The Power of Texas’ Offer of Choice
With an option to choose an energy provider, moving to Texas was clearly one of the best decisions that I have made in recent years. I had a choice between three states that my employer offered me, as each state held a division where major projects were currently underway. After doing research on each state I stumbled onto www.energyproviderstexas.com which allows a resident to compare current prices between each of the available energy companies throughout Texas. It might be a small thing to you but as someone who tries to live as cheaply as possible, this coupled with the low rent found in Texas were clearly going to be the way to go.
Not that it matters too much since the vast majority of my monthly bills are being covered by my employer who wants to make sure that I am a happy camper. It’s nice working for a company like this even if I am technically a contractor most of the time, except for projects like this, where they actually hire me for a few months at a time so I can gain benefits. They’re the kind of employer that knows how to keep people happy and go out of their way to keep those employees on board.
I feel like Texas is similar in a way. They offer their residents the capability to choose their utilities, something that I hadn’t known was possible as I had always thought that utilities didn’t have anything in the way of ‘competition’. Of course, I have always lived in states where there was only one or two different energy companies, water companies and so on. I never thought about it being a business and considered them more of a state or federally run entity whose sole purpose was to provide a utility for residents.
