Farmers Branch Power Switch 2018

Using energy broker iChoosr, the City of Farmers Branch plans to offer the opportunity for residents to benefit from volume buying of power in order to lower individual monthly bills with Texas Power Switch 4. Data shows that the last three power switches saved households in the program an average of $368 annually.

There is no cost and no obligation associated with the program. It provides a mechanism to help residents better understand the confusing, deregulated energy market and potentially provide a pathway to saving money on electric bills. The more people that register for the program, the better the opportunity for the broker to make a low-cost deal.

A number of other Texas cities, including Lake Dallas and Richland Hills, are participating in the program.

  The power switch period moves through four phases:
  • Sign Up: Anyone can register for Texas Power Switch 4 (July 9 - September 25). Click Here to Register Red button
  • Auction: iChoosr will hold a reverse auction on August 21 among electricity providers. The provider who offers the cheapest rates gets to offer you a new electricity contract.
  • Personal Offer: After the auction, residents will receive a personal offer which will outline potential savings.
  • Accept/Decline: After residents receive their personal offer, they will have the option to accept or decline it. If choosing to accept, iChoosr will take care of the switching process.
The timeline for Texas Power Switch 4:
  • Registration: July 9 thru September 25
  • Bring your Bill: August 9 at City Hall
  • Auction: August 21 
  • Decision: September 4 thru 25
  • Switch window: September 4 thru December 31
The “Bring Your Bill” event is an opportunity for residents to come by City Hall to meet with iChoosr representatives who can help calculate potential savings.
