You depend on your electricity to survive. As long as you pay your bill on time, you should never have to worry about service interruption, right? Wrong.

  • Emergencies – Your Dallas, Texas electric provider has the right to disconnect your service in the event of an emergency, such as a damaged power line.
  • Misuse of the service – If you are using your electric in a way that interferes with other resident’s service, your service can be disconnected.

During these situations, you will not receive notice that your power is going to be shut off. In situations where you are merely late with your bill, your provider is obligated to provide you with ten-day notice before disconnection. If you think your Dallas, Texas electric has been disconnected without cause, immediately contact your service provider.

Champion Energy offers a low cost residential electric rate in Houston Texas that is quite a bit lower then most of the other Retail Energy Providers out there. They have only one term to choose from at 12 months but for those wondering about signing up for a longer term it is like buying insurance in case energy rates were to go up. Rates are fairly low right now (As of the posting of this article on January 2007) so you can lock in for 12 months and forget about what rates will do until next year. The rate Champion is offering (as of Jan 2007, when this article was written) is at 11.1 cents a kWh with a $4.95 monthly service fee (champion electric rates may be higher or lower then this now depending on what the market has done since the posting of this). If you are like most households you can add in the $4.95 monthly fee and the rate is still at about 11.3 cents a kWh (as of Jan 2007) total which if you were to look around is one of the lowest 12 month terms I have been able to find out there. We have the current Champion Energy electric rate listed in the blue box above. Click on the box above to sign up with Champion.
