I dislike The Texas electric rate process

Finding a renewal rate in Texas is pure nonsense filled with gimmicks and deceptions. Only thing that matters is the cost of power all of the $$s off between this usage and that is just awful to have to go thru , so many do not and ultimately overpay. First choice was the best rate i could find at that moment without the noise. But cant say it was the lowest because you just run out of time and patience. Good Luck.

$939 Rug Pull

This company convinced me to try out their average billing plan. 7 months in they decide to sell my account to Reliant and then charged me the entire balance of $939 all at once. They said they sent letters but could not call or email anyone to notify them of this change.
