Reviews from Early:

Very Happy with Service

(5 / 5)

  We decided to switch to Titan Gas And Power when we moved in May of 2017 and we are extremely pleased with our choice. Their online customer service is excellent. Their rates are awesome compared to our previous supplier. Now our bill is $125 in the summer as opposed to nearly $300!!! Customer service has been easy to work with as well you can call or email. We have called 3 times. First to set up the account, Second to add a location and Third for a quick billing question, and they are always polite. So far, we are very happy with Titan Gas And Power and how easy it is to work with him. I recommend them.

A Breeze

(5 / 5)

  This is Awesome. I was very disappointed with my previous service provided and unfortunately the relationship of more than 4 years had to end. I reviewed several other companies before arriving here and was displeased at their demands for a huge activation deposit. None of them could clearly explain why those startup monies were necessary or could confirm if they were refundable minus all the fees if the relationship had to end. I would have been okay to pay it out installments but no one was hearing that. Just hand us 220.00 and well turn it on. Im glad i found you guys and very pleased there's no deposit. This is how you become and remain #1. Im telling everyone I know at the old company to follow me. (#high5) Thank you ..Now lets do business one kilo watt at a time. Praise God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  I went with Star Tex last year in November 2009 when I moved and my electric bill went way down. I've never had any problems with my bills being correct or have had no problems with their service. My plan ends in November and I plan on renewing for another year. When I checked on new rates, it was actually down from my previous rate by nearly 1 cent per kWh. It all adds up!

Extremely satisfied

(5 / 5)

  I have been a StarTex customer for nearly 4 years, first at my apartment and
now my home. Their rates have always been some of the lowest on the market
with no hidden fees for credit card payments, auto debit, telephone payments,
etc. I have had several businesses I know and friends switch at my urging and
they have all been equally satisfied. My contract is up for renewal in June and I
fully expect to be renewing my contract for another 2 year term!

  I just switched from Green Mountain Energy to StarTex. Their rates are MUCH better for green energy. The customer service was AWESOME, she was very helpful, spoke very clearly, and was articulate. She knew what she was talking about and to make it even better she was an AMERICAN! I didn't have to press one for English! They also have a referral program for referring friends where they give you AND your friend both $25 credit to your accounts. I am very satisfied.

Superior customer service

(5 / 5)

  StarTex's customer service rep was excellent. She was knowledgeable and patient when I asked all of the questions that I needed to have answered in order to make the decision to switch electric providers. I had had the same provider for nine years and wanted to make sure that I was making the right decision. Everything was explained very clearly. So far a great experience!

Great Company

(5 / 5)

  I purchased my first home last year and I was very worried about what my electric bills would be in a much more spacious living area. So I compared numerous electric companies against each other. I was very sceptical at the very competetive energy price this company was offering so I signed a 1 year contract. Well I'm very happy to say this company is legit and beats all the major electric companies in the state of Texas hands down. I paid a lot more in electricity when i was living in my 700 sq ft apt. I now live in a 1500 sq ft home and I am paying less yearly than I did when I lived in my apt. I have referred 6 of my friends and all 6 of my friends have told me their electric bills have been cut in half. I wish the company offered a referral bonus because the 6 people I have referred have all referred others. Stop wasting your money. Sign up now and see the difference.

NGE will save you a lot of money if youre a smart consumer.

(5 / 5)

  A lot of these negative reviews are from people who dont know how to shop. If you sign up on a 3 cent rate of course your rate is going to skyrocket in month 4. Its like they are offering you a nearly-free trial and you want them to do it forever?! Sign up for a 12 or 24 month plan, shop around when your contract expires and enjoy the savings. Just dont get greedy and expect the low 3 month prices to be the rates you pay all the time.

The Best Energy Provider Here

(5 / 5)

  I had renewed with Direct some months before but I guess it was too early for a renewal but one phone call and it was done immediately by a very knowledgeable Customer Service Rep. Direct has been my choice for some time now and I don't plan to change any time soon.

Never had a problem with them

(5 / 5)

  Well, I had to look at my monthly bill to see what gas company I had. In having to do so, clearly I haven't had any issues to where I needed to contact them. In summary, nothing to complain about with Georgia Natural Gas.

My First Monthly Bill from Veteran Energy

(5 / 5)

I was anxious to get my first bill from Veteran Energy because it seems that every electricity provider is somewhat different in how the monthly billing statement is presented. I've found most utility bills to be pretty confusing. It seems there are always at least some surprises in the beginning until you figure out all the line items which comprise your total charges.

In other words, it's often hard to fully understand what you signed up for until you've already signed up.

Not so with Veteran Energy.

I happened to use about 1,100 kilowatt hours during my first month's billing cycle which made me automatically entitled to a generous credit under the plan I had signed up for. There were absolutely NO CATCHES WHATSOEVER. The bill was simple, concise, and honest with no "hidden charges" that I wasn't already expecting.

I've already received top-notch customer support from team leader Roberto (ext. 13272) and Lynn (ext. 3276). Roberto originally signed me up after thoughtfully explaining how everything works and Lynn later went over my first bill with me and explained all the different payment options available and helped me set up automatic monthly drafts from my checking account.

She even congratulated me on receiving my credit!

Lynn and Roberto definitely went over and beyond and I'm already spoiled. I wish more companies had such high-caliber professionals providing customer support.

I deeply respect that Veteran Energy makes generous contributions from their own profits to such a large number of wonderful organizations whose sole mission is to help America's veterans.

