Feb. 8 — One consumer watchdog said it would be a disservice to Texans shopping for electricity to eliminate Power to Choose.
“It provides an important service,” said R.A. Dyer, policy analyst for the Texas Coalition for Affordable Power in Austin, which buys electricity on behalf of municipal governments. He said it’s important for the Public Utility Commission to oversee the website that provides a way for consumers to compare plans.
Is a policy analyst for TCAP, a coalition of cities and other political subdivisions that purchase electricity in the deregulated market for their own governmental use. Because high energy costs can impact municipal budgets and the ability to fund essential services, TCAP, as part of its mission, actively promotes affordable energy policies. High energy prices also place a burden on local businesses and home consumers.
