Weird Electric Rate Comparison Sites To Stay Away From

As most of us, when we go into business we do it to make money. This site makes money by offering a great tool for verifying and comparing electric rates from multiple providers.

We always try and put companies to compare on our chart that are strong viable companies for the long term. We have likely met their CEO and have researched their history.

Our chart is made so that you can quickly compare no-nonsense rate plans like most all “fixed rate” plans.

What I have seen lately are some comparison sites that are owned by one electric supplier with ownership in multiple brand names.

These comparison sites are tricky because it looks like you are comparing prices from multiple providers but in reality the ownership is all by one company.

I am not saying that it is evil to make money in business by selling an online electric rate but it is important to be transparent to your customers and not present yourself as an unbiased comparison site when in reality all the providers on the comparison are actually one company.

I am shocked that there are sites out there like this as it seems like an extreme form of deceptive trade practices for an electric company to be involved in but I can only assume they know the risk and are willing to do it anyway.

Here at Electricitybid.com we are here to make money but we do business with the ultimate goal of living a life of integrity, treating our customers like we want to be treated, and simply doing a great job at what we know how to do.

We want to thank our customers for coming back and using us again and again, and please let us know if you have anything you would like to see on the comparison chart that is not there already or other suggestions.
