to see which one has no hidden fees. (Spoiler alert: it’s us).

3. Check Reviews and Ask for Recommendations

How an electric company looks on paper and how it performs in the real world may not actually line up, so it’s a good idea to check out what real people are saying about them. Look at reviews to get a feeling for how the electric provider interacts with customers and what the most common complaints are. Don’t forget to ask friends and family if they love their electricity provider or not, especially if they live in your area of Dallas.

4. Find the Right Electricity Plan in Dallas

In the world of energy, there’s no silver-bullet solution that’ll work for everyone. Instead, you need to know your specific electricity usage if you want to get the best plan. If you’re not sure how much energy you’re using and when you might end up overpaying on bills each month.

Before you pick an energy plan or electric provider, make sure you know how much electricity you used on average during the last year, whether you want a fixed or variable rate, how long you’ll need a contract for, and whether or not the energy company you pick offers renewable energy plans.

5. Don’t Forget the Perks

What happens if you’ve found two nearly identical energy plans? It’s time to look at the perks. We believe our customers deserve an honest and straightforward relationship, so we offer Rewards Points without a catch. We don’t offer free nights and weekends, only to spike rates the rest of the hours of the day. With Rhythm Rewards, you earn credits toward your electricity bill, just for things like signing up for Auto Pay or choosing Paperless. Learn more about the perks at Rhythm!

Try Us Out, worry-free

We’re so sure you’ll love us that we let you try us out for 30 days. If you aren’t in love with Rhythm by then, we’ll let you walk away, without the penalty, plus no hard feelings.

No Hidden Fees

Have we mentioned that we don’t hide our fees? They’re all out in the open, right where they should be.

  • We charge a late fee if your payment is past due and a fee if there are insufficient funds in your account.

  • We charge a fee if you leave us after your first 30 days, but before your contract is up.

  • We pass fees along, without markup, if your wires provider charges fees for use of the power grid.

  • We charge you a disconnect transaction fee if Rhythm disconnects you for non-payment.

That's it. Those are the fees.

We Don’t Play Favorites

Ever had an energy company lured you in with low electricity rates, only to bump them up when you renew, passing on the savings to the next new customer that comes along? At Rhythm, we don’t play favorites. We give all our new and renewing customers the same incredible rates, no matter what.

We’ll Cover the Switch

Is your old provider holding you hostage with early cancellation or switching fees? We’ll take care of that. When you sign up, you can get up to $150 in Bill Credits to cover the fee.

Rewards Points

Getting Rewards Points is easy. You can sign up for autopay, sign up for Paperless, or refer a friend – or do all three! And then refer another friend! There are no limits to how many points you can earn, so take advantage and lower your bill.
