“  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. ”

So, you just found out — whether you read our blog post that broke the news or got a letter in the mail — that Breeze Energy is no longer in business in the state of Texas. For starters, you’re not alone.  There are almost 10,000 customers, homes, businesses, apartment complexes, etc., that are no longer able to get their electricity through Breeze Energy. What are my options?  Well, your immediate option is to do nothing.  This is a very bad option, however, as you’re currently at the Provider of Last Resort (POLR).  Simply put:  yes, your electricity is still on, but you’re paying a very high rate for it.  The good news is that there is no contract or agreement with a POLR and you’re free and very much encouraged to switch to an alternative retail energy provider as soon as possible.

Based on some new information from the EIA, and other government news outlets, it look like solar and wind generated power is starting to take over the renewable energy landscape.  In fact, the EIA estimates that wind has already surpassed hydroelectricity generation.
