True. It's a necessity to understand any contract you sign and to understand your liability. With the exception of the precarious nature of the grid, Griddy was pretty transparent about what you were getting at signup. I understood that price spikes up to $9 something per kwh were possible. The August 2019 spikes were what I was considering when I signed up. When the spikes hit during the hottest times of the day, I set my AC at 88F and left until prices came down. Even so, my bill was about $155, which was about 25% more than I would have paid on a fixed rate plan. But I beat the fixed rate solidly every month before and after August 2019 until this month.
