This time of year, a lot of people are concerned about containing the cost of heating their homes. (Especially, during a week like this one!)
In a recent open thread, some were discussing options for propane tank owners. And this week, a reader complained to me that her National Grid rates “absolutely skyrocketed”.
(She didn’t state that her home has electric heat. Perhaps it doesn’t, but I know plenty in town do.) She was wondering what others in town have experienced and about options.
Over a year ago, an open thread commenter asked about other residents’ experiences with alternative electricity suppliers without much response.
So, today, I’m dedicating a post to the topic. I encourage you to share with each other your experiences and any helpful tips in this area.
Have you tried local alternative electricity suppliers? Was it a boon or boondoggle?
Have you made investments in lowering your heating or electricity costs? (Maybe installing a wood stove or solar panel?) Was it worth the investment?
Post any helpful comments (or questions) you have below.
