Here are some interesting blog entries from Texas Electricity Ratings partners that I wanted to pass along.
Why Doesn’t Houston Bury Power Lines? – This article from Spark Energy discusses some of the reasons why we don’t see more communities burying power lines in Houston. Burying power lines is a common practice in other parts of the country, and would seem like common sense in a part of Texas that is prone to the occasional Hurricane. This article discusses some of the reason, and they’re not all related to the cost.
Bounce Energy – Bounce has written a number of blog posts lately focused on helping Texans during their moving process. The series includes an overview of the moving process, some pre-move tips, as well as post-move ideas and suggestions. It should come in handy for anyone moving this summer.
Direct Energy’s Disaster Supply Kit – And finally, Direct Energy indicates to you what should go in a Disaster Supply Kit. This is important, particularly for areas of Coastal Texas as hurricane season approaches. However last winter’s Ice Storms were a reminder to everyone that it is a good idea for anyone to have a disaster supply kit ready, regardless of whether you’re in a Hurricane zone or not.
