Candidate For Texas Speaker (King): "Going To Take A Look" At Texas Power To Choose Issues
Dave Lieber, Watchdog columnist for The Dallas Morning News, recently sat down with Texas State Rep. Phil King, who Lieber notes is campaigning to be Speaker of the House, concerning consumer concerns with the Texas PUC's Power to Choose website
Lieber quotes King as describing the shopping process as, "a little confusing," with King stating, "I'll make a personal commitment to you that I'm going to take a look at it ... You've got my attention on this renewed"
During the discussion with Lieber, King correctly notes that most customers don't use Power to Choose to shop. As previously reported, from September 2015 to August 2016, the Texas PUC's PowerToChoose website (including the Spanish-language domain) recorded some 985,000 unique visitors. The number of active residential ESI IDs with electric choice in ERCOT is about 6 million.
