Hi! We are finally closing on a home in Taylor next week. I am attempting to arrange utilities and am getting stuck at the electric provider choice. I know I should pick the provider with the best rate. I just don't know if any providers have better reputations or if it doesn't matter. Also, do you think I should lock into a 6 month fixed rate or go ahead with a longer lock in period assuming rates will only go higher.

From what I have read about the prices in Austin and Cedar Park on the forums it looks like we will be paying a lot more. The rates over here start at 12.6/kWh. Thats for a 6 month lock in, but then it would change to variable, which makes me nervous with the current economy.

Any advice would be appreciated. In PA we didn't have a choice so this is strange to me.
