Comparison Shopping in PA is Hopefully Going To Get Better

What are you really paying for your electricity per kWh?

The supplier may list a price per kWh, but does it include all the additional, often hidden, fees?

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) has initiated a “rulemaking” process that would force suppliers to list the total price per kWh including any additional fees. The PUC is trying to combat the misrepresentation seen in the electricity-shopping market. Just last month the site was claiming PECO customers could save as much as 44% annually, but failed to mention this did not include the enrollment fee and that the rate was only guaranteed for three months. The website has since been changed to say, “potential savings”, but this is just one example of how hard it is for consumers to know whether the price they are given is the full amount they will actually pay.

With all this uncertainty, comparison shopping becomes harder and harder to do on your own. Businesses especially often do not have the proper time and resources to devote to it. But there is an answer. Finding a reputable broker to contract your electricity with will allow you to have an expert compare prices for you and give you the piece of mind that for the duration of your contract, prices will not increase. This allows commercial customers to get back to what really matters, their business!

Better Cost Control has been in business since 2002 and have helped numerous businesses control their costs. We compare rates for you and don’t work with any one supplier, so we can get your business the best price possible and help control your budget.

Opportunities for Sales in Electricity and Natural Gas

In tough economic times, there are always slick salespeople who take advantage of the economy to sell dreams. Today, the dream being sold by Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) companies is the recurring commissions of residential electricity sales.  Sell everyone you know to sell everyone they know and you will make a fortune and retire.  The pitch and the web site are slick.  The opportunity makes sense.  It seems like a no-brainer.  But believe me: It is a dream.  It really doesn’t turn out that way.
