When I decided to go with TXU Energy as my electricity provider, it was mainly because of how they feel about the environment. I am not a tree hugger by any means, but I do want to do my part as best as I can in making sure we leave the planet in as good of condition as possible for future generations. The TXU electric company makes this very easy to do since they have done the hard part in putting together the plans that help the environment, and all I had to do was sign up for one of them.
They have four different green plans, and I chose the TXU Energy Solar Advantage. I do not have a lot of free time, so I did not want to choose a plan at this time that would require anything more than me just switching to that plan. I hope later that I will be able to devote more time to things that I am becoming passionate about, but right now, just switching to this plan is my contribution to living a more green lifestyle. There were other reasons why this plan was so attractive too other than just being a clean energy plan.
I am locked in for 36 months which means the price cannot be raised on me. I love knowing what my rate will be for such a long time, as past plans I have had were all 12 month deals. I also liked that I was able to basically test drive this plan. I had two months from when I signed up to switch to another plan without any problems if there was anything that I did not like about it. That did not happen though because it is a great plan that helps the environment a lot and saves me money too.
