Your power won’t go out
There’s no risk in switching providers. If you decide to leave your current energy company to find a better deal, you don’t need to worry about your power suddenly going out.
It’s against the law in Texas for a supplier to shut off a consumer’s electricity simply because they decided to switch.
State lawmakers included this safeguard when they worked to deregulate the energy market.
It’s also important to remember that the utility provider you purchase your power from is typically separate from the company that handles the distribution and transmission of the energy from the grid to your home or business.
The distribution and transmission utility has no stake in which supplier you take your business to.
If you use ComparePower to find your best electricity plan, there is no catch. There are no hidden fees. No bias.