Because my cousin - Kenneth - was killed in Vietnam in the early 1970's, I chose the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) as my charity of choice.

I believe one would be hard-pressed to find a better electricity provider than Veteran Energy. **==

Favorite company yet

(5 / 5)

  I switched electric providers nearly every six months since moving to Texas 4 years ago always looking for a better rate. I switched to Bounce about 7 months ago and plan to stay with them I like them so much! Their rates are competitive & I love their rewards program... which I didn't have with any of the other companies I used. Switching to them was easy, their bills are straightforward, their customer service has been great. I highly recommend them. If this review was helpful, please use my reward code if you switch to them and we will both be rewarded! How many other companies have you reviewed that give you bonuses??? Good luck... I think you'll be happy if you make this switch.

  I just wanted to check in again. I wrote a review way back in August 2014 when I first switched and received my first bill. It is now April 2015, I am nearing the end of my 12 month contract with Infinite Energy. I received an email today (3 months prior to my expiration) offering to renew. I also just received the LOWEST electric bill I have ever had, $99 for this month. Actually, I had a lower bill once, in 1999 when I lived in a 1 bedroom apartment. The difference is now I live in a 4/3 house. My electric bill was actually lower than my water bill (first time that has ever happened).

As for the rates, there are truly no hidden costs. My bill is exactly what my rate is supposed to be. Plus Infinite emails a weekly electricity report. So each week I open my email, it tells me (for example, "you used 450 kwh this week". I simply plug in that number, times my rate and have a very good idea what my electricity cost for the prior week, and of course have a good idea what it will be for the month.

The android app is very simple to use. I pay all of my bills using it and so far (now 9 months in) have never had a single problem.

Their customer service is pretty good, especially if you go to their facebook page. (At least that was my preferred medium). After a few months of being a customer, they even sent me a thank you card and a t-shirt.

I have literally nearly cut my electricity bills in half switching from TXU to Infinite. Actually the true percentage is about 44%, but it makes a huge difference, as an electric bill is one of the most fluid monthly bills for any household. I estimate that I have saved about $1300 in the 9 months that I switched from TXU to Infinite Energy.

The Texas heat is coming, if you have TXU or Reliant, or are paying more than the Infinite Energy prices on powertochoose.com, you need to switch.

And one more thing, beware of some of those companies on powertochoose.com that just popup. Infinite Energy has an excellent rating (5 smiling outlets) and very few complaints (you can check rating and complaint history on power to choose).

In the context of utilities and household bills, cell phones, auto insurance, etc--switching to Infinite Energy was the best decision I've ever made. It pays off every time I get another dirt cheap bill. $99 for electric this month. Unbelievable. :)

  I switched to Champion 10 months ago for a great introductory rate. No problems, no hidden fees and the best part is my renewal is lower. Yes this time of year the rates are still pretty low, but I found a company with a lower rate and they met it and then some. My past experience has been that only new customers get the lowest advertised rates, and the don't care if you transfer service.
But Champion does want to keep your business. Their customer service even sent me spreadsheets comparing yearly cost of different plans based on my prior usage. This company has the right attitude and I think the fact that they have way more positive reviews proves it.

Use this referral number SScarboro86062 for $25 off your first bill. Or you might get a better deal without it? Check it both ways.

Free nights are NOT for everyone, UNLESS you make changes to your lifestyle.

(5 / 5)

  People let's be honest and out our feet back on the ground, If you have a busy household with kids and all kinds of activities during the day, than probably TXU free nights it's NOT for you... BUT if you're someone who's not at home during the majority of the day and can make "adjustments" to your lifestyle (do laundry during the night, pump up the AC in the early hours of the mornig to cool down the house for the majority of the day during the summer, than this plan is IDEAL for you...
I signed up for this plan in June 2014 and during the entire summer not a single bill went over $96 per MONTH and now that's fall season my average bill has been $69 a month... Of course you want to make sure your house is well insulated and have the best "enery savings" appliances, bulbs, etc...

THANK YOU TXU, I'l looking fowrard on staying your customer for years to come.

Excellent rates!

(5 / 5)

  We've been extremely pleased with Champion energy. We renewed early this summer on a 6 month contract so we can sign a 3 year contract in January when electricity rates are historically lower. The weekly power tracker emails are a great way to stay on top of energy consumption and the few times I've called in to customer service they have been excellent

Love Cirro

(5 / 5)

  I have used Cirro Energy for nearly seven years. I've never had a problem and have always found their rates, even their renewal plans, to be some of the most reasonable and fair around.

True to Their Word

(5 / 5)

  I switched to Champion because they had a better rate. However after switching, my former provider talked me into coming back which turned out to be a huge mistake as they lied (see review of TXU titled Liars). When I contacted Champion to try and come back they were extremely helpful and true to their word. They conducted a "market track" which I found out from Public Utility Commission cost them money to do but was necessary in order for me to return. Also they credited the early termination fee back to my account which they did not have to do. Each customer rep I spoke with was helpful and pleasant. It is refreshing to find a company that follows through with what they say they will do. If this proves to be how Champion conducts business I will be a loyal customer for a very long time.

Good Experience so far

(5 / 5)

  I had ENCOA for the past 5 months. Everything has been great so far. I received my contract expiration letter with everything explained. I have spoken to their customer service representative and it was very easy to get a hold of a live person. I gotta give them props for resolving a an error with the power to choose website and making my account without early termination fee or base usage charge. I was impressed by that.
