Hi

I need to find an electricity provider for our house. I would like to know if they are all the same (except for the minor price differences). Is one more reliable than the others? For example, which is better, Green Mountain Energy, TXU etc? What should I look out for when making up my mind?

Thanks

I have Amigo Energy, I know the name sounds "cheap". But they are inexpensive, and I have not had any problems. Nice customer service...least expensive provider per kw at the moment in Houston. NO contracts!!!

there is a website that shows the current rates. I don't know it, I am not in a deregulated area (thank god).

I've always had the lowest rates with TXU. Reliant is a HUGE ripoff.

I am trying Amigo and will see how I go. Not having much of a credit rating because I am from overseas, I have to give a $600 deposit!

We switched to Commerce and pay a lot less. On the other hand, though, their customer service isn't so great. They can't arrange a balanced billing plan at this time, but then you do end up saving a lot month to month compared to Reliant.
