Please stop with the cherry picking. It's very easy to see through.

For everyone else, I simply chose 75001 as this a common ZIP code in the Dallas area, and neither poster complaining ever said exactly where they lived. In doing so, you'll find prices start at 13.2 cents and go to 24 cents. Hence, the power to choose. This really isn't rocket science.

I just ran the numbers for my area and the cheapest I see is 15 cents and that's for a 36mo contract. At this point I would hesitate to get 36mo as the rates could drop in a year. I'm currently paying around 9 cents, if I'm not mistaken.

I would still argue that living in a place with regulated power is better for the sole reason that your electricity bill won't double over the period of a year.\

EDIT: I just ran the numbers for contracts only up to 12mo and see the lowest is 18.9 cents.

Again, I didn't say it wasn't, I said you probably just cherry picked the higher prices in the range since there were 68 prices alone in the one Dallas zip code I looked up. Try sorting on the lowest to highest. On the Dallas zip code I listed, the very first one is a 24 month plan at 13.2 cents. Everyone on the first page is between 12 and 24 months. Why not try and make an honest argument instead of being disingenuous?

Really? I just ran 76102 and found that same 13.2 cents (Frontier super value plan) for 24 months. It's followed by Gexa superdeluxe at 13.4 cents also for 24 months.

https://www.choosetexaspower.org/com...pCode=76102&m=

Edit: 14.2 cents on 12 months

"disingenuous"? I listed the 12 months prices for a dallas zip code. youre insisting its cheap.... if you lock your self at historically high rates...which again, went from around 8 cents to 18 cents per kwh...

"The average going rate per kilowatt-hour in June is 18.48 cents per 1,000 kWh used, according to the state of Texas’ Power to Choose website. That is an increase of 10.5 cents when compared to June 2021, and that would amount to a nearly $80 monthly increase on an electric bill."

Zip code?

I'm guessing this is going to take a bit while your frantically go through every zip code in Dallas and try to find one to substantiate your bogus claim. Tick Tock.

LOL, crickets.

He claims to have used pricing on a Dallas zip code. How long does it take to type 5 digits? It wasn't a challenging question.
This is what happens when you get caught in a lie.
