How To Switch Electricity Providers In Worcester
Switching providers on ElectricityRates.com is easy. All you have to do is follow this simple three-step process.
- Enter your ZIP Code – ElectricityRates.com will then provide you a list of plans available in Worcester.
- Compare Plans – Compare different plans and suppliers to find the right plan for you.
- Switch Providers – After you find the plan you like, select it to switch.
It’s that simple. National Grid still delivers your electricity and bills you, so there’s no interruption in your service when you switch. Your new electricity supplier will show up on your bill within one to two billing cycles.
There are two parts of your electricity bill, the delivery of your electricity and the electricity supply.
The delivery of your electricity is controlled by your local utility company, which is National Grid in Worcester’s case. The supply of your electricity is controlled by your electricity provider (sometimes called electricity supplier).
In states without Energy Choice, the local utility company is also the electricity provider for the whole service area. This essentially gives the utility companies a monopoly on electricity supply.
With Energy Choice, National Grid can still supply your electricity, but you have the option to switch electricity providers.
Energy Choice increases competition for electricity supply, helping keep prices down and providing more energy options to the consumer.
Types of Electricity Plans in Worcester
Energy Choice provides to many options to name them all here. So instead of that, ElectricityRates.com is showcasing the three most common types of electricity plans to choose from.
Fixed-rate plans lock your electricity rate in for the length of the plan. Since your rate can’t change, these plans can help you save the most. Fixed-rate plans also ensure you are not surprised by your electric bill when your utility raises electricity rates.
All plans on ElectricityRates.com have fixed rates.
Plans With Incentives
Some plans on ElectricityRates.com come with incentives. They can range from a simple 90-day risk-free trial to smart-home products.
Look in the Plan Details section under any plan to see what incentives it may have.
Renewable Energy Plans
If you want to support renewable energy, you can pick a renewable energy plan. These plans ensure the money you pay at the end of each month goes to renewable energy generators. These renewable energy plants then offset your energy usage by putting more renewable energy into the electric grid.
You can find renewable plans on ElectricityRates.com by looking for the 100% Renewable Sources sticker. Again, renewable plans, like all plans on ElectricityRates.com, are fixed-rate plans.
