With Griddy, you sign up for a monthly membership and get access to the wholesale price of electricity. Your monthly membership is based on your usage for the past year. All other costs, like TDU delivery charges, taxes and fees, are passed through to you without markup.
The grid is an interesting and magical thing. It takes energy from generators (a mix of natural gas, coal, wind, solar and nuclear energy) and moves it along the poles and wires (that are maintained by your TDU) to your business. And voila! You can power your lights.
The wholesale price of electricity is set by the grid operator, ERCOT, and can change every five minutes depending on supply and demand. When there is excess energy on the gird, prices drop and can even go negative, which means you are getting paid to use electricity (awesome!). And when demand is high like on hot summer days, prices can spike. The highest the price can go to is $9/kWh (which has only ever happened 0.005% of the time.) Most of the time, though, 96% to be exact, it stays below the Texas Average of 6¢/kWh.
It is this wholesale cost of electricity + TDU delivery charges + taxes and fees that we pass along to you without mark up for a monthly membership.View Historical Pricing

We’re proud to introduce Griddy's 8-Point Inspection program – a free service that seeks to help our business members understand their TDU (transmission and distribution utilities) passthrough costs and how they can use that information to shift usage and save. Our 8-Point Inspection can save businesses in the hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of dollars a year.Tell Me More
So when my last electricity contract ended, I decided to try something new and signed up with @GoGriddy instead. It's early days still, but my last full month with my old provider was around $250. So far this month, I'm #OnPace to rack up about $100. I'd call that a win.
I switched from Reliant Energy to Griddy back in April. It has been the best investment since that switch! I did pay a cancellation fee, but I made it up in 2 months due to Griddy's better rates for electricity. The app always keeps you in the know about the hourly rates & customer support has been great.
If you love paying too much for electricity, Griddy is really going to disappoint you. Wholesale prices plus a $9.99 monthly membership fee is as low as you can possibly pay. Prices sometimes go into the NEGATIVES -- meaning you earn money by using electricity (whaaa????) I love Griddy.
