    Old review
    Its very good electric company and I have been using since 2 years without any problem. After switching to this provider my bill almost reduced to half. Also they have very good reward program and gives you cash back of $75 , $25 etc on time to time like for 3 or 6 months or if autopay chosen. Their rates are decent and didn't get any problems so far and it is very easy to switch to Bounce Energy. Be sure to use this code to receive $75 bill credit on first bill: 1395335(It never expires). It worked for me and my many friends.

     My electric bill has been either $71 or $73 per month, for the entire year I have had 4Change Energy. From Houstons balmy summers to one of the coldest winters, I never worried about the cost skyrocketing. My friend, with a larger apartment, told me his electric bill for January was $350 because of the unusually cold month, and he thought he had been conservative with his thermostat. I realized then that I had been taking my consistently low, consistently reliable and no hassle service for granted. He had to tighten up other areas of his budget for the unanticipated extra cost of electricity. I was grateful that had not been my experience, thanks to 4Change.
