Understand supply plan options
From Baytowne to Carriage Center, residents and business owners have the power to choose an energy supply plan thanks to Plug In Illinois. Understanding your options is important, and more specifically, understanding supply plan types is even more important. The two major types are fixed- and variable-rate supply plans.
Fixed-rate supply plans secure a rate per kWh for the length of a contract, making household budgeting a lot easier. Variable-rate supply plans don’t secure a supply rate, but are free from long-term contracts. If you’re in the market to see how low a rate can get (at the risk of experiencing high market prices), a variable plan might be your best bet. If you own a home and want to keep your finances as easy to understand as possible, a fixed-rate supply plan might suit your needs.
Don’t call your competitive electricity company in an emergency
When your power goes out, if you see a downed power line or if you smell a natural gas leak, don’t call your chosen retailer. Instead, you should contact your utility. In the event of an emergency in Champaign, call Ameren.
