In addition to offering plans that fit your unique needs, you won't have to do anything differently than what you're already used to. Your local utility will continue to deliver your energy, read your meter and send your bill while NRG Home sells and provides the energy. So you can visit Willis Tower or Lake Michigan without worrying about your energy.
