RENO, Nev., Jan. 15, 2002 — Wattage Monitor, Inc. announced that its consumer information service, which provides electrical rate comparisons among competing electric suppliers, is available to Texas residential and business customers.
The free nationwide Wattage Monitor services allows residential consumers and businesses to simply enter their zip code and review specific electrical power pricing options from electric suppliers who have chosen to compete in their local area. The system is accessed on the Internet at www.wattagemonitor.com or through a toll-free phone service at 888-WATTAGE (928-8243).
In Texas, the Wattage Monitor service provides a complete listing of all competitive electric options for Texas consumers. Further, once consumers have researched their choices, they can switch their service directly from the Wattage Monitor system.
Wattage Monitor also has built and maintains the rates database for the Public Utilities Commission of Texas website, which will soon be launched at www.powertochoose.org.
“Texas is uniquely positioned to make electricity deregulation work; however, with any change of this magnitude, it is inevitable that there will be some confusion. The Wattage Monitor system will help consumers overcome any confusion and make quicker, more informed choices about their electric service,” said Wattage Monitor president Gerald Alderson.
