What do I need to know about door-to-door energy sales?

Has this ever happened to you?  You’re seated around the table with your family eating dinner and there’s a knock at the door.  When you answer it, there’s a salesman telling you he has a great deal on an energy plan.  He asks to see a copy of your most recent electric or natural gas bill so he can compare his rates with what you are currently getting.  What do you do?  Do you show him your bill? The answer to this is:  Never, EVER, give someone a copy of your energy bill if they knock on your door requesting to see it. The truth is, energy offers, whether in the mail, on the phone or in person by door-to-door solicitors can be really confusing.  It is very hard to compare two offers because there are so many variables in the terms and conditions that can greatly affect how good of an offer you really are getting. NOPEC takes a long-term approach to energy rates and doesn’t offer a low intro-rate for signing up only to raise the rates a few months later when the intro period ends.   We don’t use gimmicks to trick residents into signing up with us.  NOPEC customers know they are purchasing energy that is consistently priced as one of the lowest in the market.  To find out more about the different energy products NOPEC offers, check out this recent blog post about our new electric program.  We also make it easy to compare electric and natural gas rates to NOPEC's rates on our pricing pages. So the next time a door-to-door energy salesman comes knocking on your door, be prepared with this list of questions that you should ask before signing up with a new company.
