I have been contacted by several people about saving on my electric bill for a about a month now. These people are starting businesses through North American Power and referring people gets them money. I guess it works if people are so adamant about you signing up. I just wanted to see if any other bees have heard about this. It’s only in a few states right now (IL, PA, NJ, NY, CT). I’m getting sort of annoyed being bombarded by people who I haven’t spoke to in years to help them out with getting money by saving on my electric bill.
Do any of you have a buisness with them or have saved money through this company?
ETA: It keeps linking to me a friend’s business that they started just incase anyone sees “Conroy Enterprise” at the top.

No I wouldn’t just because of how annoying they are. I’d be skeptical.

Does it have something to do with the competition between private power companies?

@redheadem: Yeah, I’m totally not doing it for that reason anyways. To be contacted by people who are pretending to be interesting in my life then go right into that is rude. Plus my electric bill for my apartment is fairly small amount anyways. If someone could reduce it to zero – that’d be great, but I doubt there’s much they could do with my bill anyways.
@tksjewelry: I really have no idea. I never gave it a look until today.

We actually use it! We got it through a friend who sells (?) it, and we’re very happy. It did significantly lower our bill, and I am happy with their service. The best part is we still pay the same comany as we did before, so nothing changed in the billing department except our bill went down.
I know we’ve saved money, but it’s really hard to say how much because right after we switched, Darling Husband left for basic training and hasn’t lived here since. So, we’re paying slightly less than before, but we only have 1 person living here. So, 1x less showers, less food to cool, etc. When he was home for two weeks over Christmas, our bill went up about $15, so I would guesstimate we are saving between $20-40 a month.
We live in a small 1 bedroom apt, but have very old appliances and old water heater, so our bill is definitely still higher than if we lived in a newer place. We also have a big TV that takes a lot of electric, so I think our savings all around would be more either way if we could upgrade.

Whever something like this comes up, do some due diligence and search the company online.
Companies like this operate by buying electricity in bulk then re-selling. Works great if the price of electricity stays the same or goes up. Not so great if the price of electricity goes down. You won’t benefit as you will have signed a contract to buy at a fixed price.
People here in BC have had a horrendous similar experience with reselling of Natural gas.

@subbywife11: Yeah, I know about three people contacting me about it. I’m glad it’s working out for you though.
@julies1949: I would always. I’m such a nervous nilly about being scammed somehow.
