Cutting Those Bills - Electric Bill

We believe that electricity exists, because the electric company keeps sending us bills for it, but we cannot figure out how it travels inside wires. -Dave Barry

With the summer months coming around the corner (and here in Houston, it starts just after Jan. 2nd), we decided that the next bill we should look to cut is the electric bill. So in continuing with our goal of cutting the bill by 20%, my first response was to see what were our options. I recently learned that in the great state of Texas, the consumer has the choice to determine their electric energy supplier. If you live in Texas, check this site out.

After reviewing our choices, we decided to sign-up with a company offering 14% less then our current company for electric energy, about $0.142/kWh. We are hoping the switch, and a conscience decision to reduce our energy use, we will be able to reduce the monthly bill by 20%.
