Griddy vs. Other retail electric providers

It’s 10 p.m.—do you know what your energy rates are? Chances are, the answer is no. That’s because most Texas energy providers actually make money by keeping the true cost of energy a mystery. Most consumers have no idea how much energy they’re actually using each month, not to mention how much their providers are paying for green energy. Plus, retail energy providers (REPs) often tack hidden fees onto bills, charging customers for things that should be included—like customer service.

The Griddy difference.Griddy is a different kind of energy company that passes savings to the consumer by letting you know when energy prices are low and keeping our pricing transparent. You shouldn’t have to be a sleuth to discover how much your energy will cost each month. Here’s a quick comparison of us versus the other guys.

Simplicity

Griddy

Tired of surprises on your monthly bill? Our app updates energy prices every 15 minutes, so you’ll always know what you’re paying for energy.

Other Retailers

Many energy retailers are vague about how much energy you’re actually using, and they tier their rates so that your cost per kWh can suddenly jump. In other words: Monthly bills can be a lot higher than listed prices.

Fees

Griddy

With Griddy, what you see is what you get. We’ll never sneak hidden charges onto your monthly bill.

Other Retailers

Your monthly bill could include as many as 22 hidden fees. Some energy companies even charge extra for customer service calls or mailed disconnection notices. You might even be charged for using too little energy—the so-called “minimum usage” fee. These little charges add to the unpredictability of your bills.

Contract

Griddy

Griddy not for you? No problem. You can walk away at any time with no termination fee.

Other Retailers

Many REPs require customers to sign restrictive contracts that lock you into a costly relationship for years. You’ll also have to pay a hefty “disconnection fee” penalty for leaving early.

Renewable energy

Griddy

Our app turns green when energy is cheapest (i.e. renewable energy is on the grid), so you know the most eco-friendly time to run the dishwasher—and save money doing it, too.

Other Retailers

The other guys offer no indication when green energy is on the grid. In fact, their “100% green” energy could be dirt cheap, years-old wind credits they’re selling back to the consumer at a premium.

Pricing

Griddy

Energy costs less when there’s more of it on the grid. Our real-time pricing scheme passes those savings onto consumers.

Other Retailers

Other providers also get a discount on days with high levels of renewable energy, but they keep their inflated, fixed-rate prices the same, maximizing their profits by keeping your energy bills high.
