The price for electricity is difficult to estimate when comparing one company to another. Often, only one rate is shown in advertising but there are actually three rates; one for 500 kWh, one for 1000 kWh and another for 2000 kWh. The number of kWh each home uses varies from month to month. The method I used for deciding which energy company was best for me was by computing my monthly average kWh for each month over the past two years. I made a spread sheet into which I could enter the three price rates for each company (500, 1000 and 2000). For LOTS of different plans for LOTS of energy companies, I computed my cost for energy for one year based on my historical average kWh per each month of the year. 4Change Energy offered the lowest rates for my usage. When comparing companies, be aware that some companies use step changes in price between 500, 1000 and 2000 kWh while other companies use interpolated changes in price between 500, 1000 and 2000 kWh - it's really time-consuming to compare prices between energy companies!

It’s hard to distinguish one company from another in the very competitive Greater Dallas area utility (electricity) billing companies. Over the long term, they all even-out with not a nickel’s worth of difference among them. So, how do you choose? You choose the company that makes life easy for you – a community based company that makes charitable contributions in your behalf, makes it easy to do business with, talks in plain English to simplify things, and even makes it fun to do business with them. A company that has really good people and great customer service. That company is 4Change energy. I’m a very happy customer of theirs, who had an issue with an expired credit card on file with them. I dealt with Tina Collins in their customer service department. Tina Collins was very good – very professional, excellent word choices, never got flustered, and really kept her composure. That was impressive as I’m sure I gave her a pretty hard time!

I just wanted to say that I just got my first bill from 4Change and I saved over $130 from my previous provider! I usually sign up on 12 month plans and had just kept renewing with my old company because I didn't want to take the time to make the switch. So glad I did because it took me no more than 5 minutes, the switch happened the same day and the savings has been worth it.The only reason I gave them 4 stars w... view moreas because they do require that you be on auto draft and I prefer not to do that. However, I received my first bill today and the bill was correct, as was the amount they debited my account, and it was on the day they said they would. I guess it was nice not having to worry about writing a check or logging into my online account to manually pay.I'll keep my eyes open and let everyone know if I have any issues, but so far, so good.

We just switched to 4Change Energy from TXU and so far do not have a good first impression. 4Change Energy did not send us the initial bill so after about 20 days of sign up we went online to pay. Then a week later they send a disconnect notice. Of course it was already out of date since we did pay on time, but it just was very annoying and unprofessional. So I contacted the service department about this issue and wanted to make sure it did not happen again. Well right away I can tell that this is a, its never our fault - the customer must have done something wrong, company. Their responses were not directly rude but they definitely were not nice. So they need to work on billing and service professionalism.

We moved here from California 10 years ago, and after getting ripped off from the other well known electric companies (3 in total), I am pleased to see a bill from 4Change Energy that reflects a reasonable amount. I recommended them to my tenants but no coverage area in that area code, please check them out they are by far the most reasonably price service ever!!!

I have had 4Change Energy going on 2 years now, and i have never experienced any issues with their service, rates and customer care team. I pay month to month, auto bill pay. My highest bill to date was this past January and it was only $115. I stay in a 1000 sqft town home that is two stories. I recommend this company to my friends and give them a great review.

We had 2 lights in the stairway that needed to be replaced to have a fixture that the light bulb could more easily changed. They worked from the attic and replaced both in short order. They are very good, honest and reasonable!

I saved a little over $26 my first full month of service (643 kWh) in changing services and I know that some of the money goes to a charitable cause, thank God. Ask what the Company Rate plus the TDU delivery rate will be.
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.
