Finding the cheapest electricity plans

First, you must determine what a reasonable price is for you. Then, ask yourself what other factors are important. 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 monthly energy bill? Are you interested in reducing your carbon footprint with a renewable energy option?

Remember, some great electricity deals don’t seem significant 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 can be more costly if you go over that level of consumption. 

Some providers charge a hidden usage fee if you don’t meet the lowest energy consumption for that plan. Be sure to read and understand each plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to get an accurate idea of the plan you’re considering before you sign up.

How are my rates calculated?

Calculating your monthly energy rates can be initially unclear. To estimate your monthly cost, use this simple formula:

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

For example, suppose your household uses an average of 1,200 kilowatt-hours (kWh) each month, and your electric rate is 9.8 cents per kWh ($0.098/kWh). Your estimated monthly cost will be $117.60, plus or minus any usage discounts or upcharges. Then, be sure to factor in your utility company’s monthly delivery and usage charges for failing to meet any tiered threshold for the most accurate estimates.

Bottom line: Hidden fees and requirements can make a good deal turn bad. Sometimes, the best electricity deals might not include looking for the best new promotions. It might instead be working with your family to reduce your electricity usage.
