Seasons Changing, Energy Needs Changing

fall

Today marks the first day of October and you have likely made some changes in your home climate control (or soon will be.)  If you’re in a warm part of the country like Texas, your electricity needs may be decreasing significantly as the weather cools-off and you can turn-down your air conditioning.  If you’re in a cooler part of the country like Illinois, your electricity needs may be increasing as you need to heat your home.  For many of Energy Simply’s customers, electricity usage varies by more than 2x between the summer months and the winter months.

If you’re not already signed-up as a customer of Energy Simply, having us keep you in the best electricity plan for YOUR home, now is a great time to consider signing-up.  Learn more about how Energy Simply saves you significant money by keeping you in the best electricity plan for your home at: https://www.energysimp.ly/how-it-works.

FAQ: Can I change power companies?

We get this question more often from Illinois customers, rather than Texas. Both Illinois and Texas are deregulated energy states. That means that people can choose which “retailer” they purchase their energy from. The difference between Illinois and Texas is that Illinois has a “default” retailer which is the well-known utility, Comed. All Texans have to choose an electric retailer in order to obtain their power.

So, the simple answer is: YES.  change-cycle

However, once you’ve signed up with Energy Simply, you won’t ever have to worry about changing power companies again. It can be a hassle to navigate the hundreds of companies and thousands of plans to figure out which one is right for you. That is why Energy Simply monitors the markets and takes care of the switching – saving our customers hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

Declare Your Independence from Your Electricity Company

Fourth of July FlagAs the United States celebrates the 240th anniversary of its Declaration of Independence, it’s a great time to declare your own independence from your electricity company.

It’s all the same electricity. Whether you’re getting your home electricity from the incumbent energy provider that can trace its roots back to Thomas Edison, some new start-up with a fancy name, or a 100% renewable, green, non-GMO, organic electricity provider; the electricity coming out of the outlets in your home is the same. (Though members of our founding team all have children under five and would hope that you consider choosing 100% renewable.)

Dozens of different home electricity plans are available. If you haven’t shopped for your home electricity recently, you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised by how much you could save.

To save yourself the hassle of shopping for the best plan for you (and shopping again when your contract term ends), Energy Simply is your ally against the electricity companies. For a small monthly fee, Energy Simply constantly shops the home electricity market and keeps you in the cheapest plan (or cheapest 100% renewable plan.) Learn more today: https://www.EnergySimp.ly/

Obligatory Earth Day Post

Too cynical? Probably, but if you’re like me you’re probably a little tired of every company using Earth Day as a way to sell its wares. Well, today we aren’t buying into the hype. We make good decisions every day to promote Earth’s health and environmentalism, and our company is working – one household at a time – to try and get more people using renewably produced electricity.

Here’s an article from Inhabitat writer Jill Fehrenbacher about the top 5 worst Earth Day Gimmicks. It’s a fun read, and a good reminder that our actions every day are what count. It’s a good reason to think about what habitual changes you can make to protect the health of the planet. Might we suggest choosing 100% renewable electric? There’s a good chance it won’t even cost more than traditional. Happy Earth Day!

7 Simple Things You Should Know About Your Electricity

logo-trn-500w-BLK

The Times Record News of Wichita Falls has sponsored content up featuring some very useful tips on how to save on your electricity. The first couple are perhaps the most important:

1. You pay too much. A lot too much.
If you live in Wichita Falls, you’re likely paying anywhere from 8 cents to 10 cents or more per kilowatt hour (kWh). The best rates right now are between 5 and 7 cents per kWh. Average savings: $50 or more per month. That’s a lot of Pat’s burgers, Wichita Falls!

2. Your power company bets you’re lazy.
If you are inattentive – and who enjoys reading utility statements? – you are an easy mark. Use more energy than your plan allows? Pay more. Use less energy than your plan specifies in the fine print? Pay more. On a variable plan and summer arrives early? Pay more. Or, perhaps you jumped on one of the many cut-rate offers out there and have not examined your bill closely since you switched. Typically, the low-ball introductory rate expires. Yup. Pay more.
