About Texas Electricity Ratings
Where Y'all From?
That's right. We don't use fancy linking verbs like "are." We're from Texas! HOT DAMN! We live here, we work here, we've been in the Texas Electricity business since 2001. That's over 20 years of seeing rates go up and down. We've been through a couple hurricanes, (anyone remember Alicia? - yeah we've been here that long) too many floods, too many blackouts, brownouts, untold hot Summers and one awful Valentine's weekend storm named 'Uri.'
Despite the weather, Texas has some of the best electricity rates in the country; generally about 15-20% less than the rest of the US (according to EIA data) Texas's abundant solar, wind and natural gas generation all help to keep prices down.
Here's the Thing
Just like your cable bill, cell phones and insurance. If you shop you can get an even better rate.
And just like those other industries - providers have figured out ways to game the system. They use Introductory Rates, Bill credits, Tiered Rates, and “Free” Nights.
You will not be shocked to learn they are not “Free.” You can learn a lot by reading an EFL (Energy Facts Label)
Why Are Y'all Doing This?
We've been in the Texas Electricity Business since it started. We've founded, operated, or built a couple electricity companies and understand them really well. We also know all the ways that providers manipulate rates and we know how to avoid them. And it's really great to help people save money and solve problems.
