But what about all the other stuff?

Reliability of Service – The reliability of service is exactly the same for all Texas electricity providers.  That is because Cirro or whatever company you choose as your electric provider is not the party responsible for actually delivering electricity to your home and responding to outages.  This responsibility falls on the regional utilities called TDUs (Transmission Distribution Utility).  Any retail electric provider is going to have the same TDU responsible for maintaining the power lines.  This is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the Texas electricity market and the one that keeps many people from shopping for better rates.  It doesn’t matter if you are with Cirro, or Reliant or anyone else, if your power goes out in Dallas you call Oncor.  If your power goes out in Houston you call Centerpoint.

Average Billing – Cirro offers average billing.  This will keep your bills a little more even by paying based on an average of the pass 12 month’s bills.  This will likely make your summer bills a little lower and your spring and fall bills a little higher.

Auto Pay – Cirro offers Auto Pay as an option.  But, honestly, so does just about everyone else.

Business Electricity – Cirro offers both residential and commercial service
