New Electric Company
I need to find a new electric company. I live in the Ft. Worth area and had switched from TXU to Gexa some time ago. At the time, Gexa had the cheapest rates. Now I am paying 13.61 kWh. Yesterday I recieved a 500.00 + bill and we cannot afford it. Has anyone found anything better? I have gone to the Power To Choose website. I thought maybe some of you had already discovered something good...I do know there are some listed around 10 kWh which is a bit of a difference than the 13.61 I am being charged.
I would appreciate all the input I can get. Thanks.

So What Happened?™
Thank you for all the input. My husband and I are still researching. We printed out the power-to-choose chart but the rates have risen since the chart was made out. Most seem to be 11.0 and up...or a month to month rate cheaper but I bet once you switch, they raise the rates. If anyone has just recently changed as of a week ago, I would like to know what you were told. Thanks again, L.

Wow,13.61 is as close as any other company out there. There is a web site that compares these rates, but the only thing that saves us is averaging. I think it's time we all started thinking alternative energy.

I live in Arlington and have Reliant and pay 12.4 but my comtract just ended and recvd a mailing from Direct Energy for 11.4 so I am moving to them because Reliant only has a flex plan right now so call Direct or look online at power to choose.com or .org you can view all the prices in our area I feel you on the price my electric bill this month is 495.00. Good Luck

You can go to www.powertochoose.org and compare the rates for the companies available in your area. You just put in your zip code and it should give you a list and all of their rates. Be very careful to read all the terms of service and fee schedules as some of them are fixed, some are variable and some have contract lengths with pricey cancellation fees. It's great that you're shopping around. If we all did that, the companies' rates would be more competitive.

My friend recently got me to change to Ambit Energy. So far the bill has been less. If you would like the contact info for my consultant, I would be glad to share that with you. Her name is L. as well and she will give you a complete rundown of the service. I have been pleased so far and my best friend also switched and said her bill was lower as well. You also earn points that give your rewards.
If you go online, L. consult number is C###-###-####. She and her husband, Marc have done it together. Please contact me if you would like her number.

We use Stream Electricity and have found them to be one of the most best priced ones in the area. There are choices of locking in at a rate and going month to month. Either way the rates are good as I am sure you saw on the powertochose.com website. We liked our rates so much we ended up signing up as distributor with Ignite. Please take a moment to check out website at www.less4energy.com I think you will be pleased with the service.

We have a plan called the "Dream Deal Plan". You are locked in for only 6 months and it is 10.7c.
I would LOVE to have you as a customer and you would be supporting a mom, as oppose to a big electric company CEOs :)
Feel free to check my website out. You can go to energy and click on energy comparison rate.
HTH and GL!

Yes, give me your phone number and I can have someone contact you. It is only 10.9 I believe. I got out of TXU a long time ago. But went to Shine On or Texas Power which is still cheaper but Ambit is even cheaper. I can have Angela call you if you give me her number. She is in a MLM with it and will get some cut when you sign up under her. Thanks, evenually I want to do it too. G. W
