Texans urged to remember discount programs

July 15, 2009 12:35:49 PM PDT
Texas utility regulators are calling attention to special electric rate discount programs as demand peaks during the long, hot summer. The Public Utility Commission of Texas reminds consumers that electric power retailers are offering prices of less than a dime per kilowatt hour.

PUC officials also say discounts for low-income electricity users are being increased through Aug. 1 to about three cents per kilowatt hour. A PUC statement issued Wednesday says that means a rate cut of 17 to 30 percent.

Consumers can get immediate pricing information by phone at 866-797-4839 or on the Internet at www.powertochoose.org. LITE-UP Texas Program applications for low-income consumers are available at 866-454-8387 or 877-399-8939.
