Electricity deals and promotions

Looking for a great deal on electricity? The energy industry can be a little tricky when it comes to promotions, so it’s important to know what to look for. Some providers offer what looks like great energy deals upfront but lock you into a higher rate once the promotion ends. Choose Energy is here to help you find a reliable, cheap electricity plan that fits your needs.

Finding the cheapest electricity plans

The first step in finding a great energy plan is figuring out what a good price will look like for you. Are you simply looking for the cheapest option? Do you want a long-term contract or a month-to-month option? What is your average usage level and how much are you willing to spend on your energy bill each month?

Remember, some great electricity deals don’t look so great once you factor in usage. Because of the tiered usage prices offered by most providers, a low rate when using 2,000 kilowatt hours per month doesn’t look so low if you go over or under that level of consumption.

Be sure to read and understand each plan’s Electricity Facts Label to get the true details. Use the free Choose Energy marketplace to find and compare available plans in your area. Simply enter your ZIP code to begin!

How are my rates calculated?

Figuring out how your monthly energy rates are calculated can seem confusing. Thankfully, you can find your approximate monthly cost, starting with this simple formula:

Monthly Usage (kWh) x Electric Rates ($/kWh) = Approximate Cost per Month

For example, if your household uses an average of 1200 kilowatts hours (kWh) each month and your electric rate is 6.7 cents per kilowatt hour ($0.067/kWh), your estimated cost will be $80.40 per month – plus or minus any usage discounts or upcharges.

Bottom line: The best electricity deals out there might be working with your family to control usage rather than looking for promotions.
