George Owens' Top Ten Reasons for Switching Utilities
by George R. Owens, PE, CEM

10.   Listening to music while on hold when the power is out
09.   Numerous outages cause the tenant's ice cream to melt
08.   Interrupting my secretary's game of solitaire with voltage dips
07.   "I'd like to introduce you to your new Rep of the Month"
06.   How many utility people does it take to meet with a customer? six
05.   And they still have to go check with someone else for a decision
04.   "You want that new service when?"
03.   Not understanding the customer's business needs
        (The business for a retailer is selling socks, not saving energy)
02.   Thinking that "competitive utility" is not an oxymoron

And the Number One Reason for Switching Utilities...

01.   It's a penny cheaper across the street!
