An Energy Company That Promotes Being Green

I have known ever since moving to Texas that I had the choice for which company I wanted to supply my energy. I never really appreciated that until recently though. A friend gave me a link to look at online that had a good bit of information on it about the different companies. It all started out because she told me how much one of her electric bills was. I was so surprised because I was paying a lot more than she was. I asked her what company she uses, and that is when I found out that we have different ones supplying our energy.

One of the reasons why I never looked into the different companies is because I thought that all of them were pretty much the same. I knew that each one had their own name, and serviced different areas other than where I live, but I thought everything else was the same.

Getting the Best Price for Metals

price of copper per poundMy brother is a handyman, and I often help him with some of his bigger projects. We were given the task of cleaning out a house along with some outbuildings on a farm. The owners wanted nothing except empty buildings so they could sell the land and buildings quickly. We were able to get a cheap dumpster, thinking we would put everything in there. However, we hit the jackpot when we came across one of the buildings. I knew that the price of copper per pound was good, but I wasn’t sure exactly what it was.

We decided that we would get all of the copper and other metals together first, then I would go online and find out which scrap metal dealers had the best prices. I thought that I was going to have to go to each one’s website, and I knew that would be time consuming since there are several in our area. If it was just copper, it would have been fine, but there were other types of metal in the building including aluminum, lead and iron. We wanted to make sure that we got the best prices for all the different metals we had found. Continue reading “Getting the Best Price for Metals”
