How deregulation works

Deregulation gives consumers the flexibility to choose their retail energy provider (REP) from available options in their area. In regulated regions, consumers are limited to one choice – the utility company – which supplies electricity to homes and businesses. In deregulated areas, energy choice encourages competition between providers and often leads to lower electricity rates, flexible term options, and a better variety of plans. States that offer deregulated energy markets include Texas, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and more.

Just Energy energy plans

There are a variety of Just Energy plans with different term lengths and rates. All Just Energy plans are powered by 12.1 percent renewable energy. They also include an early termination fee of $175 if you cancel your plan before your contract ends. Popular Just Energy plans include:

Base Saver III

This is a fixed-rate,12-month plan that is the most affordable when the average household usage is around 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh). When your usage meets or greater than 1,000 kWh, you’ll receive a $75 credit.

Rate Shield

This is a 36-month, fixed-rate plan that gives you the stability of the same rate throughout the full term. Fixed-rate plans are ideal for households that prioritize security and wish to be protected from fluctuations in the energy market.

Weekends Free

This 12-month, fixed-rate plan offers free electricity from 7:00 p.m. on Friday to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday.

Just Energy for business customers

Green energy options with Just Energy

Every Just Energy electric plan offers you the option to offset some or all of your electricity consumption with renewable energy credits for an additional monthly fee. These credits support electricity generated from renewable sources including solar, wind, or hydropower. You can choose this option when you select your plan or throughout the term of your contract. If you install solar panels, you may be able to lower your monthly rate and lock it in for 20 years.

Community investment

Just Energy supports charitable organizations in the communities it serves. These include the Salvation Army’s Share the Warmth Fund, Gift of Warmth, and Neighbor For Neighbor Heat Fund that provides financial assistance to low income residents, and Sheltering Arms Senior Services in Texas.

No deposit options from Just Energy

Many energy providers require consumers to pay a deposit before they will begin service. Customers with a high credit score might be allowed to bypass paying a deposit. For customers with a low credit score or who wish to avoid paying a deposit, there are no deposit energy plans available on the Choose Energy marketplace. Many no deposit plans are prepaid, meaning you will pay for your electricity upfront and will top off your account when it begins to run low. 

Moving or transferring service with Just Energy

If you are moving to a new address, you won’t have to pay an early termination fee if you decide to cancel your current energy plan. When you move, you can choose a new provider in your area. If you’d like to transfer your Just Energy service to your new address, contact Just Energy to set up the transition.

Types of rates offered by Just Energy

Just Energy offers fixed-rate and variable-rate plans across its service areas. Fixed-rate plans mean you will secure a single rate that you will pay for every kWh you consume during your contract. This is an ideal rate type for consumers who value security and don’t want to be surprised by fluctuations in the wholesale price of electricity. With fixed-rate plans, you will be required to pay an early termination fee if you cancel your plan early unless you are moving.

Variable-rate plans do not provide the same level of security. Instead, the rate you pay will change based on the wholesale cost of electricity. During times of low demand, you may see lower energy rates. But when demand spikes, your electric rates will also go up. Variable-rate plans are on a month-to-month basis, so you can switch to another plan at any point without paying a fee.

Just Energy cancellation fees

For fixed-rate Just Energy plans, there are early termination fees if you cancel your plan before your contract is over. These fees amount to $175 for early cancellation.

  • Early termination fees

Once you’ve reviewed the Just Energy electric rates, chosen a plan, and confirmed your order, Just Energy will complete the set-up process with your utility or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP).
