Energy Plan FAQs

What should l do if the power goes out? If the electricity at your home or office is off, you should report it to the utility that delivers the electricity to your premises. Don’t call the provider, which doesn’t maintain the lines or handle the delivery.

What is a fixed-rate plan? With a fixed-rate plan, electricity supply rates for the plan stay the same for the contract’s length. Your contract will show the rate you pay per 500 kilowatt-hours, 1,000 kilowatt-hours, and 2,000 kilowatt-hours. The amount of your bill will vary based on how much electricity you use each month.

What is a variable-rate plan? With a variable-rate plan, the base rate for your electricity can change. Often, with a variable-rate plan, the rate can change as frequently as every month. A variable-rate plan may make it a little harder to predict what your monthly electricity bill will be.

What happens if I move? If you move during the contract period, you must let your provider know at least 30 days before you want to stop service. You must also provide the company with your forwarding address. If you follow the procedure described in the Terms of Service document, you won’t have to pay a termination fee.

A few things to remember

Be sure to read the Electricity Facts Label before you sign up for an electricity plan. This document provides important information, such as:

  • The price you’ll pay per kilowatt-hour for the electricity you use
  • What percent of the energy comes from renewable sources
  • The fee for terminating your contract early

Your supplier setup is easy and hassle free. Once you order the electricity service from a new supplier, they’ll take care of setting up service with your utility. Don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption in your power while the switch is made.

Understand your electricity bill. You’ll still get your electricity bill from your local utility, which will continue to deliver your electricity. The utility also maintains the power lines, meters, and other electric infrastructure. You’ll find the utility fees listed on your monthly bill as delivery or transmission charges. You pay those charges along with electricity charges based on the supplier rate.
