For your electric company choice, deregulation is nice sometimes but it is also 99 ways to get screwed also.

I have been with gexa for 2 years now, they offer a decent rate, and a large "billing credit" if my energy usage falls within certain ranges.

The past two years I have gotten the energy credit almost every month and have had dirt cheap electric bills.

Now, I am offered a renewal plan with them that looks similar, but the rates have gone up, but the discounts are still in place.

Doing some math, they want to tack $40 per month onto my bill.

Anyways, it seems on powertochoose, there are less providers than in years past, and reading the energy facts labels, there are some scary pitfalls.

Has anyone used energy ogre? They are a service for $10 per month will find all the promotional electric rates and put you in a plan.

There was guy who lives in town next to me (Colleyville) who worked with the Federal Mint in FTW for years--
His job was to monitor energy consumption and reduce costs
He has written software program that uses YOUR home's energy use for year--the KWH and anything else -- maybe like a timeline of useage--some people track that closely
To analyze which electric company's pricing is really best for you for a year--not just the first 3 mo of a special deal...

He was on NextDoor posting about his deal when people were asking about options for electric companies
He has started a company to do the service--
Not sure what the name is

My husband just refuses to leave our provider--even though it is expensive...
