@medge I misunderstood what the news was saying last night. The Texas Public Utility Commission will be involuntarily switching customers on some wholesale and variable rate plans to TXU. I wish I wouldn't have panicked and switched because I'd I would had stayed with my previous wholesale electricity provider, they would have been paying me for electricity I use right now. I can't switch back while investigations are going on. I probably won't be refunded my $2,000 electricity bill for the first week of February and the days leading up to the freeze. Here is the story about Texans being involuntarily switched companies below. You were asking about how we don't know about the prices with our prepaid wholesale electricity. We have an app that shows the real time market prices we are being charged and can leave at any time. You prepay your electricity account and when it drops below $20, it recharges your electricity account from your debit card or credit card immediately. It was great because we were paying such low costs for energy until this happened and we just paid a $10 membership fee to get the electricity prices that the electric companies pay for their electricity, which is usually very little.
