Historically speaking, the first quarter of the year tends to be a slower time of year for electric switching, however 2014 is off to a great start.
During the first 7 weeks of 2014:
Switches are up 23 percent vs. the same period last year
Percentage increase in switches versus a year ago was at least 10 percent or more
115,689 customers had switched, vs. only 94,224 during the same time last year
All this data comes from ERCOT
, and as always, a switch is defined as a customer changing from one electric company to another without moving homes.
