When comparing Elizabeth electricity rates and providers consider the following items:
- Fixed or Variable: There are two types of rates under an electric supply plan: fixed and variable. With fixed-rate plans, one rate is offered and cannot change for the duration of the contract. Variable-rate plans, on the other hand, have fluctuating rates that vary along with market wholesale prices and will change each month. The choice is yours.
- Shorter or Longer Term Contracts: Contracts with retail electricity providers can last as little as 3 months and as long as 36 months.
- Does the Provider Require Switching Fees: Some providers – not all – will require a one-time small fee for switching to their service.
- Does the Provider Offer Incentives to Switch: Some providers may offer sign-on bonuses, discounts on energy-related products and services, and more. Many providers even offer rewards programs in which you can earn free electricity, cash-back, airline miles, travel and dinning rewards, and more.
- Would You Like a Renewable Electricity Plan: Fortunately for all of us, renewable electricity is more affordable than ever before. Many retail electricity providers now offer Green plans that allow you to power your home or business with partial or 100% renewable electricity. What’s even better is that many of these plans have rates that are still below the default rates of PSE&G.
