I can remember when I first moved to Texas, people were talking about a law that was supposed to be passed soon. It was concerning the Texas deregulation of energy companies, and everyone was pretty excited about it. I didn’t really understand the uproar, because I have never had the freedom to choose before. I had never had any problems either, so I didn’t get why it was such a big deal. Well, once deregulation happened, the floodgates were opened for the competition for energy companies.Once that happened, I could finally understand why it was such a big deal.
I was seeing offers that were pretty incredible, and they are still really nice to this day even though all of that happened years ago. The energy companies were so hungry to get as many customers as possible that some were offering incredible rate plans. While the cost is still my top priority, it is not the only consideration I have. I also want to make sure that the company I choose is one that gives back as well. I don’t mean just to the community either, though that is a major part of it as well.
What I really mean though is a company that practices green behaviors. I want a company that is going to give back to the earth as much as it possibly can. A company that invests in green technology is the company I want to give my business to. I see the damage we are doing to our planet, and I want to help in any way that I can. Choosing a power company that goes above and beyond in this regard will always be the company that I choose to provide the power to my house. It feels great having this kind of choosing power!
