Ohio energy plan FAQs

How does a variable-rate plan work? If you choose a variable-rate plan, it means your electricity price might change over the term you have service. Electric rates vary on a wide variety of factors like seasonal variances, changes in demand, and more. Therefore, the rate you pay in the winter might be different than the price you pay during the spring. 

What is a fixed-rate plan? With a fixed-rate plan, you pay the same rate for the length of the contract. That makes budgeting easier, though your bill will vary according to usage.`

We also offer resources if you want an alternative energy plan like a prepaid option. To see providers available in your area, enter your ZIP above. 

Why does Choose Energy run a credit check? Most suppliers request a credit check when they set up service. They do this to verify your information and to determine if a deposit is warranted. If you do not feel comfortable doing a credit check, you can filter out no-deposit plans to choose one of those instead. 

A few things to remember:

Read your plan’s documentation. It contains information like:

  • Your electricity rate–suppliers determine your rate based on your usage 
  • The percentage of your plan that offers renewable energy incentives
  • Whether the provider charges early termination fees

Enjoy a hassle-free setup from your supplier: Once your order completes, your new provider will set up service. There shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.

Understanding your electricity bill: Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructures like meters and power lines. Your utility fees are TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.
