    My light bill has literally gone down 60% cheaper with Discount Power! Excellent customer service and always helpful! 5 STARS! Love my light company! from Hitchcock TX

    GOOD COMPANY
    Its a good experience with discount power they have good plans for fixed and variable rates. Martin from MD

    After 12 months of service. Zero issues. Great prices all year.
    I used GeekYourRate. com and found Discount Power as one of my top choices. Part way through the year they it sounded like they were bought out by Pennywise Power. After about 5 months of this it went back to Discount Power. Then entire 12 months I received great rates. Cheapest year I spent on electric in over 5 years. 100% renewable wind energy. I have no complaints and would do it again. 1 year later... here's my review from Lake Dallas TX

    Good pricing but basic website

    I would recommend some of the plans from this company - the pricing seems to be very reasonable so far for my usage. The website is very basic though. There isn't any information given except how much energy you used in the previous month and how much your bill is. Other companies include usage graphs that track how much you use each month compared with the average temperature outside. Additionally, other companies give you data about how much you have used thus far in the month so you can plan ahead if you're using too much energy. I miss these features but the low cost makes it worth it for me.

    Nickel and dime you with fees

    Overall, I haven't had an issue with Discount Power until one month where things were busy and I overlooked my bill for a couple weeks. Most honest companies will warn you about being disconnected for non-payment when the next month bill comes out. Not so with DP, instead within only a couple weeks of not paying your bill they send you a disconnect notice so they can greedily charge you a $20 disconnect notice fee. Then they add insult to injury by also charging a late fee. I could understand if it was going on to next month and no payment had been made, but a couple weeks... Really?! Disappointed and can't wait to switch to a more honest company.

    Extra charges

    The only company I've ever seen that charges a late fee AND a disconnect notice fee, even if it's just 1 day late. So they actually charge me $20 on top of late fee for being just 1 day late. You think they would send you an email. I guess they'd rather tack on a $20 extra fee.
