Too bad they're gone

I signed up with Kinetic on line two years an
never had to call. My rates were good and the
billing was correct. I'm considering switching
only because they were taken over by Cirro and the
rates appear to be higher.

They trick you.

We picked this company because of their low rates "average billing plan"
(they call it levelized billing). This is the plan that is supposed to help you
budget by averaging your month's usages together. We were very
pleased the entire year until it came to the end of our year contract. We
just received an e-mail from them saying that we owe $450 because our
"levelized" bill was underpaid!!! We paid our bill every month and were
NEVER notified that it was being underpaid!

Texas Electricity Provider Map
Last week's purchase of First Choice Power by Direct Energy was yet another major acquisition of a Retail Electricity Provider by a major energy conglomerate. There's been around half a dozen of these deals in the past year, and in my opinion, things have gotten a bit muddled and confusing. So I wan...

Texas Electricity: Minimum Usage Charges
Earlier this week, I got an email from a Texas Electricity Ratings reader, suggesting I write an article about Minimum Usage charges. We've discussed Minimum Usage charges in the past here, but to clear things up, in short, they're additional charges that are tacked onto a person's bill if they use...

What do customers think about Kinetic Energy?


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 Kinetic Energy customer review is 0 / 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!
