Links

To shed further light on the many options — both good and bad — in Texas’s deregulated market, we list our shopping site competitors here for reference. By providing links to other sites, TexasPowerGuide.com does not guarantee, approve, or endorse the information or products available on these sites. Please report any updates, errors, or omissions to feedback@texaspowerguide.com

Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUC-T) Sites

PowerToChoose.org is the de facto marketplace for many of the most cost effective plans in Texas. But it lacks adequate search capabilities, so Power To Choose cannot and should not be directly used to find the best plan.

Shopping Services Sites

These websites may consider your month-by-month electricity usage profile in their results, but TPG hasn’t verified this or their scope of plan coverage.

Aggregator/Broker Sites

These sites have limited search capabilities, only a subset of REP providers, and/or higher rates. For these reasons, TexasPowerGuide.com generally does not catalog offers unique to these sites. More details for these sites (and the REP’s themselves) can be found on the RateGrinder ‘REP_Info’ tab.

If you do happen to find the occasional hidden gem, add the EFL details into RateGrinder to check it against your usage before committing, then send us a link so we can let others know about it.
