It’s all about choice, and never more than in this city. The ability to choose a company with the same social viewpoint as you, and the ability to choose an electricity rate that fits in with your budget. If you’re looking for a company that’s dedicated to increasing its use of renewables, you’ll find that on the list. If bargain hunting is more your style, you’ll find that, too.
“  I just sign up with constellation @a month ago after my first bill which I paid. Unfortunately I was laid off and my next bill was approaching fast. I contacted customer service explain my situation and I have gain recent employment but need extension just until my first payday which would be almost 20 days from my original due date. The fact that they took the time understood my situation and no Hassel or jumping hoops just no problem and no disconnection. And to top that just pay what's due no late charges no fee for request or this is a onetime deal! I highly recommended this company. Thanks Constellation Energy  ”

Energy suppliers, on the other hand, negotiate deals with multiple natural gas and electricity providers. Buying large quantities of energy wholesale allows them to offer fixed rates, green energy and price protection programs to their customers. Energy is still delivered via your local utility (and that is still the company to call in the event of a power outage).
“  We signed a 7 month contract with GM energy when we bought our new house, and it has turned out to be the best, most honest company we have purchased electricity from in Texas. We've been burned by Reliant and more recently by Amigo. With Green Mountain, our rate was what they said it was. There were no shenanigans, just a low rate for 100pct wind power. They let us know when our contract was ending and I'm wishing that we had just stuck with them. My only complaint is that they wanted to raise our rate if we stayed with them, like every other TX electricity company does. So, we switched, got scammed by Amigo, and now we are trying Infinite Energy. It would have been cheaper to stay with a good company. I wish TX would just end deregulation or would protect consumers better from these vultures at the energy companies. ”

Companies across many industries use sales, promotions, and incentives to advertise and attract new customers — electric companies in deregulated states are no different. Many homes and businesses across the United States benefit from having the option to choose an electricity provider.  Of course, after the initial 3-month, 6 month, 12-month plan, etc. contract has expired with one provider, a home or business can switch to another provider offering services in that area. Since switching electricity companies is fairly easy, most providers offer different types of incentives to try and attract a competitor’s customers. But first things first. Before we get...

In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Texas deregulated its energy market in 2002. Basically, deregulation gave the majority of the Lone Star State, including Corpus Christi, the ability to pick energy suppliers from a pool of companies. The idea was that energy deregulation in Corpus Christi would push competitors to lower prices, consequently driving down energy bill costs for the consumer.

In Corpus Christi, 0% of people have switched to a plan that has some renewable energy component to it. Another 0% have switched to a plan that is partially renewable, while 0% have switched to a plan that powers homes completely by renewable electricity. This of course means that 100% of people have remained on a plan powered by traditional sources of electricity such as coal or nuclear power.
