Is her name on the deed? Is she able to enter into agreements for your property? Maybe you can exercise some slamming type law to get out of it.

Sorry for your luck.

For electric it's called Retail Open Access. For gas, it's mostly known as "Gas Customer Choice".

In electric, you come out way ahead if you're a large commercial or industrial customer (>1MW load). For residential customers it is often a wash and a large portion of the time they lose big time.

In Michigan, DTE and Consumers Energy pump gas into the ground all summer long then during the winter they pump it back out. So, they aren't paying "spot prices" for natural gas. This worked beautifully until the last year with gas prices constantly going down. In other words, historically, gas has been super cheap in Michigan (compared to the rest of the midwest and certain the northeast) due to dollar cost averaging (and the ability to pump the gas into the ground) but right now people are coming out ahead being a "Gas Customer Choice" user because spot prices are so low (warm winter, bad economy, lots of new gas wells).

We are both on deed, Consumer's Energy account is in her name because when we bought the house in 96 my work schedule did not give me time to get utilities turned on at the house.

This is the first time she's done something like this. Usually, if she gets these sales pitches she tells them they have to talk to me.

In a way it's my fault. It was always easier to just do stuff myself instead of discuss how to do it with her. Now, she's easy prey for scams. I'm trying to get her to make decisions so if something happens to me she's not totally screwed. Backfired in this case.

Been through worse, I'll figure this out. Damn- there I go again.

I know this post is two years old, but bishop just ran out of natural gas!

All of the savings for the last two years still puts me ahead, but I just switched back to consumers.

I kinda wonder what the legalities are to what they are doing.
They have to have a permit from the city to solicite door to door. Ask to see their permit, odds are they will leave. No permit, invite them inside while you call the police on them.
