Are your electric bills gobbling up your checking account? Maybe it’s time to switch power companies.

And RechargeTexas.com is here to help.

As a special Thanksgiving treat, the electric consumer website has released a new online video to walk Texans through the electricity buying process.

Which are better: fixed-rate deals or variable-rate deals? Where can you find company complaint data? And what about the fine print? Shopping for electricity can be tough. With scores of providers and hundreds of deals — nobody wants to be stuck with a turkey.

But the informative video lets you know what to ask before signing on the dotted line. It also provides great tips on how to weed the good players from the bad.

And all this from a source you know you can trust.

That’s because RechargeTexas.com is not operated by a for-profit electric company but by the non-profit Texas Coalition for Affordable Power.
