There are many different options for term lengths in the Texas energy market. Different term lengths often have different price points, so if you’re more flexible with the length of your contract, you could get a cheaper rate. Contracts with shorter term lengths are great if you prefer to avoid a long-term commitment while longer contracts usually provide the benefit of longer-term price stability.
Green Mountain Energy believes that cleaner energy means a cleaner world. Since 1997, Green Mountain Energy has been on a mission to use the power of consumer choice to change the way power is made.

Since then, Green Mountain Energy has built quite a following of renewable energy supporters in Texas who have made a significant positive difference on the environment. That’s the reason Green Mountain Energy exists. For almost 20 years, they’ve been using sun and wind to offer cleaner energy products that protect the environment.

This information is compiled by the Public Utility Commission of Texas from publicly available information from the Retail Electric Providers and PUC approved price to beat rates (through December 2006) using representative usage levels. Rates are calculated using the Commission Approved Residential Load Profile for each service area. The PUC makes no recommendation with respect to any REP. Although we believe these prices are accurate, the PUC makes no warranty that the prices in this table are currently being offered. Please contact the relevant REP for their current pricing offers and terms of service. Information on how to select a REP and contact information for REPs is located at www.powertochoose.com.
The complaints filed against providers aren't a perfect mirror of the J.D. Power customer satisfactions scores. Just Energy, which earned only two J.D. Power Circles and earned the second-lowest score, had only 21 complaints recorded with the Public Utility Commission. But it's helpful to view these complaints in aggregate: Over 50 percent of the 1,119 total complaints fall under "billing" — another reason to seek out a provider with high customer satisfaction in that area in particular.
Consumers throughout Texas were empowered by the state’s decision to deregulate energy in 2002. In a deregulated market, you are able to shop around for energy plans that fit your budget. Energy companies in your area have responded by offering lowered rates and other incentives. Before selecting an Our Energy plan, you should look at all available plans in your area.
