There is a difference between utilities and providers. A utility company transmits power to Alpine homes and businesses. They also repair infrastructure damages and respond to outages. AEP Power North supports Alpine residents. Contact them, not your provider, if you experience an outage.
Conversely, an energy supplier generates power to sell to customers. Alpine residents can sign up for service with available providers like Change Energy, Constellation Energy, and Frontier Utilities. Currently, the lowest rate in Alpine is with Express Energy at 7.3 cents per kWh. See what rate you might pay by providing your ZIP code.
Types of electricity plans in Alpine
As you shop for the best electric company, you might come across different plan types. Consider your options before deciding on a provider:
- Fixed-rate plans: As its name suggests, you pay a fixed price per Kwh for the duration of your contract. You do not have to worry about price increases due to seasonal fluctuations and other factors.
- Variable-rate plans: Your price per Kwh varies each month. Some months, you might pay less when demand is lower. Alternatively, when energy demand rises, costs reflect this.
- Prepaid & no-deposit plans: It is common for suppliers to run your credit before starting service. If you have no credit history or a lower score, they might require a deposit. If you want another option, go with a prepaid plan. These plans allow you to pay as you go, with the supplier notifying you as your balance runs low.
