Why group energy switching?

When Texas lawmakers deregulated the state's electricity market in 2002, the idea was to make power cheaper for Texans. New providers could enter the market to create more competition and more competition would lead to lower electricity rates.

Even though 85% of Texans have a choice in energy providers, many still haven’t switched and are overpaying for electricity. By joining the Texas Power Switch, cities can help these disengaged residents make the switch and save money.

Deregulation did half the job…

Before deregulation, the provider and the utility (TDU) were the same company. Due to a lack of competition electricity prices increased.

Now, 16 years later there are over 50 different providers active in Texas and – if you look hard enough – you can find yourself a good electricity rate. Nevertheless, still 50% of Texans have never switched provider. These households are currently overpaying hundreds of dollars per year for their electricity.

With group energy switching cities can help Texan households – and in particular disengaged people – save money on their electricity bill.

A new group energy switching program has started. Register for free and without obligation by August 21. The goal is to give households an opportunity to group together in order to receive a better electricity rate.

Texas Power Switch

for Texas' residents

Hassle free switch

This is where iChoosr comes in: we make switching easy. We group people with other electricity users who, like them, are looking for a better deal. Once we have a group of participants gathered, we hold an auction and let electricity providers bid against each other. The providers who offers the cheapest deals win the auction. iChoosr then takes care of the whole switching process and offers high quality support before, during and after the switch.

 

iChoosr believes that, by removing the hassle of shopping around for electricity, we encourage people to switch more thereby unlocking their savings and leaving them more money in their pockets.
