In Texas, most consumers have the power to choose their electricity provider. But that doesn’t mean you have to use the state’s PowertoChoose.org web site.
After all, for years, retail energy companies have used the Power to Choose site to trick consumers like you with confusing fine print.
The best way to use your power to choose is to choose an alternative, better shopping experience than the state-sponsored site.
Just enter your zip code and you can start shopping for the best electricity plans near you. BONUS! Enter your average monthly electricity usage and we will automatically show the average price for your usage level!

The Power to Choose = Fine Print, Gimmicks and Gotchas
The intentions of Power to Choose were good — help Texans shop for electricity. Unfortunately, the Power to Choose has become the Power to Confuse, with a mish-mash of gimmicks and gotchas, all hiding behind an average price per kWh that “looks” fair.
And Retail Energy Providers have gamed the Power to Choose site, tricking consumers with fine print, tiered rates, and confusing rate structures.
On the Power to Choose, all the plans look like a great deal at 1000 kWh per month. Then you read the details. Or you get your first bill and realize it’s not what you expected.
Who likes to be tricked? No one. Who likes to pay more than they expected? No one. That’s why the best way to shop for an electricity plan is to use a Power to Choose alternative shopping site, like ElectricityPlans.com.
Just enter your actual monthly usage and we will automatically use our Electricity Bill Calculator to show your average price per kWh. And, we’ll calculate your estimated electricity bill. That way you can quickly and easily find the cheapest electricity plan for your usage.
