Silly Utility

Compare Utility Bills With Neighbors.

screen shot 2017-02-18 at 11 23 12 am

Background

Renegotiate your utility bills by learning what your neighbors pay.

Everybody on your block probably pays different prices for their internet / TV and phone service. Also, the utility companies have a strong upper hand when talking with you:

  • They know how much you pay, and everyone else pays
  • They write the legislation that prevents you from starting a competing company
  • They make agreements with competing firms to ensure only one or a few companies operate in one zip code
  • They advertise one price on TV and then charge a completely different price on the bill

We are a civic project to fix this problem by empowering consumers to make better decisions.

  • See what your neighbors pay
  • Call your utility company to renegotiate your rate
  • Use the money you save to go on vacation
