PowerToChoose needs to smarten up so it can’t be manipulated.
Apples-to-apples comparison is crucial. Add Oncor’s 3.5-cent-per-kilowatt-hour rate to all offers so customers know the full price.
Tricks to confuse customers — credits, minimum fees, penalties for too much or too little usage and more — must stop.

Door-to-door electricity salespeople, who will, in many cases, say or do anything to make you switch companies, need oversight.
