“Cramming” Rights for Citizens of Beaumont, Texas

Beaumont Texas electric pricesResidents of Beaumont, Texas have a right to know what their electric service provider is charging them and why. Being charged without consent is known as “cramming” – your electric bill is “crammed” full of hidden charges and services that you were not aware of beforehand. The Public Utility Commission of Texas has specific regulations in place to prevent providers from charging customers for services without their consent.

Your electric service provider is required to inform you of any charges before you are charged. You have the right to know how the charges will look on your bill. Your provider is required to provide a toll-free number to you for any questions or disputes. If you end up disputing a charge, your electric service provider cannot disconnect your service for nonpayment of the disputed charges. If the results of the dispute are in your favor, your service provider must stop the charges and reimburse you any money owed.

Take a look at your current electric service bill. If you do not understand some of the charges, make the call and get the answers you deserve. If your electric rates are higher than you like, use our comparison chart to compare the rates of area electric providers. In just a few seconds, you can see what other electric providers charge for their Beaumont, Texas service.

Compare Amigo With The Others

Amigo Energy has an updated electricity facts label on the www.powertochoose.org website. Their electric rate continues to be one of the lowest electric rates with pretty fare terms and agreements when comparing with some of the other discount electric providers in Texas. For instance, as of 9-12-2007 they have a 12 month rate at 10.7 cents kWh but if you add the $6.95 monthly customer charge you will be paying a rate of about 11.4 cents kWh cents. Because there is a $6.95 cent monthly base charge this would actually make the rate a little higher then Spark as they do not charge a monthly customer charge. Spark Energy which is offering a 10.3 cents kWh rate for 6 months and a 11 cents\kWh rate at 12 months has no monthly customer service charge.
