Certainly, you want to have a great energy supplier to make sure that you get your electricity supplied in a timely, cost-effective manner.  In states where there is deregulation, you can enjoy a choice, selecting from many companies including IDT Energy.

While selecting the company of your choice, you should also prepare for power outages in the home.  You should always know where your circuit breakers are located and how to check the breaker switch to see if this is tripped.  You should have flash lights with fresh batteries readily available and know where they are.

Purchase a battery-powered radio or television set to listen to news and weather announcements. Have candles or oil lamps (and matches) available.  Post the emergency numbers for your electric utility and for an electrician nearby in case you need to call.
