Please use AAnslie12940 for $25 OFF 1st Month's Bill via a bill credit :) Please read my review all the way through as I have been a customer for over a year and disagree with negative reviews out there. Please use my code only if you like what I had to say. Thank you for your support!REVIEW : I was a first time apartment renter / bill payer and I chose Champion based on the several good reviews I saw on the company. So far I have been satisfied with the service and communication. After signing up, I have had to make several calls to verify online account information, and the customer service was great! They answered all of my questions and responded positively to any concerns. Their online web client is slightly clunky when trying to change info, but a quick chat with their reps fixed all issues I had and the account changes were immediately viewable. I have signed up for ACH transfer payments, and that went as smooth as possible, being deducted from my account next day! As far as rates go, The company seemed to have some of the lowest in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I locked in for a 12 month plan, but they had variable rate plans as well. I will see how I feel come renewal time, but so far so good! I would definitely recommend Champion to anyone looking for energy services in the DFW metro. Thank you for reading my review and have a wonderful day :)1-Year UPDATE Thanks to those who have used my referral code. I have had the lowest electric bills I have ever had in my life! I currently have a credit / negative balance on my account! Probably won't find that at too many other electric companies. I have been a customer for 12 months and have had zero problems with Champion. I do not know why people give them bad reviews. They have always been extremely helpful with customer service and with all these bill credits, I have been able to put that money towards other things I really care about. Thanks again for letting me refer you!1 Year, 3 Month UPDATE: Thank you again for supporting me by using my referral code. The savings that Champion offers to its customers is simply unheard of. There is no limit to the amount of referrals credits you can receive and continue to save month to month. I have nothing negative to say about Champion as nothing negative has come up! My electricity is always running, my bills are always emailed to me, my credit card is auto drafted each month (except for the fortunate months where I have a a bill credit!), it's simple and very functional. No complaints yet with over 15 months in!2+ Year UPDATE: I just signed on for a third year with Champion! Their customer service is still top notch and they have been consistently competitive in their rates. Review the other companies for yourself and you will see. Their referral program is excellent. Please take advantage and sign on today!Please use AAnslie12940 as your referral code at sign up to receive a $25 bill credit on your 1st or 2nd month's bill. This also earns me a $25 bill credit for referring you. I would greatly appreciate it if you chose to use my code after reading my review. Thank you to all those who do!

Good Choice! Please use STolentino86445!Want to get $25 bill credit? It's easy just use my referral code STolentino86445, by referring a friend/family, you will receive a $25.00 bill credit after the first 60 days of the new enrollment. I recently moved to Texas and looked for the most affordable electricity provider. I did check online and read the reviews, and even tried their online chat to check how they will handle inquiries. I chose Champion for so many reasons. First, they have a great customer service! They assisted me throughout my application and I got a response right away on my queries. I gave them the date of my move-in in my apartment and I got electric connection without any problem. Their billing is so easy to comprehend and you have a choice to receive it thru email or hard copy.They provide customers a weekly report of the electricity usage so customers will know and can budget their electric bill in a month. . Other electric companies will charge customers for a fee if they don't reach the required kwh usage. With Champion, I enjoyed the rates even though I am just using 393Kwh per month. Some electric provider will ask you to pay for a usage charge when monthly usage is below 800 kWh during a billing cycle.There's no hidden charges - customers only pay for the electric usage, Oncor charges and the Taxes. I did refer friends to use Champion and they are happy using it.And I would continue recommending it to others. I'm just glad I made a right choice and hope you'll do the same too!

One of my best decisions in 2012 (TBratton17789)I intentionally waited 3 months to provide feedback to ensure that my review was a true account of my experience thus far. Previously, I had been serviced by a reputable provider since 1997 and hadn’t taken the time to shop providers. So glad I finally did because I couldn’t be happier with my choice, Champions Energy Services (CES). Compared several companies and read service reviews and ratings prior to finalizing decision. CES was one of the top 3 after making all comparisons. One of the other providers listed in my top 3 sent me a mailing which offered an attractive rebate; however, once I ran the numbers it wasn’t much of a rebate since the price p/kWh was higher, so decided to go with CES. The transfer was seamless, didn’t even require that I contact the old provider…CES took care of everything. Very user friendly website and billing process is quite comprehensive. Overall, no problems at all and each month bills have continued to decrease. OMG…I went from paying an average of $500/mth in the summer (with previous provider) to just getting my November bill which is a whopping $94.04. They even offer incentive to current customers who refer others, so please try Champions Energy Services and be sure to include my referral code (TBratton17789). I promise you won’t be disappointed!!!

ATTN: ENERGY USERS & upcoming energy buyers! (I saved $50/mo!) Use referral: FMitchell12694 and you'll get $25 off your FIRST MONTHS BILL!!http://www.championenergyservices.com/programs/referral-program/caf.asp?referralID=FMitchell12694 I hold a small apartment in Chicago, which I travel too for business each month and needed AFFORDABLE ENERGY, as I was paying $80+ each month and it was ridiculous! I switched over to Champion in August and my apartment energy NOW runs $25 to $35 a month. I had NO IDEA until now, but 99% of energy providers build in "hidden fees" for things like: reading your meter, preparing your statement, monthly-meter cost, etc. I dropped a few cents on the KwH on my new plan, but where I am really saving is NOT having to pay those hidden fees! Plus, their quality of service is AWESOME and the transition from my previous provider to Champion was a BREEZE; all I had to do was give them my meter number, which I had on my previous statement, and we were good to go! Remember: save $25 your first month by clicking the link below or using code: FMitchell12694 on their home page! Can energy get any better???

EXCELLENT so far!!!! I'm 1.5 years in and very very happy with my choice.**Please use my referral code LDivel42988 when setting up your account to receive a $25 credit off your first bill! Thanks!**After a lot of research, I chose Champion because this company provides wonderful customer service at a very fair and low cost. Compared to all the other companies I looked at, Champion had the lowest minimum kWh usage and the lowest fee for going under that minimum kWh usage. Other companies advertised a lower energy rate but had higher fees for not reaching a minimum kWh usage, so Champion actually ends up costing me less! Also, every time I call I reach someone at customer service right away, and they have been very nice and helpful on the phone. Setting up my service was easy and straightforward online at http://www.championenergyservices.com/. Finally, I like how you can recommend friends and both of you get a $25 referral credit if they use your referral ID (please remember to use mine: LDivel42988). Overall, Champion is a quality company and I highly recommend them.

I couldn't be happier switching to Bounce Energy. With various rewards program including rewards for paying on-time every month, discounts for auto-pay/e-billing plus the ability to play with the build your own calculator to find their cheapest rate switching from Reliant Energy was a no brainer. I locked in a 15 month rate that was 20% cheaper than Reliant's best un-published plan. I picked e-billing option, auto pay, no thanks on Green and a 15 month fixed rate was the winning combo for me. Plus I got a $25 visa gift card at sign-up, quarterly rewards and a $50 credit ( promo code:1572239) after my first three months. Thanks to the rewards program and cheaper rates I'm saving about $250/year over Reliant Energy. The only downside is I usually have to wait a few minutes before I can talk to someone. They should improve that a bit. Also make sure you follow up on your rewards by completely the 3rd party acceptance emails. Other than that I highly suggest you make the switch to Bounce Energy.

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.
