Rhythm vs. Direct Energy

See how we compare to Direct Energy and why more Texans are making the switch to Rhythm.

Why choose Rhythm over Direct Energy? No hidden fees ever.

It is one of the commitments we make to you, because we hate those unexpected fees as much as you do. Direct Energy, on the other hand, directly hits you with a list of fees as big as Texas. These fees are often hard to spot, but quick to add up.
