With all the talk about choosing your electricity provider, many still haven’t done it. “So,” you may be wondering, “what happens if you don’t exercise your right to choose your Texas electricity company?” Following is some insight.
When you elect not to choose your electric provider, your service will be supplied by what’s called an Affiliate Retail Electric Provider. Who/what is this?
An Affiliate Retail Electric Provider is an entity associated with the original Retail Electric Provider (REP) that services your area.
If you don’t know which company this is, you can find out by logging on to sites like ElectricityBid.com. You can speak with a representative there, or plug in some info like your zip code to find out which Texas electric companies service your area.
What You Give Up by Not Choosing Your Texas Energy Company
The most important thing you give up is energy savings. Why/how?
Conventional Texas electricity companies offer so many money-saving plans for all types of consumers. For example, if your credit has gotten a little dinged up in the last few years – and many have seen this happen with the raging foreclosure crisis and steep job losses — you may think that the only plan you can get is an expensive one like a prepaid electric service account.
This is far from the truth.
With no-deposit and low-deposit electric plans like the Texas LITE-UP Program, energy savings have never been easier to get.
FYI, the Texas LITE-UP Program gives discounts to customers from May through September on their electric bill.
So “choose to choose” your Texas electric provider. Sites like ElectricityBid.com make it so easy. Literally, with a few clicks of the mouse, you can be on your way to reducing your monthly electric bill.
