I'm in the DFW area. Given that Austin is not deregulated like most of Texas, I'm curious what you pay per KW hour? I'm in the Oncor electric delivery area (my wife actually works there) but obviously use whatever retail electric provider that has the best fixed rates (about 8 cents/ KWh in my current contract.

For those outside of Texas that have heard stories of people getting hit with $5k+ electric bills... that is true but those people made the decision on their own to enter into a variable rate contract that clearly states the price will fluctuate with market rates that are based on supply and demand. I'm sure none expected that large of a price jump, but they knew the rates could change up or down and they gambled (wrongly) that rates would drop.


I pay my utilities on month-tomonth usage and after reading horror stories out of Texas I'm now tempted to change.
