A guide to switching your electricity provider
The power to choose your power supply is all about knowing your rights as an electric customer. Texas’ deregulated energy market means consumers have a lot more options when it comes to their electricity provider than just the area utility company. It also means consumers have the power to switch energy companies if they are not happy with their service.
At Choose Texas Power, we know that while deregulated energy has its benefits, it can also feel confusing. We’re here to fix that, with a few simple steps so you can switch providers and get better service in just a few minutes. It’s time to take control of your power supply and find an electricity plan you’re happy with. Let’s get started.
Consider switching providers if…
Some consumers find themselves switching providers because they moved to a new utility area that their current REP doesn’t service. But there are many reasons why you may want to consider switching electricity providers even if you aren’t moving.
You want a lower rate or different options. Electricity prices change constantly. Depending on when you last bought a plan, you may be paying more than you need to. Or maybe you have a variable rate that fluctuates frequently, and you want something more stable.
Your current plan no longer fits your needs. Sometimes things change, and your plan should account for that! Whether you’ve decided to go green or your average usage has changed, it’s okay to outgrow your plan – and shop for a new one.
You are unhappy with your current provider’s level of service. A huge benefit of deregulation is the number of providers available. There is no reason to stay with a supplier who doesn’t live up to your standards. Click here to learn more about the REPs available to you.
