A few things to remember

Before making a final decision on your plan, review the Electricity Facts Label. You’ll discover:

  • The price per kWh per usage
  • The amount of electricity that comes from renewable sources
  • What the early termination fees are

Finalizing you set up. When you’re changing suppliers, once you’ve signed up for a plan and it’s been confirmed, Gexa Energy will finish the set-up process for you. The company will complete the switch with your utility or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) without any disruption of service.

Learn about your electricity bill. Your monthly bill will list your usage charges from Gexa Energy, along with delivery charges from your utility or TDSP. Your TDSP is also responsible for restoring outages and maintaining the power lines. If there is ever a power outage in your area, contact your local utility company, not Gexa Energy.
