Florida Power and Light | Gexa Energy

Florida Power and Light bought Gexa Energy making Gexa Energy a much larger company then they started out as. Gexa began as a small Texas electric company which bought an already publicly traded company to get them into investor arena. It obviously worked as they grew by leaps and bounds and were bought by a very large electric company that not only sells retail electricity but has several natural gas power generation facilities. There were some serious billing issues during this transition merging with Florida Power and Light and they are just now getting things together. Gexa Energy offers competitive electric rates to small and medium sized commercial businesses while they have remained uncompetitive as of late for larger commercial and industrial companies. Gexa has moderately priced electric rates for residential homes in Texas but not the best. As an example, an electric company to compare with Gexa Energy would be to compare Startex Power with them in regards to Texas residential electricity. Champion Energy and Startex Electric have a lower month to month electric rate as well as lower 6 month and 12 month electric rate as of March 2008 but depending on when you read this the electric rates would have changed and things could be different. You can compare Startex Power’s rates with Gexa Energy’s at this promotional rate page: Startex Promo Rate


In the past, Gexa Energy would charge 2 average electric bills as an early termination penalty to its residential and commercial customers which was a bit of a price gouging tactic as this was more then the market make up in the profit lost in a canceled contract. Since then they have changed this policy and are a much better company to deal with. Accurate billing, low rates, and good customer service. Gexa is all right in our book.

Champion Energy Retail Electric Provider

Saving Money On Electricity In Houston

Champion Energy has a very low cost electric rate in the Houston area but current rates now available may be even better so be sure to compare their prices with the many providers and rates listed in our chart. You can find our compare tool at the top right of this page. Back in Jan 8 of 2008 Champion’s price was lower than any of the other electric companies I had seen so far except for Startex Power. Currently there are new providers out there that may beat them both.

As of Jan 8 2008 they only offer one term at 12 months but this is the most popular term for most people so it usually works for most peoples needs. The rate for January is at 11.1 cents a kWh with a $4.95 monthly service fee but Champion’s electric rate has gone up since then. If you add in the service fee into the rate goes up about .004 cents kWh which is still a lower rate then the most competitive providers offering residential electric service in Houston. For a more competitive electric rate then Champion Energy with no monthly service fee we recommend Startex Power. Depending on your area in Texas their rate will be higher or lower.
