    LOVE!

     I have been with Champion Energy now since 2015 and I can honestly say I have never been happier with an electric company. I receive weekly usage reports so I can adjust my thermostat according to what my usage is. I also like the graph they provide in the report so you can see your hourly usage and what time of the day you used the most electricity. Most importantly, they offer online payments which is very convenient.

    Easy, rate had no gimmicks

     My contract just came up for renewal from my existing energy company. I was shocked at how high the rate was, I have been with them for 6 years. I looked for an energy company that had a rate that was exactly as it seemed. I didn't want to worry about my rate changing depending on how much electricity I used.

    It was easy to sign up, and I haven't had any problems so far.

    A+ in all areas important to me!

     In an electricity provider, I look for three things:
    1. Accurate and clear bills.
    2. Personable and real customer service agents that answer questions directly.
    3. Competitive rates.
    For me, Entrust Energy consistently delivers on all three areas and scores an A+! 
    Entrust Energy responds July 19th, 2018:
    Thank you so much for the kind words. Glad that we are delivering on everything we promised! Thanks for being such a loyal customer! Best regards, Entrust

    The Best Company overall

     I signed up with Star Tex Power about 2 years ago. I tend to do 6 mo. contracts because of lower price. I appreciate their NOT adding on trivial fees, such as "talking with rep, payment by phone, or payment online." It's good business, as usual, with Star Tex. I haven't found anything that would tempt me to change.
