Go to various websites and Google "Switch Holds" and "Texas" and you will find that companies are forcing people who even call in "Before" their bills are even due to ask for a few extra days to agree to give up their free market rights to be able to choose different electricity providers. Companies are forcing everyone to agree to have their accounts held hostage or they won't work with you at all no matter how good a customer you've been.
Especially First Choice Power.
There have been people forced to stay in places without electricity with small children in freezing temperatures because First Choice Power and others chose to bully them and would not allow them to even start making payments on a balance holding out to get the entire amount.
It was stated with the PUC came up with this, Commissioner Kenneth Anderson was worried it would one day be abused. It is now being abused.
Shame on Donna Nelson, Kenneth Anderson Jr. and Rolando Pablos for buckling under pressure and agreeing with these powerful groups to, in my opinion, strip the rights away from Texans! They don't care about the average, hardworking Texan because they were appointed by the Governor who doesn't seem to be the brightest bulb in the shop!
