Ok making the final arrangements to get all of my services turned on for the big move............
My question is this: After going to the web site Power to Choose, typing in the zip code of my home I get about 23 different providers. Do I just choose the one with the lowest cost per KwH? Seriously is this a no brainer or am I over thinking this part? I have NEVER had 23 different companies to choose from. Seems odd-no?

Depending on where you're moving I'd also check to see if there are any municipal options (like in Garland) or a co-op like in Denton and parts of Collin county. Either tends to be cheaper and neither will show up on the power to choose website. (It's for retail distributors only.)

Yes, if you cannot get a municipal or co-op electricity distributor you are stuck with one of the retailers on the list. There will be different rates and terms but be sure to read the fine print as some can surprise you with a charge you were not expecting.

IMO there is no real competition as the power primarily comes from two major providers and is delivered by the same infrastructure. Texas has relatively high rates and all the surrounding states have lower rates.
