When I got the flier in the mail from my local power company telling me that I no longer had to use them for the power to my house, I knew that I had to make a choice as to whether or not so that I would be able to look at the different options I had for my power company. My husband and I decided that we would just go with the company that had the least amount in charges per watt and that I would be okay with the fact that there was no difference for any of our service at all. We were just able to pick a new provider, purely based on cost and I was alright with that I was thinking that it would be a good idea if we were able to look at the contracts to see if there was a minimum amount of time that we had to sign with them but that was not the case.
I was so happy that we did not have to sign a contract to get service from the cheapest provider. My husband and I both have very well paying jobs in Dallas but we were not used to the fact that we only had one option for power. We came from other parts of the country and we were not used to only having one option for things like cable and power. Back in California we had many options for who we wanted to provide us with our power and our cable. I was never more grateful then when we were able to choose more than one of our utilities. I felt like everything was bigger in this great state, and it was true, even our options for power and cable.
