The best providers for you depends on which ones are available near you and what you are looking for in a plan. If you want a rate locked in as long as possible, for instance, a provider with 36-month plans might be the best choice for you. If you’re just looking for the cheapest price, you should go with the lowest rate.
You can lower your energy bill by taking simple steps like turning your thermostat down, finding Energy Star appliances, and fixing any air leaks in your ducts or around your windows. You can also save by checking the SaveOnEnergy marketplace to see what rates are available in your area. We can help make switching plans easier.
Determine which energy plan is best for you based on your energy usage and billing needs. Prepaid plans may be a good option if you prefer paying into an account on your schedule. If you like the idea of a fixed rate and don’t mind paying a little more when energy rates are low, go for a fixed plan. A renewable energy plan might also be a priority for you, so search with the green energy filter to find the best option.
