An e-mail I got from 'Resident Power' yesterday, marked urgent. They are right! I checked. I am relieved I am no longer with PSNH. Click to ENLARGE.

I checked. Saw this in the 'Concord Monitor', dated Dec. 16, 2012. Not sure whether ALL others are as low as they claim. Click to access the article.

I went and checked my PSNH bill a few minutes ago. Though I get 'power' from 'Resident Power' (PNE), PSNH still delivers it and I pay the entire bill, as before, electronically, to PSNH. My PNE rate is still the same. I then did some arithmetic.

I am happy. I have been getting ‘power’ from ‘Resident Power‘ since June 2012. So roughly 1/2 year. No problems, no issues — other than the routine outages with PSNH.

I still continue to see folks coming to this blog after doing a Web search for: “Resident Power Scam“. I tried to address this in my prior posts. I have done a fair amount of research on ‘Resident Power’. IF it is a scam, it alludes me — and I tend to be fairly good at being skeptical and paranoid. In my case, I can’t see what the scam can be. I see the rate, each month, that I am getting charged. It is the 12-month contract price I signed up to in May. I pay directly to PSNH. Resident Power does not bill me or get any money from me. They also have no access, whatsoever, to my bank account — as does PSNH, because they direct bill me. So, I am at a loss. If it is a scam, it must be ultra sophisticated that I can’t see it. Not sure what they can be scamming in my case. It is NOT like they can deliver bad electricity or electricity with viruses or Trojan horses in them so that they can spy on the household.

So, my only concern now is what happens in June 2013. My 12 months with Resident Power expires. I assume I have to sign-up again. I am sure they will increase the rate. Maybe that is when the scam kicks in. Maybe they will quote me a price higher than PSNH. I have heard that there are other options. So, I am going to keep an eye. Investigate. IF you have any details as to this SCAM, please let me know. We should publicize it. Thanks. Happy Holidays.

    Anura, I am the Managing Director of Resident Power and I have been following your blog for some time. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the message you are helping to send out. I.e. Resident Power is real and we can and do save customers money. Your wife posted very positively on our Facebook page today and I was inspired to read your latest updates. I saw that you were wondering what happens to your rate in June, when your current contract expires and I can assure you, you will not be placed at a higher rate than PSNH. While June is still a few months away and i cant tell you exactly where rates will be at that time, you will likely be under 8 cents and there is potential you may even get a lower rate than what you have right now. We ALWAYS promise our customers that they will never receive a renewal rate or an original rate that is above the PSNH rate at that time, guaranteed. This the major difference between Resident Power and other options currently available. You will notice that they offer introductory rates that expire after 3, 6 or 9 months, this is done in the hope that the customer will stop paying attention and higher rates may be charged.

    As for the renewal process it is easy. When your contract enters its final month, Resident Power sends you a renewal offer. Upon receipt of your renewal offer, you have 5 business days to opt out for ANY reason. If you choose to not opt out, and the 5 days have passed, your new rate will be uploaded to PSNH and you will see the change on your bill in one or two billing cycles.

    Anyway, I hope this helps and thank you once again for helping us to get our message out there.

    Sincerely,

    Bart Fromuth

      Delighted to hear from you. Thank YOU for the updates. Very helpful.
      I, given that I pay the bills, am very happy so far with Resident Power. Since we put up a ‘lot’ of lights, inside and out, during Christmas and have two trees lit up most of the day, our December electric bill is usually quite high. This year with ‘Resident Power’ it was manageable! Definitely less than we have ever paid.
      I have been contacted my two other companies asking me to post their offers on this blog. One of them was the one that ‘refunds’ new customers $50. I, as is my wont, did some Googling. I was not comfortable with what I saw. So, I politely declined. Told both those companies that I am happy with ‘Resident Power’ and don’t really feel a need to promote others as well.
      Yes, my wife is much better than I am at getting the message out — especially since I am incapable of using FaceBook. Amazes me that so many people we know will NOT switch from PSNH or Wolfeboro Power. The later has a very misleading comparison on their Website based on, I think, 2009 rates.
      Well, THANK YOU for the cheaper power. We are grateful.
      All the best. Cheers,
      Anura
      P.S., I did vote for ‘Resident Power’ in the Best of NH. Did it just for ‘you’, though going through the 44+ questions was a pain. But, I felt I owed it to ‘you’. Yes, I meant to post it — and forgot. Not sure if the deadline for voting has passed.
