Reliant's Retail Power Savings 24 is a good plan because it has a good rate, and its bill credit is uncomplicated, just be sure to use over 1k. Cirro's Smart Value 24 is similar.

Live in a giant house on a sprawling estate? Doesn't mean you want to overspend on electricity. 4 Change's Power Maxx Saver 24 is a great plan. Constellation's 12 Month Flat Tier Product is an excellent choice. It's a flat low rate for the first 2k of usage, then a low rate for everything over 2k.
