You gained the power to choose when Texas’ Legislature deregulated electric in 1999. Along with freedom to choose came a slew of confusing electric bill options from an ever-increasing number of electric providers. Luckily, Power To Choose gives you a free and easy way to pick a plan and lower your electric bill.
Exercise your power to choose
Visit Power To Choose. Enter your zip code. Answer a few questions. See a variety of plans. Choose the one that’s right for you. The site is even set up to help you switch to your selected plan. Search. Click. Change. It can’t get any easier than that.
Know when to use your power to choose
Buy when the market is down. Lock in through the high times. That means changing electric plans during summer’s high demand months is not wise. But, changing between seasons does. March and April, September and October are typically lower demand months. Prices follow demand. Making a plan change at this time will probably get you a better deal.
But, what if you’re due for a change during a peak month? Choose a short-term plan that will get you to a lower-demand time. For instance, if you’re due to renew in August, get three-month plan that gets you to October. Then, choose a better long-term solution.
All it takes is some time and a willingness to use your power to choose.
