I have known ever since moving to Texas that I had the choice for which company I wanted to supply my energy. I never really appreciated that until recently though. A friend gave me a link to look at online that had a good bit of information on it about the different companies. It all started out because she told me how much one of her electric bills was. I was so surprised because I was paying a lot more than she was. I asked her what company she uses, and that is when I found out that we have different ones supplying our energy.
One of the reasons why I never looked into the different companies is because I thought that all of them were pretty much the same. I knew that each one had their own name, and serviced different areas other than where I live, but I thought everything else was the same. When I realized that I could have been saving a lot more money every month though, I decided to take some action. That is why she sent me the link, so I could read up on the different companies.
She told me that even though her company was lower than mine on price, I might actually find another energy company that is even lower than hers. Since they are so competitive with each other, I decided to go ahead and check out the different ones on the website that she gave me. I learned a lot more than I anticipated, and I actually did end up signing on with a company other than the one my friend uses. The company I decided to go with is extremely green, and there are ways that I can save even more money because of the renewable credits that I can earn. I think she might even change to them now too!
