Do you live in the country deregulated? Is that operates several power companies competing for your business? You can choose to have another company to provide electricity in your home if you live in the country.
Compare rates to a different electricity provider. There are online sites where you can check the comparison of different levels and plan for the electricity available in your area. Try Whitefence.com or ElectricChoice.com.
What's the best deal you can get? How often do you use electricity? That is, what your usage habits? Go to different pricing options and choose the most feasible plan congruent with the needs of your usage and habits.
Back, negotiate with your current provider. Before finally deciding to change your electricity provider, contact the company you are currently doing business with. Request a price match and if they can provide the same price or better / services to you.
If they say yes, they remain a customer, you get a better deal and you do not have to go through the hassles of switching power companies. If they say no, you're one step closer to lower pay monthly bills from different suppliers.
