Ethical axioms are found and tested not very differently from the axioms of science. Truth is what stands the test of experience.
I am moving to Texas, and I have mixed feelings about it. I kind of like the idea of a new environment, but at the same time, I am from a very different area of the country, and so I really feel out of my element here. I have not spent much time here, mostly house shopping and I want to find some additional resources that will help me to pick my utility providers, and in particular, I need to find some information to lead me to a good choice when it comes to the company that I am going to get my electricity from at my new house.
Before I started looking for houses in Texas, I really had no idea that there would be multiple power companies to choose from. Kind of seems like a strange thing, or at the least, it is not somethign that I am used to. But I guess if you are a capitalist then there are good reasons to want to have your energy unregulated. The only issue I have is that maybe competition could be dangerous in a field such as energy, where if the service is unreliable, then there is going to be a huge impact on the every sector of the economy. I am sure that is not an issue here though, and there are probably lot of energy resources in the state of Texas, partly due to the fact that it is such a large state. And of course, there is a lot of drilling for oil off of the cost of the state. I don’t know if any of that goes into generating electricity, but that would be interesting to look into, to see how Texas gets the majority of its energy. But mostly, I just need to make a decision.
Moving to Texas came with a very real surprise. Texas electricity rates are far better than they are in most of the country, a fact that would have had me moving down south had I been informed sooner! I’ve been doing everything that I can possibly do to save money as of late and moving to Texas is an attempt to do that. I found a new job that would pay far better than what I previously held while at the same time the cost of living here s cheaper than where I had grown up. Needless to say, things have been looking up for me.
Still, I was pleasantly surprised when I came across several different electric companies to choose from! Back in Louisville we only had a single company to supply us with all of our electrical needs. Unfortunately that meant you were beholden to whatever they were charge. Imagine being tight on monehy and suddenly having to start paying more for your electricity but not being able to afford it! You don’t have very many, if any, options in a situation like this in a city with only one provider for utilities. It’s a bummer that makes things incredibly difficult.
Texas is an entirely different ball game. When I began looking for a utility company I was completely expecting to just have a single provider that would service me. And yet I was shocked to discover that there were more than one! I didn’t even look over the entire list when I saw the cheapest that I could get was right here in the town with me. It goes to show what healthy competition can offer a state and now if I find myself once more tight on money I’ll be able to switch services if one of them is cheaper.
I know that prices are going down for energy, which is cool, because I like saving money. Every penny counts, but lots of people waste plenty of good money, just because they aren’t able to see how it adds up. I am just going to start looking into www.texasenergycompanies.net to see the prices of various energy companies that are in the area for their prices.
I have a family to feed and I want to be able to put as much food on the table as possible. Because, I am not really sure what sort of money I will be able to save, but as I said, it all helps. (more…)
I am not quite retired, but I am not going into the office at 8 AM any longer. In fact I rarely see the city unless I have to go see a client these days. I do a lot of my business out on the golf course. At any rate I have decided that it makes sense for Emma and I to move back towards our ancestral homes. We were thinking about the price of land and the lower Tara energy rates, kind of thinking about building some sort of experimental house. I do not know if you ever seen one of these, but I know this guy who builds these ultra efficient houses that some people call Earth Ships. (more…)
I have moved out into country sort of, my wife and I bought a place with around 7 or 8 acres of land, although to be exact there are around 6.5 to 7.5 acres of land and a little half acre pond. We got a great deal on the place and it came along with a really huge metal storage building. Apparently the previous owner never finished it, but it is about 20 feet wide and forty feet long. There is a direct tv satellite dish on the roof and at one end the guy had a big projection TV screen set up on the wall. (more…)
Not all that long ago, a drunk driver crashed into my house with their vehicle. It was pretty ridiculous, and they actually managed to run off from the scene. I am not sure how they were able to walk, after the crash, but they got away. The police still haven’t found the person who was responsible, because the car was apparently stolen. My home insurance went up, as a result of the incident. So now, I am looking for home insurance deals in my area, because I am seriously considering switching to a different provider, just to be able to get a lower price.
I am not sure how much I will be able to save, and if I can’t save that much, then it might not be worth it to do this. I would like to find a company that is not going to raise my price for home insurance, just because I filed one claim. It is the first time I have ever filed a claim with my home insurance company.
