Energy Choice allows you to lock in a low fixed-rate electricity plan. This means that for the duration of your plan, you won’t have to worry about unexpected rate hikes on your electricity supply. It can also help you save big on your electricity bill.

But these are not your only options. With Energy Choice, you can take advantage of a plan that offers incentives—like smart home products—for switching. You can also find plans with renewable energy.

Dayton Power & Light has multiple sustainability programs that you can participate in. For example, if you want to install a solar roof, you can use net metering and save money on your electricity bill.

However, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a solar roof to support renewable energy. You can choose a renewable energy electricity plan instead. When you switch to a 100% renewable plan, your electricity provider offsets your usage with renewable energy credits (REC’s) ensuring that more renewable energy enters the grid.

If you want to switch to a renewable energy plan, look for the 100% Renewable Sources label on any electricity plan.
