I received my electric bill a few months ago and was surprised by the amount I was asked to pay. I was not on a fixed plan so I did know that my prices could fluctuate, but I had no idea that it would jump as high as it did. I was contemplating what to do because I knew that I was not going to be able to pay that amount every month. That is when a friend from work told me to go to energyprovidertexas.com and look at the different companies and service plans there.

I wasn’t even sure what it was at first, but it did not take me long at all to appreciate what I saw once I went there. It is a site that does all of the homework for people who want to know about the energy companies serving deregulated areas in Texas. I saw the company that I was with at the time, but I saw all of the others that were available to me as well. I looked at the different plans that my former company had in case there was another rate plan that would be a lot better for me. Unfortunately, there weren’t any, not even the fixed rate plans.

On the bright side, there were several companies where I was able to get a lower price. The really neat thing about this site is that I was able to learn a good bit about the different energy companies too. I was able to see what kind of contributions and interaction each has with the community, and also what green initiatives some of them are undertaking. I was really fascinated by everything I read, and I was able to make a smart choice that not only saves me money but helps the environment too.
