Texans urged to remember discount programs

AUSTIN, TX 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.
