Does anyone have any tips for good electric companies that services North Richland Hills area? We will be moving there from California, and we are overwhelmed with the number of providers available. Any help would be appreciated!

We also made the move from California and the utility-choosing process was a stressful one, no doubt about that!

We have Champion Energy for electricity and Atmos for gas. Champion has great customer service and fair rates and while Atmos' rates are pretty much the same as the other gas companies, their customer service leaves something to be desired.

You are also able to sign up with Energy Ogre, which is a company you pay a monthly fee to and they will bounce you around from electric company to electric company in order to find the cheapest rates. We wanted consistency so we opted out of that service. But, compared to SCE in CA, the rates are always cheaper out here! The lowest cents per kilowatt we paid out in CA was 19 cents and here our rate is 9.9 cents.

Oh, and you'll also deal be dealing with Oncor- they're the actual electric providers and the companies, like Champion, are the brokers who deal it out. Confusing, I know, but it seems to work for everybody out here, lol.

Welcome to Texas! If you need any more info about making the move, feel free to PM me!

I think Atmos IS the gas company in Tarrant and Dallas counties
Like Oncor runs the electrical grid and sells power to companies that basically market electricity to end users
And Oncor repaires outages due to storm/weather/transformer damage...

You can chose an electric provider that does your billing and tracks your useage and charges you a fee per KWH
Just remember that the electric company you pay is buying electricity off the grid
When there are brown outs and power is scare, rates go up and you are charged a surcharge to cover that extra cost--you can't count on always getting the advertised rate from the provider...

Someone using NextDoor who lives in Colleyville and supposedly worked for the Dept of the Tresury at the printing plant in n FTW said he worked there as an energy auditor for years
He created a program that analyzes a home's electrical use over 12 mo not just the highest month and uses billing prices from many providers to see which one gives you the best OVERALL plan
He had a name for his company
Was selling the service cheap to get lot of people to sign on initially
Then he was going to raise the one-time fee
It was less expensive than the companies that bill you monthly and maybe move you around...
