We Changed Our Energy Provider

When my husband told me to check into some different energy providers, I wasn’t sure what kind of help I would be. While most people can understand the basics of electricity and energy, I felt like I needed to go back to school to have a clue about it. I know solar energy is a hot topic, and things are measured in kilowatts, but I can’t even explain either of those things. He told me that I didn’t need to be a scientist though just to get reliant rates in san angel, texas as well as a few other company rates.

We had just received another increase in our energy bill, and we were both anxious to get it lowered again. Our neighbors have Reliant Energy, and they were paying a bit less than we were every month. (more…)

We Got Maryland Direct TV on Four TVs

When we were remodeling our house, it was going to include running new wires and cables for the phones, TV and Internet. I contacted a maryland direct tv company to install satellite TV in our home for four televisions. There was the main one in the living room, one in our master bedroom and one each in the rooms of our two children. I was kind of excited to be getting satellite TV. They carried a channel that I have been wanting for a long time that was extra through our cable company. I would have had it with the old TV service, but just could not justify the jump in cost for one channel.

Now I am recording and watching all of the shows I have seen advertised but could not watch before. It is nice that the satellite company has a channel package that makes more sense to me. (more…)

I Was Able to Choose My Power Company

When I first moved down south, I was surprised that I had my choice between power companies in round rock, tx. I never had this power to choose in any of the former cities I had lived in, and I have to admit that I liked having the decision in my own hands for a change. I didn’t take this lightly and just choose the first company that I found. Instead, I went online and looked at the different companies that offer this service, and then I researched each one individually.

My biggest issue was whether I wanted to have a fixed rate or a variable rate. Both had their pluses and minuses, so I had to consider each one. (more…)
