Below you’ll find certified reviews and ratings from Google, Yelp and Consumer Affairs, and also links to Ambit information from the Public Utility Commission of Texas.

What are problems with electricity company review sites?

Home Energy Club has recognized the need consumers have for reliable review sources because each of the current types of review sites are known to give consumers distorted impressions of energy providers and the level of service they provide:

  • Texas electricity review sites: customer reviews are curated on some sites in a way that gives advantage to companies that pay them higher fees. Home Energy Club does not sell special treatment.
  • Major independent review sites: generic review sites are sometimes “gamed” so that unethical providers have undeserved high ratings.
  • Government comparison sites: the Power to Choose Texas site and other government energy rate sites generally lack quality control, resulting in unscrupulous manipulation of site results and consumers getting costly bill surprises.

Numerous independent sources are used by so that Texas consumers can decide about their energy provider and plan based on more reliable information.

Why does Power to Choose (government site) get many complaints?

For years, consumer complaints have plagued Power to Choose, the electricity comparison site run by the state government. The problem is due to a lack of quality control, which has resulted in the following:

  • Consumers are often tricked by gimmicky plans… because electric companies “game” the website to gain a ranking advantage, causing consumers to have shocking bill surprises.
  • The question of whether to shut down the site… has been debated by state leaders, and the Public Utility Commission chairman suggested re-examining the feasibility of allowing the government to run the commercial comparison site. has become the best alternative to Power to Choose in Texas. With the consumer-friendly site’s commitment to cutting tricky gimmick plans that lead to bill surprises using the TrustPlan™ process, the free service has filled a market need for consumer-friendly electricity plans.

You should always read a plan’s EFL details to decide if it’s a fit for you, but our system does the tedious math to help you compare estimated costs. Of course, your future bill amounts will depend on your future usage.

You will find a widget on Home Energy Club which fetches your home’s energy usage data from Smart Meter Texas (SMT) and runs calculations of the rate structures of energy plans to help you conveniently estimate the cost of energy plans you are considering, based on your prior 12 months of energy usage as reported by SMT.

In one of the text panels of the widget, you will see an authorization button. By checking the permission box above the fields in which you enter your name and email address, and clicking on the authorization button, you are authorizing Smart Meter Texas to provide us with your location’s energy usage information so that our system can run cost calculations. It’s important to note that errors can occur when developing and running calculations, and the Company does not guarantee that its cost numbers are correct. You should always read the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) for each energy plan you are considering before enrolling, and make an independent decision on whether the plan is an appropriate fit for your home based on your own calculations and all the information disclosed by energy providers in the EFL.
