How to compare electricity utilities

electric utilities compareThe best way to compare electricity utilities is to first decide on if you will want a short term rate or a long term rate.

By committing and locking into a long term fixed electric rate you can be assured of the same price all year long.

A short term electric rate changes sometimes after the first month and usually that change is upwards.

If you are a procrastinator that rate could continue to go up each month for several months before you do something about it.

Rather than deal with price unpredictability many people prefer to choose a fixed electric rate from their electricity utility and most providers offer fixed rate plans.

The electricity utilities that only offer month to month prices often list their prices as competitive but raise their prices after the first month.

Once you have decided on a type of rate plan you can compare their offers against each other from multiple electricity utilities.

It is much easier to compare fixed rate plan offers as all fees and charges are bundled in making an easy comparison available.

Since a month to month rate could do anything after the first month there is no real good way to compare these type of offers.

To begin comparing fixed electric rate offers you can use the compare chart to the right.
