SaveOnEnergy’s tips for easy electricity service setup

  • Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
    • Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
    • % renewable energy sourcing
    • Early termination fees
  • Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
  • Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.

How to move or transfer service with Green Mountain Energy

If you are moving to a new address, Green Mountain Energy makes it easy to transfer your energy service. Contact Green Mountain Energy about two weeks before your move, and they’ll take care of everything else on their end. If you’re moving outside of Green Mountain Energy’s service area, the company will let you end your contract without charging you an early termination fee.

The rate you’re quoted for a Green Mountain Energy plan in one part of the state could be entirely different from what someone pays in another part of the state.
