“  I've NEVER had a problem with StarTex. I've had several others and their rates and fees always increase. Startex doesn't have the lowest rate, but they are about in the middle. I always use the "AMI" promotional code when I renew and it gives me the cheapest possible price...typically about .2 cents off per kWh. I pay via my banks bill pay system and have never had an issue. They send me monthly bills, they send me renewal notices, and their customer service has always been prompt and courteous. I would highly recommend StarTex for a reliable, cost efficient, and good power company. ”
“  The day after I posted a review on this web site, a StarTex representative contacted me about my review. She lowered the minimum usage fee to $4.99 and the minimum kWh threshold to 500. She renegotiated my contract to my full satisfaction, and now I'm a very happy customer. I wish I had been able to amend my earlier review, but instead, I just posted a new one here.

For the past several decades, the Nevada energy market has been a monopoly controlled by the utility NV Energy.  NV Energy has controlled the price homes and businesses have paid for electricity for decades.  Unhappy?  Too bad. On November 6, you can do something about it. On November 6th, residents of Nevada can go to the polls and vote yes on question 3.  Voting yes will open the energy market to competition — homes and businesses will be able to shop around for their electricity provider.   You’ll be able to choose the electric rate and plan that’s right for you. 3 Reasons to Vote Yes on Question 3 New Jobs.  If voters say yes to question 3 on November 6th, some estimate that 34,000 new jobs will be created in the Silver State.  One company in particular that is interested in moving to (and hiring in!) Nevada is Google.  Google purchased land to build a massive datacenter in Northern Nevada but before investing money they’ve requested alternatives to NV Energy.

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...

Texas deregulated most of the state's electricity markets in 2002, a move aimed at lowering electricity costs by letting consumers choose their own electric power providers and their own plans. Some parts of Texas continued to be regulated, including those that get power from municipal utilities, electric cooperatives and investor-owned utilities that operate outside the state's primary power grid.

Residents get to choose their provider as there are many different ones serving the area. With a total of 7.5 million customers, Oncor Electric Delivery manages Fort Worth's utility service areas and distributes power to residences. Although residents can only have Oncor Electric Delivery as their utility company, they get their choice of suppliers. Several energy providers serve Fort Worth, and it can sometimes be hard for people to know which service to select. Choose Energy helps connect consumers with reliable energy companies such as TriEagle Energy, TXU Energy and Direct Energy.
