Just as deregulation brought competitive pricing and choice to the telephone service market, consumers across the country are beginning to experience the same with their electric service and lower electric bills will be the likely result. As deregulation brings competition to the electric service industry, a new marketing niche is emerging. Enter the Power Broker! Power Brokers can pull together pricing from a variety of Retail Electric Providers (REPs) and bring them to the table all at once, enabling the consumer to make an educated choice in a fraction of the time. These Power Brokers in turn, earn a commission on the services they sell.New Age Power Brokers is one such company that is quickly expanding to fill this marketing niche. They have a growing network of consultants that present electric service options to commercial electric customers demonstrating the savings available through deregulation. There is however, some question as to whether or not New Age Power Brokers is a true power broker because it appears they market electric supply only on behalf of Glacial Energy of Texas. A closer look at Glacial Energy shows that they may actually be the broker, purchasing energy supply from various wholesalers and selling it back to their customers at very low rates. In fact, Glacial Energy’s indexed rate service is considered by many to be one of the best values in the electric supply market. The combination of New Age Power Brokers growing sales network and Glacial Energy’s value priced supply, gives this team a competitive advantage in the rapidly expanding electric supply market.Choice in the electric supply market is relatively new and as a result, many customers have reservations about shopping for alternatives. Reliability is the greatest concern and for good reason. Energy is the lifeblood of production and even a short interruption in service can be quite costly. The resulting reluctance is perhaps the greatest hurdle for REPs as they enter the electric supply market, but are these concerns really justified? The answer would have to be…no. Regulatory commissions across the country have been quite careful to address these concerns even before they arise. Even when customers switch to a Retail Electric Provider, the distribution continues to be handled by the regional distribution company. Regulations also stipulate that in cases of power outage, distributors must address all customers equally, regardless of where they purchase their supply. Deregulation is supposed to create fair competition and state regulatory commissions have carefully removed the advantage from the distributing company without risking reliability to the electric customer.In conclusion, the time is absolutely right for big savings on electric service. Small to medium sized manufacturing customers can save thousands of dollars every month by using a competing electric supplier and without risking any downtime. Power Brokers provide the most efficient means for price comparison and have a vested interest in finding the most cost effective solution for you. If you are in a state where choice is an option, consider a Power Broker like and see how much you can lower your electric bill.
It was a warm spring day when Freddy Fallon got the news. At the time, he wasn’t familiar with the game of golf, but he accepted the invitation by a couple of old friends anyway, who had gone off to attend different golf academies after high school. He needed to get his mind off things anyway. The intensity of his mind and the school work, being a physics major at FIU, was getting to him, and his grades were showing it. Certainly, he’d be thinking of the game in terms of physical analysis; the angle of the club in relation to the ball, and how the speed of the club would impact the movement of the ball, as well as how the two variables interacted. Afterwards, he might never have the opportunity to explore these concepts again.There were other subjects he could study at his school, but Freddy was feeling the itch to play, as the players that he knew described it. This was the first time that he actually considered looking at golf academies as a serious educational choice. There were plenty of them out there to choose from.Gina Jones was a writing major and had been invited on this trip. She had played a few times, but when she started school to pursue her writing career, the sport sort of went on the back burner. Catching up with her old high school friends from Orlando would be fun, so she headed on down.It was just the perfect day when she arrived on the course. Gina met and talked with her friends and participated in the game. She did not expect to see Freddy, but here he was, reading a brochure about golf academies. So much for catching up; they ended up both reading it together.His family based in Orlando, the convenience was already seen by Freddy, since the school had 1 of its 4 campuses located there. He already had skills that could be put to use. In the listing of possible careers available, there were jobs in manufacturing, repairing, or testing of clubs, as well as other consulting jobs.For writing, there were writing and editing jobs in media, such as for newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet, which were mentioned in the brochure as well. Gina was quite excited about that. Others wondered if it would be a step down for them from their current education, but this was for anybody with a passion for the sport.One of many colleges that can be accessed online, this one had an associate degree program based on Complex Operations and Management. Either or both Golf Professional or General Golf Management can be emphasized during the 2-year program. Gina and Freddy found Information about admissions, financial planning, as well as various student resources, including academic resources, information the sport itself, and a list of other helpful links on the site.Both of them ended up enrolling in the school and agreed that attending one of the best schools was a good thing. Deciding what you want to do in life is one of the most important things, and studying in a field that has so many possibilities is great. This is great for anybody with a passion to pursue a career that involves the sport, even though they may not be good at playing it. For Freddy, this was certainly a plus, since he lost five golf balls to course ponds that day.
