When my ex and I split up, I knew that I was going to be the one to move. We had bought a house in the country, and I absolutely hated living so far away from my friends and family. I wanted to move back to town, and I was able to find a house pretty quickly. Everything was included in the rental price other than electricity, and my landlord gave me a pamphlet that had information on my choices. It also had a note that stated for more resources, click here, and then it listed a website address.
I went to the website, and it was exactly what I needed to make the decision on which company to choose. I had never done this before, as my ex had taken care of all the utilities. It didn’t intimidate me though because I had all of the information that I needed in front of me. I simply looked at each company to see which one offered the best prices. I actually had no idea that there were so many variables in selecting the right company. I thought that it was all about prices, but it involves so much more.
There are rate plans for each company, and no two have the exact same plans. Some are more advantageous to homeowners, and I was not interested in those at all. Others favored people like me, who were only renting their house or apartment on a monthly basis. I focused on those because I wasn’t sure where I would be in a year’s time, let alone 5 years, which is what some of the contracts were for. I wanted a monthly plan with the lowest rates, and this website was perfect in helping me select the company that gave me the best prices for that.
