Texas-based Cirro Energy has been providing retall electricity across Texas since its founding in 2001. By 2008, the company was acquired Dominion Retail (then Dominion Energy Solutions ) and soon expanded its retail business into Illinois, Pennsylvania, and New York.

In March, 2014, NRG acquired the retail power business of Dominion Resources Inc. which included Cirro Energy. Starting about 2015, NRG's Independence Energy Group subsidiary then took over the brand in CT, IL, NJ, NY, OH, and PA as Independence Energy Group LLC d/b/a Cirro Energy.

In Texas, however, NRG continues running Cirro Energy under its own name. Now headquartered in Plano, Texas, Cirro Energy serves an estimated 150,000 households throughout the Lone Star State.

Cirro is also active in the greater Dallas Fort Worth community and supported countless volunteer hours to charities over the years, including the Fort Worth Zoo, Public Media for North Texas, and the Trains at NorthPark that raises money for the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas.

Cirro and Variable Rates

As required by law, Cirro Energy send notices out at least 30 days prior to the end of every electricity contract in Texas. These mailed notices inform customers that their contract is ending and that their rate will move to a month-to-month or variable rate. If the customer does nothing to renew the contract, cancel it, or does not selecta new plan then Cirro Energy will flip the customer to its variable rate which may be 2 to 3x higher than the original contract rate. And since it's a variable rate it may move up or down every month until you lock in a new fixed rate plan with Cirro or you switch to another provider. In other words you can go from paying 9¢ per kWH to 20¢ per kWh in one month.
