Direct Energy FAQs
Direct Energy offers fixed- and variable-rate plans for residential customers. It also offers commercial energy plans for small businesses. Some of its plans include 100% renewable energy and free Amazon Prime membership.
Direct Energy may require a deposit if you don’t meet specific credit score requirements. You’ll receive your deposit back after 12 months of consecutive on-time payments. If you’d prefer to avoid a deposit, you can explore no-deposit energy options on our marketplace, such as a prepaid plan from Direct Energy.
Direct Energy charges an ETF for canceling fixed-rate plans before the end of your contract. Customers who move outside of Direct Energy’s service area can have this fee waived.
Direct Energy offers a variety of energy plans, and there’s not one plan that’s best for everyone. Instead, picking the best energy plan will depend on your energy usage habits and plan preferences.
