Fate Power Switch

Fate Power Switch - Can You Get A Better Power Deal?

During these unprecedented times, many of us are facing economic challenges and are looking for ways to save money and lower our monthly expenses. The Texas Power Switch is a program that makes it easy to lower your electricity bills, especially as we enter the hot summer months. 

With the approval of the City Council, the City of Fate is officially working with the Texas Power Switch to help residents save money on their electric bills.

What is the Texas Power Switch? 

The Texas Power Switch is a group energy switching program run by iChoosr, LLC and is licensed by the Public Utility Commission of Texas.  It gives residents the opportunity to join together and get a lower rate on electricity by asking energy providers to bid on the group’s business. 

There is no cost to the residents or the City for this service, nor does the City receive any compensation. This is a service exclusively designed to help residents save money.

Save on average $425 on your electric bills per year

Texans who switched in the last program are expected to save an average of $425 per year on their energy bills. The more people that participate, the greater the chances are of obtaining a competitive rate. Please keep in mind, there’s no fee to participate or obligation to switch.

Here’s how it works:

  • Have an electricity bill handy and visit www.texaspowerswitch.com/fate.
  • Register for free before May 19th, 2020. It only takes a few minutes. 
  • The Texas Power Switch will organize an auction among electricity providers and the lowest rate wins.
  • Participants will receive a personal offer email by June 5th, 2020 and then decide whether to accept the offer or not. 
  • Please remember that re-registration is required for each program

The power switch period moves through four phases:

Sign Up: Anyone living in a deregulated (ONCOR power grid) area can register for the Fate Power Switch

Rate Announcement: Providers will bid against each other in a reverse energy auction. The provider who offers the cheapest rate gets to offer you a new electricity contract.

Personal Offer: After the auction, residents will receive a personal offer which will outline the potential savings.

Accept/Decline: After residents receive their personal offer, they will have the option to accept or decline it. For those who accept, the Power Switch team will take care of the entire switching process.

Remember:  If you’ve already participated in a previous program, keep in mind that you have to re-register every year.

If you need help or have questions, email energy@texaspowerswitch.com or call 888-376-2077 

  • Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
