I lived with my parents until I was 29 years old. They wanted me to be able to stay with them while I went to college. After graduating, I needed to find a job. I took on an entry level job while looking for the right one that would fit my college degree. I found the perfect place to work at in another state, and I was moving to Texas. Dad said he would help me set up with Reliant Energy in Texas and all the other businesses I needed to get set up with. I told him that I would do all of it on my own so that they would not have to worry about doing it. Not only that, but I wanted to learn as much as possible about living out in the world. I moved and did just that.
In my new state, you have a lot of choices about which companies to purchase your electricity through. Where I lived most of my life previously, we had the choice of getting our service through one company and that is it. But out in Texas, I had a plethora of businesses to choose from Choosing from so many options was very new to me.
The process of finding the right provider was easy enough. I just spent the afternoon calling each one and received lots of great info. It really helped me make the right choice about who to go with. I chose the company with the lowest monthly cost and there are a lot of good reviews about the company online. It was funny to need to read reviews about an electric company, but it was very helpful. On the day that I moved in, my utilities were turned on by the time I walked into the front door. I wish everything was as easy as that.
