Remarkably, the average electric rate in Corpus Christi of 10.98 cents per kWh matches the statewide Texas average.3 That would seem to be a good indication for residents of the Sparkling City by the Sea. The only problem is that the median household income in Corpus Christi is $19,341—67 percent less than the national average.4 Which, if you’re anything like most Corpus Christians, makes getting a competitive, fixed rate all the more important.

No, there will be no interruption in your electricity service when you switch to Amigo Energy. On the day you start with Amigo Energy, your Advanced Meter System (AMS) will report your usage to your previous electric provider as final usage to generate a final bill. From the day you start with Amigo Energy, your usage will be reported to Amigo Energy and included in your first bill. You will not be billed for the same usage from two companies.


As a result, 85% of Texas power consumers (those served by a business not owned by an utility or a town cooperative) can select their electricity service from a range of retail electrical companies (resellers), or the incumbent energy company. The incumbent provider in the area still owns and preserves the regional power lines (and is the company to hire the occasion of a power blackout) and is not subject to deregulation. Customers served by cooperatives or local utilities can select an alternate electricity provider but only if they have actually “opted-in” to deregulation.

However, there are individuals out there who try to take advantage of consumers. They run...
It’s recently come to our attention that there are some fairly substantial market changes that are impacting commercial customer electricity statements. These market changes have to do with something called the 4 Coincident Peak (4CP) program. If you participated in this program in 2016, then you might have already noticed that your utility has sent you new charges. The reason for this is because they have determined that your meter’s “demand element” has changed. But what do these changes really mean? What is the 4CP program and why are utilities suddenly applying new charges? And how can you benefit from...

When you receive your electricity bill at the end of the month, you will see many different charges included.
