Be innovative and up to date and a Texas electricity provider and be among the best, according to the company Texas Electricity Ratings, which offers daily electricity rates for consumers on its website and says it strives to bring "transparency" to the state's retail market.
Plans for innovation, use of smart meters and home energy efficiency, online order experience and mobile friendliness are among the criteria used by the company for its latest rankings of state retail electricity providers, with Houston's Champion Energy rated number one.
Gexa Energy, StarTex Power, Green Mountain Energy and Direct Energy, in that order, complete the top five, Texas Electricity Ratings said.
The companies outscored more than 35 other Texas electricity retailers to head the list.
Texas Electricity Ratings, by way of explanation for its latest power retailer ranking, said "Gexa Energy finished second in the top five with straightforward competitive pricing and outstanding customer outreach programs.
"StarTex Power's jump to the number three position was powered by affordability, including several straightforward low-rate plans and their customer communications.
"In the number four position, Green Mountain Energy's vision for green, renewable energy, plan innovation, and solar options resonated.
"Direct Energy's move into smart home technology, great customer communication, and social media outreach propelled them into 5th place overall.
"Every single electricity provider in the top five ranked well in 'The Basics,' which includes customer order experience, dependable billing practices, and simple, straightforward plans."
