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 consider your month-by-month electricity usage profile in their results. They feature varying coverage scopes and user interface formats.

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.
