Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great plan I am really enjoying the free electricity on the weekend. I try to reserve laundry, dishes, and vacuuming for the weekends. I've had a good experience thus far! I do wish a free evenings option was available. As a nurse, I work a lot of weekends and the free electricity evenings would be more beneficial for my rotating work schedule. This is why I also looked into TXU, because they do offer free evenings but I found the kw/hr was a higher charge. Overall, I am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most inexpensive, also honest I've had this for 4 months. When I called about signing up, they spent an hour with me as I asked about every charge. They actually include oncor in their kw charge. I have we have 5 kids here and window units, and my bill is still low

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We've been with this energy company for a year now and really enjoy our free weekends! My only complaint is when you have to change the date just a few days later when pay day just doesn't match up, you get charged 5% of your next bill on your next bill for it......but that is the only issue we have had with this company! Just a great company over all!(:

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great plan! I'm happy that I decided to get this plan, it's made a tremendous difference in my bill. The only thing I wish were more clearer is the time it goes from. For example Friday's from 5 to Sunday's to 5, it's just not very clear. But the plan itself I give a 10.
