I have been with TXU electric provider for over 14 years. This month I was sent a letter to sign up for my new rate package before the rates went up and lock in the current rates. Holey Moley, my plan does not exist in today's world. The new rates were 34.27% higher than I was paying. I talked to them on the phone and they had several other plans to choose from. I did all the math on my spreadsheet and the best one was 27.2% higher. I went on the web to see what else I could find ( Texas is a state that has many companies to choose from ). I used texaselectricrates.com. Very nice site. The rates per kwh reflect the delivery charges also which a lot of places do not. Here for me it is $8.95 plus $0.0328 per kwh. I did the math on several companies and plans they had and chose one called Pennywise. It is a 14 month plan that is only 7% higher than I paid last year.
