I like to take a good look at all of my bills at least once or twice a year. Most of the time, I will see that I am getting the best deal possible for a service, like television programming or my mobile phone provider. There are times though where I will see that I can definitely make a better choice to save money. That was the case when I looked at Reliant Energy rates after talking with some friends about the amount they pay for their energy bill each month.
I was really surprised when they told me what their last electric bill was, so I asked them which company provides their electricity. Here in Texas, we are not regulated like a good bit of the country is. We actually have our choice of energy companies, and I decided to see how Reliant Energy rates compared to the company that I was using at the time. I was going to go to their website, but I actually found another website that was more helpful because it had information on all the companies that are able to provide electricity to the homes and businesses in my neighborhood.
I did want to compare the rates that Reliant Energy offers, but I figured it was worth my time to see if one of the other energy companies in the area provides even better rates. I was able to read about each company, which was actually quite interesting. I learned their history as well as things they all do for the neighborhoods that they serve. I had no idea that most of them give back to the communities so much, and that was refreshing to read. I was there to save money though, and it turned out that Reliant had the best way for me to do that.
