Having TrueCost import your home's actual usage data will usually be the most accurate
way to estimate the cost of any electric plan. When that's not an option, you can shop by estimated usage using a home profile or by a standard usage profile developed by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT).
For the home profile estimate, you complete a short questionnaire about your home. This lets TrueCost to match it with homes of similar profiles and provide you with estimated costs of the various plans that you are considering.
We also use the standardized load profiles recommended by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) for each region. They provide a usage quantity for each month that reflects the seasonal heating and cooling demand. For more information about the monthly volumes, click here
