1. Ask people who live around you
The people who live in your neighborhood will have the same options when it comes to utility companies that you do. Therefore, you should talk to them and find out which companies they are using. If they use a company such as Palmco, ask them why. Find out about the customer service provided by their utility companies. If they have an issue with their service, does the company quickly send a repair technician to their home to fix the problem? How much does the company charge? Would they recommend that you use this company?
2. Look on the Internet
If you still want to get more references after you talk to the people who live around you, there are a few other places you can get some information. One of the best resources for just about anything is the Internet. There are a wide range of websites you can look at to compile information about your utility companies that will help you decide which ones to choose. Some of the best sites offer current and former customers the ability to write and post reviews regarding their experience with a particular utility company. The type of brutal honesty in these reviews can be very refreshing.
3. Company websites
You can also visit the websites of the utility companies themselves. You can find out information about their various policies, as well as some of the different plans they offer to customers. If you want information about their rates, you will probably need to call the company and speak to a representative. Many utility companies shy away from posting their rates online.
