In Texas you have the "Power To Choose." Deciding on which company to go with is based on a personal preference, on how much electricity you use, and which company offers the best deal.
It’s important when comparing electricity plans that you also take these factors into consideration.
How Insulated Is Your Home?
Does your home offer adequate protection from the outside elements? While insulation helps keep cold out during the winter, it also helps keep cold in during the summer months, allowing you to use less electricity in both seasons.
If it’s a newer home, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about as the insulation requirements have become more strict over time. However, if you have an older home you may want to either up your insulation game or try going for a cheaper electricity plan.
Fixed or Variable?
Whether your electricity rate is fixed or variable can play a huge role in how much you pay per month. You can choose a fixed rate you know you can afford for the next 12 months or go with a cheaper variable rate that may or may not go up with time.
What Others are Saying?
Before signing up with a company you think might be a good fit, take a look at their reviews. Do you see a lot of happy customers or do their customers seem not so thrilled with their performance? This can tell you how you will be treated as a customer of this company.
