I totally agree with everything i just read. I'm in battle with them right now. We bought this mobile home 3 years ago never notice anything wrong until this past week that they came to replace meters come outs that the meter was tampered who knows since when they shut off my electricity call the cops and they told me that i have to pay 4000 dlls for unbilled electricity and 1000 dlls deposit what in the world but they never checked this meters before a new person signs the contract with them. When i review my billing history from day one my bills were consistant not major change on my bills obviously hotter days higher the bill or colder fays higher the bill, but the company is assuming my usage and that's how they came up with this crazy amount. I have little children and they didn't care so now i have to hire a lawyer because they will not connect my power until i sign an agreement to pay that amount. And i will not sign that agreement because those charges are not my resposability.

This place will NEVER get a good review from me or my friends or family, if I could I would have gone to GEUS a LONG time ago. If your moving to Greenville, or maybe just buying a new house in Greenville and your electric company is FEC... BUY another house! Don't set your self up for the head aches and stupidity that are to follow. I called 3 times today to get the balance on my electricity (its pay as you go) and they wouldn't tell me, so they were just going to leave me blind until I got off work and got home to see if my electricity was still on, but then IF my electricity was OFF and by the time I got home and realized it was off, they would have been closed so I would have gone a whole day with no electricity in this 100 degree weather. This place is a JOKE, full of stupidity and ignorance. I didn't even EVER imagine that there could be a company or people just so ignorant, but I was proven wrong, from now on when I call I will immediately ask for a manager and talk with them.

Love our new air conditioner they put in for us. We will call them from now on. They cleaned up after working and had respect for our home. They know their business thats for sure.

I have never dealt with a company so asinine. I just moved into my house, and they held me hostage to either pay a $1000 prepayment OR get my electricity cut off on my wife and 3 little boys. Their reasoning, my credit score was 5% lower than they want. Now, just so you understand, I make over 6 figures. I just bought a $300,000 house and was qualified by the bank despite the extra stringent requirements banks have since the implosion years ago. I spent $15,000 on putting energy upgrades into the house...I have very little debt because I believe in paying cash...but my credit is so bad that they need a prepayment of $1000 for "their protection" to make sure I pay my payments on time, and if I don't, I lose that money. And in the meantime, I won't get my money back for OVER A YEAR.If you are in an area of Wylie where you have a choice between electric companies (I am not), then choose StarTexPower or anyone else you can. These guys are a ripoff and treat their customers like crap.[UPDATE 2014-05-20] After over a year of paying our payments, my wife and I switched who was handling the bills, so we ended up 20 days late on our bill. There was no outstanding balance prior to this month...just the current month's past due, and they shut off our electricity. Never in my life have I had such a horrible electric company. A mere 35 days after the invoice is sent, they shut off your power.

Like the way this company does business. They were competitive with their prices, truly felt as if I got a great deal on my new air conditioner.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
