Understand Your Middletown Electric Supply
Delaware is one of many states where the energy market is deregulated. This prevents utility monopolies and fosters competition among suppliers. Suppliers set their rates in line with the current market, keeping the price of power down. As a consumer, you get to choose your supplier based on their rates and terms.
Suppliers send their power to utility companies for distribution. Utilities operate in set service territories and deliver energy to homes and businesses in these regions. Utilities are also in charge of power line maintenance and outage response. In Middletown, your utility is Delmarva Power. You can contact them when outages or power line issues occur.
When you sign a contract with a new supplier, you’ll agree to a fixed or variable rate. Fixed agreements include a set rate for a set period, while variable rates change from month to month based on changes in the energy market.
The right choice for you might vary based on the market when you sign and how much risk you’re willing to take on. Rarely do variable rate agreements make sense for the end user. The risk is far greater than the reward. We typically advise against a variable product or one with a monthly fee for our small commercial and residential clients. Whichever product you choose, make sure your new service starts after your current contract to avoid any termination fees.
Reduce Your Middletown Electric Rate an Auction
If you’re a large commercial or industrial consumer, reducing your rate can lead to significant savings on your energy bill. At EnergyPricing.com, we make it easy to compare rates and cut energy expenses on your next bill.
On our site, we host reverse energy auctions that can help you lower your rate even further than a traditional RFP. Our energy experts identify suppliers in your area based on your load profile and invite them to bid on your business’ energy supply. Suppliers know you want the best rate on the market and they will have the opportunity to rebid on your energy if they are not the lowest. When the auction closes, you will have complete transparency into the process by reviewing all the bids that took place.
With the help of your energy expert, they will review your contract options and identify the right supplier for you.
