Won’t say it’s a bad job, but it is a tough one. It’s a numbers game. You have to expend a lot of energy (time, money, gas, food, etc) and hear a lot of “NO” before you hear a yes. Just ask yourself a question, “would you change electric providers just to save $ 10 dollars or less on your electric bill?” If you answer no, there are easier ways to make a living. Just let the electric providers duke it out in their marketing campaigns.

After complaining to the Public Utility Commission, TXU changed out my meter. What does this mean?

Question by FutureMrsMarsalia: After complaining to the Public Utility Commission, TXU changed out my meter. What does this mean?
I live in a 749sf apartment and am very frugal with energy consumption yet continuously have electric bills in excess of $ 200 when all my neighbors in the same floor plans have bills around $ 70. I have complained to my electricity provider, TXU, on numerous occasions yet they refused to check my meter. About one week after making a complaint to the Texas Public Utility Commission, I noticed my power had been off during the day. After questioning the management office, they informed me TXU had replaced our meter. Does anyone know what this could mean?
I should note that when I phoned TXU today to inquire about the meter change, they informed me the meter change is not in their system.

could mean you were getting screwed. have you noticed a decrease in your bill since they changed it? if you have noticed a decrease, I would inquire again to the TXU, and explain to them again the situation. would also hold on to all electric bills. (as to provide prove of any drastic changes).
