How do you buy gas for your home? ...And power for your company?

When the plug "empties" you buy a "full" one. Simple and easy!

But there is an alternative. In my house, I have two plugs (photo). When one "empties", the other takes care of our home consumption, for 3 months.

I check the market every two weeks or so and when an attractive price is there I close the deal.

And so a more economical annual cost is there!

With electric power contracting, in the free market it is exactly the same concept. Try it. The cost differences will surprise you for sure!
