Texas ROSE report: Prepaid service is high risk with little protection for consumers

A new report from Texas ROSE documents the terms and conditions of buying prepaid electricity and the fees charged by prepaid REPs in deregulated areas of Texas.  You may download a PDF file of the full prepaid electricity analysis and report here on this website. The report documents that prepaid service is high risk and provides little or no protection to the low-income consumers targeted for buying the service. The report concludes that prepaid service is substandard and asks the PUC to take a number of steps to reform prepaid service.
