Great prices if you are careful
I really like the cost savings and simple ability to monitor prices and have the related management options of my electricity usage. I will say that it becomes tedious to deal with it during the problematic months of Jul, Aug and Sep when prices can spike crazily. I will consider what I will do during those months in futgure years but also will look for leadership from Griddy to bring solutions to bad wholesale prices at that time of year. charlesb from Sugar Land TX

Good Decision
Great decision. I've had Griddy for about 3 years now and I will have to say that it's the best decision that I've made. I was skeptical about switching over to a "pay as you go" service. But 3 years later and I'm still with them. I love having access to see the rates, what peak times are and etc. I feel like I actually have more control over my electric service. Auna from Houston TX

Go Griddy

I never know that spot prices could go over $8/kWh

It is a day before big freeze today. Currently the price is $8.08per hour and seems to be going up. Yesterday my estimated cast was $43. Today it will be $200 or maybe way more. I have been customer for 1 1/2 year. Griddy says I saved $2500 so far. I guess this month I may lose all these savings. Griddy is definitely not something for people living paycheck to paycheck. Seemed like a good idea to go with griddy, but next week I will evaluate if it is worth staying with them.
I am so glad I did not recommend it to any of my friends.

The risk is all yours

Everything I ever saved using Griddy was lost in a few hours when wholesale electricity prices spiked. Griddy didn't cause the problem or profit by it, by that gives me no solace - my August cost will be near $600 and it's that low only because I drastically cut usage after I realized the problem.

Someone is gaming the electricity market. Are you reminded of what Enron did to California?

Proceed if you want to get burnt

Please dont trust what you read abt the savings you can achieve with griddy.
In addition to thousands of customers like me who have paid more than $3000 for 2 days of usage in the winter storm, getting hold of someone to speak to from griddy has been extremely painful. me and my family have been trying this literally for 6 hours everyday for the past 1.5 weeks with umteen emails sent and no response.

Please also dont trust griddy when they say that they warned customers on time. They know abt the price surge on Thursday itself but didnt bother to inform customers to switch till end of day Saturday by when it was too late to switch as no one was accepting new customers. The no contract option is BS as you will not be able to use it when you want to as most of the time, this will not be available during emergencies.

In essence, feel free to join us who have been fooled if you wish to end up paying $9/kwh and wipe out what puny savings you may end up getting with a bill so huge that it can wipe out years, if not a lifetime of savings.
Just wish I can sue griddy for these falsified claims !!

My Experience with Griddy
As someone who works in the retail electricity industry, I definitely had my reservations about Griddy. Not the concept or the technology, but the way they’ve been marketing it. But I definitely was curious to see what all the hype was about, and more importantly, whether Griddy lived up to the hy...

What do customers think about Griddy?


That depends on who you ask. There will always be someone who feels wronged by a company, no matter how good they actually are. The average Griddy customer review is 2.6 / 5 stars. Keep in mind, consumers will go out of their way to complain far more often than they will to give praise.

Why is my electricity rate higher than when I signed up?


The rate you see when you sign up is the average rate at that exact amount of usage in one billing cycle. Some companies try to game the system by applying bill credits between certain usage thresholds. It works great if you are within the margins, but as soon as you leave that band you no longer get that bill credit and your rate per kWh can double. The PUC only requires that companies disclose their average rates at 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. Companies can get around this by giving you a $50 bill credit if you use between 1000 and 2000 kWhs per billing cycle. The only way to really know what you're getting into is to read your EFL. A 10¢ rate at all usage amounts may end up being cheaper than that 8¢ rate at 1,000 kWh!
