I am a customer of United Illuminating because I live in CT. My power is still provided by them but I found out that I can choose another supplier. It was so easy to switch that I changed my home and business to North American Power. UI's rate at the time was $.872 per kWh (per kilowatt hour) VS. North American Power's rate of $.699 per kWh. That was a no-brainer decision. I figure I should save a few hundred dollars in a year. Want to see if you can save some moolah? Simply go to http://www.napower.com/165204/ to get a quote. If your state participates, all you have to do is enter a few numbers from you recent utility bill. They take care of the change and in a month or so you will see them as the new supplier along with the lower energy rate. Once you switch, they will give you a cash bonus by encouraging your friends and family to switch.
