As many of you know, in Texas electricity is deregulated allowing the customer to choose their retail energy provider. I haven't had to deal with a REP in a few years as I've been renting and electricity was covered in rent. I am now buying a home and choosing my provider. So I head over to Power To Choose
and compare rates. I have no problem getting into a 12mo contract to secure a rate. But my question is other than rate, why should I go with Reach Energy vs Reliant or Centerpoint? I can get 8.5 cents per 1000kw/h for 12 months. Any reason I should be wary of the companies offering the much cheaper rates?
