Last week, my power company wanted to cut me a deal.

What would I need to verify this is a good idea? A couple clicks to bring up my billing history solved the problem.

I spend about $145 MORE over the course of the year with the savings plan. That's a real world math problem that I was interested in solving. The offer is tempting. No more power bill anxiety! Click!

Would you consider this financial literacy? I'd say so. No different than understanding a credit card cash back system in my opinion.

My power company has some new offers for me. Among the variety of choices, they want to reduce the uncertainty that comes from seasonal power needs.

Seems like a good deal. My power bill is $110.00 no matter how low I crank the AC in the summer or how high I crank the heater for the 1 week a year that you need those around here.

Should I take them up on the offer? Here's my last year of usage and the highest bill I paid highlighted.

What extra information would you want? What kind of discussion can you have around this? What's up with January?

Answer next week.
