It’s been really great to see how some small changes can have such an impact on our bank account.
Because we live in Rhode Island, and thanks to deregulation, we can now select the energy company we prefer. A freedom we haven’t had until recently!
Residents who choose to switch to Direct Energy can save up to 17% over National Grid Rhode Island’s electricity rate.
(If you don’t reside in the state of Rhode Island, other territories may have savings too, just visit DirectEnergy.com for more.)
This is great news because I’m a part-time Work-At-Home-Mom, full-time Stay-At-Home-Mom, and that means lights are always on, washing machines are going, laptops are charging and the heat is cranked up like it’s Miami.
My kids are young, but I am trying to teach them to turn out the lights when they leave the room or help me turn off the TV when we are done watching. It’s all about being mindful.
A popular company that helps trim energy costs is Direct Energy. They are one of the largest energy suppliers in North America, with nearly 5 million customers!
How it works
If you’re curious about your family’s home energy usage, Direct Energy offers online tools where you can view and analyze usage, helping to use less.
One of the coolest features is Direct Energy’s usage insights tool. With this insights tool, you’re able to view and analyze your energy usage, helping you make informed decisions that can help you use less.
They also offer a Nest Learning Thermostat for residential customers at no additional cost.
Nest Thermostat learns your schedule and programs itself with features like auto-schedule, auto-away, energy history and more. If customers use Nest, they could potentially save a further 10% to 12% on their heating bills and about 15% on their cooling bills.

How are you saving money on your household’s energy costs?
Offer valid for new residential customers in the National Grid Rhode Island service area until March 6, 2017.**Savings refers to the current difference (of up to 17%) between Direct Energy’s 8-month fixed price offer of 6.79¢/kWh and National Grid Rhode Island’s current Fixed Rate for Basic Service of 8.179¢/kWh, and does not include any other component of your electricity bill such as delivery or taxes. National Grid Rhode Island’s fixed rate is effective until March 31, 2017 and may change at that time. There may be no savings following that date. Direct Energy’s rate includes energy charges only and excludes delivery/transmission charges, taxes, and all other utility-related charges.
