Texas has always had the distinction of being different from the other states. I am sure everyone has heard that Texas does it bigger than anyone else, and that really is no exaggeration in many ways. The only reason why I bring this up is because I had to laugh when I saw the number of energy providers that were available to me when I checked before moving into my new house. I thought it was going to be like every other place where I have lived where I am just told which company will provide me with electricity.
However, Texas has deregulated it, so that opens up the market for all the energy providers. At first, I still thought that the list would be somewhat short, but it just seemed to go on and on, and then on some more. Some of the companies that provide electricity to the area are Just Energy, Stream Energy, Green Mountain Energy, Champion Energy, StarTex Power, and so many more. See what I mean about the sheer number of options for energy here? Anyway, I had no idea which one I should choose from so many because I did not know the first thing about any of them.
I am not the type to just close my eyes and pick something. I want information, and I knew that the best place for that would be the Internet. I was able to find a website that had a lot of information about every single company that I was able to use. It did not take me long after looking at this to know that I wanted to go with Green Mountain Energy because of the excellent green plans that they have. It also reinforced the fact that we in Texas really do things much bigger than most others!
