Embrace your energy provider

Like most of you, I run a business and am always looking for a way to sell more of my service or save money. I make sure to itemize everything for taxes and probably like you and eagerly await my tax returns. Especially during the years when I take a loss.

So, of course, when the energy regulations opened up so we could choose who we buy power and gas from… I started buying my electricity from a popular energy provider. We saved a lot of money… 30-35%. Now that was just for our residential needs.

A salesperson literally knocked on my door and showed me the difference between what that company could offer compared to what I was paying and we were so appreciative…I really thought I’d give the guy a hug because it was so much less expensive but there’s a warning to this. With this power provider, our power package was limited for a year or two. So after that time they raised the price of our energy even beyond what was the normal rate. If you don’t pay attention after switching power providers…you’ll be tempted and switched and while you think you’re getting a cheaper power and gas price…for a couple of years your price actually goes up further than they were originally paying. Most people don’t realize this about switching energy providers.

So, as a business owner, I wanted to know if I could lower my business’ energy and gas rates. My normal day-to-day business is Online Marketing. I market products and services online. So in my research, I found a company that not only offers cheap power and gas, but what they do is create competition by displaying about ten different quotes for your energy needs, including the amount of time their offer lasts and a consultant who contacts you in a timely manner to ensure that your rates are as affordable as possible. You can choose who provides you with the least expensive power and gas. So because of this competition, my energy rates for my business are as low as they can be.

I know many companies have changed their energy providers, but have you seen different energy rates from several different companies willing to compete for your business?
