Question by Stan Jasek: Should electric and gas utility companies be allowed to operate as “monopolies?”?
In America we preach the principles of freedom of choice, free enterprise, the power of the individual, and democracy. Yet, when it comes to chosing an electric or gas utility, most Americans only have one choice, dealing with a “monopoly” utility provider. Is this acceptable in today’s world? Most energy providers do not allow the customer to pick whether they want “dirty” energy, “clean” energy, or any other options. We have to accept what they want to provide to us. Is this fair business practice for the 21st century?
Answer by craftyjem719 NO it’s horrible the monopoly they have going.

Question by Patches O’Houlihan: Since wind farms have killed more people than nuclear power plants, should wind farms be outlawed?
Can it possibly get any better? A sacred “green energy” boondoggle of the left has killed more people in the U.S. than nuclear power plants. Made my day when I heard that.
Answer by Libs, Zero Tolerance As soon as we outlaw planes, trains, and automobiles.
Question by J Rad: Which electric company should I choose?
I’m moving to Dallas soon and trying to figure out which electric company to choose for my studio apartment. Between these three companies, which would you recommend:
Gexa Energy, Direct Energy or Green Mountain?
I plan to get a fixed rate 12month contract for 100% renewable energy (yay wind!) and these companies all have a similar rate (12cents) for this. I’ve been reading horror stories about electric companies increasing rates and slapping on hidden fees.. What has your experience been with these companies?
