You should call the Customer Relations for your electric provider and tell them you plan to move and want to know how to handle the agreement. Which brings up one point for renters... When you move it is YOUR responsibility to insure that the electric billing is reverted to the property management after you leave. The apartments will NOT assume the responsibility to do that for you.
Thank You Wilsson for good info. I don't know what I don't know LOL. I've owened for a while now and going back to renting, and in the new State at that is kinda strange in a way. So many things to consider though. I thought about transfering electric and I guess internet/phone services as well once we buy a house and out of our rental unit. The problem is I don't know where our future house will be located and if my power company provides services at that location? That's why we'll probably go w/ 6 months contract if numbers are acceptable. My apartment complex recommends that we go with Green Mountain, but don't mandate it. I just did search on the link above and it didnot even bring up Green Mountain for our zip 75024. BTW, I'm not looking for any specific endorsement or a promo of that power company but really would love to hear if someone used them before. DM me please so we'll stay within TOS.

Thank You all.

I see the suggestion of selecting an 18 month or 6 month contract to get my next renewal out of the summer peak price period as one option. The option I am leaning toward it to keep the month to month contract I now have going until rates drop in the fall, if they do drop, then signing up for a longer term contract. Is this a realistic option or have high natural gas prices put electricity costs in a much higher range (9 to 10 cents per kwh) than the under 8 cents per kwh I had the last 12 months?

If you go to powertochoose.org you can find better rates for 3, 6. or 7 months. This is worst time to start a new one. Pennywise and reliant give a pretty good break to new customers but watch out when its time to renew. I am paying 9.1 after 4.3 cents for three months.The suggestion for 18 months not bad either.
