Thanks for the article from Jermaine Haynes
I had no idea that I could actually choose between energy providers when I moved to Texas a couple of months ago. We relocated from a rural town in South Georgia, where there was only one option for energy. A neighbor told me that I could log onto http://www.TexasElectricityProviders.com/ and check out the rates and service reviews. The rates were also less expensive than they were before the move. In Georgia, the deregulated the natural gas providers and in my town you could choose between two. I was happy to learn that you could shop electricity in Texas. I am a firm believer in healthy market competition ultimately being the best thing for consumers. I hate being a slave to one company, like I was to our cable provider in South Georgia. They had terrible customer service, but really had no reason to change its customer service because they were the only provider in a hundred mile radius! Now, I just have to figure out what I am going to do with the money that I am going to be saving!
