A good deal for the careful consumer
I love Griddy because I know they are NOT scamming their customers. The rate is the wholesale power price plus the delivery charge plus $10/month. While it is possible to see a huge bill when the wholesale power price spikes, that's the tradeoff for getting lower prices the rest of the year. To save money consistently, you will want to use their app and/or some other realtime wholesale price monitor, and you will have to adjust your consumption when the price spikes. You can also run the ERCOT app and get forecast prices for each day; while that's only a rough guide, it can put you on notice that you'll need to keep a closer eye on prices that day. Another good tool is IFTTT (If This Then That) when tied to your smart thermostat. Griddy is not a set-it-and-forget-it service. I'm looking into getting some solar panels with one of their solar energy partners so that I can sell power back to the grid for up to $9/kWH when the price spikes. Mr Bill from Houston TX

July "All-In" rate (INCL TDU, & Taxes) was 7.8˘, Avg Price (Not INCL TDU) was 3.4˘
I have saved almost $500 so far in the 3 months I've been with Griddy. They charge a $10 monthly membership fee + the Wholesale price for power (which varies according to supply & demand) + the TDU charge that everybody pays.

There ARE price spikes, but Griddy does a Great job anticipating them & keeping you completely up2date when they happen - their App & web site shows the current and projected wholesale price, which varies from (literally) Zero (oversupply) to 3.5˘ (average) to brief spikes as high as $9.00 (at which point Griddy is ringing All of their alarm bells), which are typically very short lived. August has been a tough month & my average Energy Price is still 5.3˘ (Not INCL TDU), or 11.0˘ including TDU, ALL state & local taxes & fees.

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?

Their customer service is atrocious.

Their customer service is atrocious. Seems to be just one guy--Demetrius--who picks from a set of canned answers just to end the call and move on to the next inquiry. Like talking to a politician who aims to provide nothing but vacuous answers. Absolutely not helpful.

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 1.9 / 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!
