Does anyone have any personal experience with any of the above power companies? We are moving into our apartment in Richmond in two weeks and I'll like some personal feedback on the above companies... thanks in advance.

I have Champion. I pay the bill online, did not have to sign up for automatic draft, power stays on - so far so good. I got just under $.10 per KWH on a 12 m plan. Shop around for best deal. Look for monthly fees, different charges depending on usage.

I've been bouncing back and forth between Reliant and Champion every 6 months. Haven't had any problems with either of them. This last time I got 7.1 cents (fixed) with Reliant, which seems pretty decent. Use the Power to Choose web site and find the best deal.

Just pick the cheapest with the longest term. Honestly, how often do you need to talk to your electric company? In the 10yrs I've been paying for it I only called them twice and that was during Allison and Ike. Unless you live in an area that has electrical problems like black outs. Then I would just move elsewhere.

Do not go strictly based on Power to Choose though. If you find one you like go to their site and check the rates and terms. Sometime the info on PTC is old and not updated.

Electrical companies are essentially billing companies and do not provide power. that would be ie. center point.

As top poster said find cheapest price for longest term and you are good. If their prices are no longer the lowest change.
