A friend of mine told me about this company in the winter of last year. I was living in a 2 bedroom apartment in downtown Dallas and my electric bill for 1 person was running approximately 280-300 every month. I was amazed one person could use that much electricity HA. I called and was a bit skeptical at first since you pay an upfront fee to be a member. I took a chance and changed over. I was amazed. My first month my bill was so much lower that it more than made up for the upfront fee/membership. I highly recommend this service and have had many of my friends switch as well. There is no difference in the service itself just a significant reduction in cost.
