The energy providers in texas are not to be laughed at. When they say that everything is bigger in texas they are not lying. The energy marketplace in texas is huge. With so many people needing energy of course there are going to be tons of companies out there trying to get in on the action. It is not like little towns where there is only one energy provider and you pretty much had to take them or be out of luck. Here in texas there are at least twenty to choose from in all of the major cities. It really is remarkable and I did not really know how to react when I first came to texas, but now it is just a common occurance to have a company come knocking on your door in the middle of the day asking if you would like to switch energy providers. Back in my hometown this was unheard of. There was one time when a company tried to break it’s way into the energy scene but it was met with a horrendous market share. It was so bad infact that after the first year that company had to shut down because it just could not keep up with production costs. It is funny how much it takes to supply a city with energy. They end up having to need a lot of consumers just to break even, and nobody is in the game to break even. They all want to profit and if that means packing up and moving to a bitgger city than they will do that. So if you are in a big city than you are in luck because there will be people competing for your business and there will likely always be promos running in one of the many companies.
