We finally after a year of wanting to move bought a house. We hope it is the best decision for our family. It is in Trace Ridge. We are trying to figure out the electric company and from what the seller said our choices are Star Tex or TXU Energy. What is the difference and which is better? Where we are moving from there is one company no decision. Is the gas company the same way, I believe they used Atmos. Is there another to choose from and if so same question as the electric. We visited the Children's Lighthouse outside the subdivision and loved it, any good or bads on it. Our realtor is the absolute BEST so if you need any help in that area pm me and I will give you her name. We stayed in constant contact with her the entire time we was there if we wasn't with her. She drove us around all the areas we thought we liked, showed us every house we wanted. I could go on and on about her so if you need a great one let me know.

there is usually only one choice for gas and that is Atmos if you are in Tarrant co or those adjacent I think
but for electricity itself it is more confusing...
there is sometimes a difference in the company who is providing/monitoring the physical electric lines that bring power to a neighborhood/city...in some part of Keller there are two different service companies == you can't choose between them--one or the other is the one who installed the power lines but you can have your choice of the company you buy the electricity itself from...

I was just about to suggest that!
Aboslutly check it out. That's how I got mine. Otherwise you could end up paying up to 20 cents/kWh

Victor--how long is your contract? can it be cancelled if prices spike again?
do you think company is big enough not to be caught in credit crunch?

^ l2r, I know you weren't asking me, but I'm on a M2M right now paying a relatively high price. I think I should just lock in a 6- or 12-mo. rate and be done with it. I should've done this earlier in the summer before peaking power season was coming. In the winter, I'll barely be using power. My peak summer month bill can sometimes be 6-7 times higher than a winter month!
