Finding a Good Electricity Provider

Finding a Good Electricity Provider

Feb 9, 2012

I live in Texas and a few years ago we deregulated electricity, which opened the door to competition.  In the old days I had to use TXU if I lived in Dallas and Reliant if I lived in Houston. There was no choice in who our electricity provider was, we simply had to grin and bear the bad service and lack of choice. The monopolies were able to gouge us any way they felt like and we couldn’t do anything about it. Now, there are literally dozens of electricity providers in the state. You can pick from any number of of plans, fixed rate, long term plans or month to month electricity plans. The world is your oyster and choice is king.  I have spent a little time and effort and found a few that offer great rates. Taking the time to do your research can result in substantial savings. There are several great sites and companies that  offer great packages, so don’t stay with your original provider just because it is convenient and easy. Save some money and look around.
