Discount Power® Reviews (900+ Verified)

When searching for energy provider reviews, you’ll find a number of electricity review sites that also offer energy plans and have a conflict of interest. We recommend that you check certified reviews on multiple, high-volume, established review websites that don’t market electricity and have no potential conflicts. Google alone has over 600 Discount Power reviews.

Discount Power, a subsidiary of NRG Energy, is a well-established electricity company. You’ll find details about the Texas light company on our Discount Power profile page.

Please note that often a disproportionate number of customers who post reviews about energy companies do so when they have had a bad experience, so ratings may be skewed. Consider looking for patterns in customer comments rather focus on composite ratings.

At Home Energy Club, we only show vetted Texas electricity plans using our TrustPlan process to help you find the best electricity rate and plan for your home in Texas, and avoid potential bill surprises.

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

While the consumer-driven comparison site works to help consumers avoid expensive bill surprises, state-run Power to Choose has been the subject of relentless customer complaints in the past. Complaints relate to misleading information about electric companies and the quality of their services. Here are some red flags regarding the government comparison site:

  • Gimmicks: Energy companies may game their system by posting gimmick plans which cause bill shocks
  • Bill surprises: Texas residents may be billed for unexpectedly high amounts
  • Shutdown possible: State leaders have held discussions about shutting the site down
  • Concerns: The Public Utility Commission Chairman has publicly voiced concerns on the viability of such as government site

Because Home Energy Club uses a trusted vetting process called TrustPlan™, it is the best alternative to Power to Choose in Texas, and the best comparison site for reducing the odds of electricity bill surprises.

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.
