From what I understand, they're not all that cheap. I just got done talking with a friend of mine living in Ft Worth. He has a one bedroom apartment, nothing really big, and he's paying $180 per month.

You will have to sign a contract to get .14 - .16 per kilo watt hour. If you don't sign a contract your looking at .20

Google for electric providers--there is web site that shows what all providers are offering and the types of contracts you might need to sign...
just be aware that some areas and some apts do not have ALL the electric providers that are on the list available as a choice...

Thumbs up Check this out

Go to Power to Choose. It is a great website that helped me choose a lower rate and I also got all green renewable energy for about the same cost as regular energy from Champion.

Looks like Grainraiser is getting ripped off. Fixed rates are as low as 11.8 cents for 8-9 months. (Houston isn't any lower than 13.1.)

I used zip code 76137.

check out this opinion piece in today's FTW Star Telegram
the writer is small business owner in Arlington who says very concisely what is wrong with the "deregulation" consequences of energy/electricy in Texas today
Deregulation: No one wants to talk much about the underlying pricing issue | Opinions | Star-Telegram.com (broken link)

everyone should forward this to their local officials like the county commissioners, the state utility board, the govenor, our two US senators, our state senators--and ask for redress...
this process has given an open-pocket source of money for most electric companies in TX today and the consumer is getting the shaft...
and the newest article by the rah-rah guy Mitchell Schnurman points out exactly his weakness and lack of insight that the first article mentions...this guy is a shill for the electric providers without a clue as to why what they are doing is detrimental to the consumer...his opinion is just totally off the mark...while it might be positive that TX can adapt quicker than some other states--the reason why is part of the problem left by deregulation and gutting the state's utility oversight board...basically a rubber stamp for any energy company that wants to rape the public...
