Look into whether your state has a deregulated electricity (or other utility) market. In Connecticut, we can choose our electric supplier. The utility company continues to bill and service the lines, but as a customer you have the right to choose what company your electricity comes from.

You can save up to 30% on the generation charge simply by choosing. And in some cases, have a beneficial impact on the environment as well! The savings will depend on your usage, but I save about $26 a month! You can learn more by going to:
