Even though we are allowed to choose which company provides our energy, I never really took an interest in it until I started to budget my money better. One of the first things I learned about budgeting is to cut out all the waste on my bills. This meant no late payments, paying more than the minimum, and making sure that I was not overpaying on any of my recurring bills. I was able to slash some channels from our television package, I changed the plan on our cell phones, and I researched ambit energy in killeen to see if we were indeed getting the lowest rates possible.
Since I had already made changes with our phones and television, I was pretty sure I was going to end up changing my energy provider too since there are so many available in our area. I looked at all of the different companies, and I was pleased to see that we had already made a smart choice by staying with Ambit Energy when the deregulation happened. While I was happy with our choice, I decided to look at the different plans because it looked like I would still be able to slash our energy bill a bit each month too.
I looked at the different plans, rates and terms, and I had to decide if I wanted to have a set rate each month or if I wanted to have a variable that could go up, but it could also go down too. Since I am not really much of a risk taker, I decided to just stick with what I had because we were paying one of the lowest fixed rate prices anyway. It actually made me feel good to know that all along we were paying the lowest possible price for at least one of our monthly bills.
