Weird Electric Rate Comparison Sites To Stay Away From

As most of us, when we go into business we do it to make money. This site makes money by offering a great tool for verifying and comparing electric rates from multiple providers.

We always try and put companies to compare on our chart that are strong viable companies for the long term. We have likely met their CEO and have researched their history.

Our chart is made so that you can quickly compare no-nonsense rate plans like most all “fixed rate” plans.

What I have seen lately are some comparison sites that are owned by one electric supplier with ownership in multiple brand names.

These comparison sites are tricky because it looks like you are comparing prices from multiple providers but in reality the ownership is all by one company.

I am not saying that it is evil to make money in business by selling an online electric rate but it is important to be transparent to your customers and not present yourself as an unbiased comparison site when in reality all the providers on the comparison are actually one company.

I am shocked that there are sites out there like this as it seems like an extreme form of deceptive trade practices for an electric company to be involved in but I can only assume they know the risk and are willing to do it anyway.

Here at Electricitybid.com we are here to make money but we do business with the ultimate goal of living a life of integrity, treating our customers like we want to be treated, and simply doing a great job at what we know how to do.

We want to thank our customers for coming back and using us again and again, and please let us know if you have anything you would like to see on the comparison chart that is not there already or other suggestions.

Clute TX Electricity Rates and Plans

In Clute Texas there are several electricity companies competing to win the business of both commercial and residential electric service customers. Not all companies will be cheaper than Reliant Energy but many are. Before just going with the cheapest Clute electric provider it is important to understand the plans available.

Our electricity rate comparison chart categorizes the electricity rate plans based on term. There are variable electricity rates and fixed rates. Don’t just sign up with a variable price because it is the cheapest. Variable prices change each month and the positive aspect to a rate like this is that you will not be locked into the Clute electric rate for any specific term.

This means with a variable rate you will find it to be worthwhile if you will only be at a location for a short time. A variable electricity price follows the energy commodities market up and down. If you are risk averse it is best to get on a fixed electricity rate instead.

A fixed electric rate can be anywhere from 3 months to 36 months out. A fixed Clute TX electricity price simply means that the rate will not change on you for the entire term of the contract. For most people a 6 month – 1 year fixed electricity rate is the best choice. You will not have to worry about the electric rate fluctuating in price every month.

We recommend comparing Reliant Energy’s prices with the electricity rates in this chart. We think you will find substantial savings. All fees and charges are included in the prices in our comparison chart. The only think not in the rate are taxes and this is industry standard.

When looking at too good to be true offers elsewhere on the internet you may see some energy suppliers leaving off TDSP charges or line loss and ancillary charges. This means that although their fixed electric rate appears the cheapest in their advertisement you will see a completely different rate when you get your first months electric bill.

Our company does not have a business model based on tricking customers. Our comparison chart averages in all fees in the rate so you know what you will be paying. Since everything but taxes is in the electric rate you will be able to compare apples to apples with Reliant Energy and other reputable electricity providers in Clute TX.
