How Portland Maine Power Companies Are Different From Suppliers
Maine as a whole is a deregulated electricity market. What this means to you as the consumer is that you have the power to choose your supplier. There are many benefits to deregulation. Not only does it prevent utility monopolies, but it drives competition between suppliers and historically is proven to keep rates lower than regulated markets.
Your Portland power company (utility), is predetermined based on your location. They are responsible for distributing your energy to your home or business and maintaining transmission lines as well. If you need to report a power outage, they are the one to call. By default, you will receive the Standard Offer price with the utility until you switch.
Suppliers in Maine are often referred to as Competitive Electricity Providers (CEPs). Shopping for a new CEP on your own can be time consuming. EnergyPricing.com makes it simple and efficient so you know you’re comparing identical offers.
Before you start shopping for your next agreement, it’s important to know when your current contract ends. This way you can avoid any potential termination fees.
Understanding Contract Terms and Options Doesn’t Need to Be Tricky
There are many products on the market that can make knowing where to start confusing. The basic product offers include fixed and variable types.
For residential customers, there are also products that can include a monthly service fee. Always ensure you review the terms and conditions to make sure you are choosing the right option.
Commercial clients benefit from fixed or block & index solutions. Within your energy supply, there are components that make up your total energy charge. Through a fixed product, you can choose which of those components or all you want to lock verses pass-through. Block & index is the opportunity to lock in a fixed amount of usage and then index a portion of it within your term.
