At NextEra Energy, we are always looking for ways to provide you with the best possible plans for affordable electricity, because we know you have a choice.
Electric Choice has brought the ability to choose a competitive supplier in many states. You may be able to lower your electricity rate and save money, find suppliers that support renewable energy resources or receive special rewards or incentives. Think about what is most important to you, and be sure to ask a lot of questions before making a choice.
Your electricity supplier should be licensed by your state’s Public Utility Commission. You will also want to find out the "price to compare" (the price per kilowatt hour your electric distribution company will charge), the length and terms of your agreement and whether there are any fees or penalties for switching suppliers.
To make the switch to a supplier like NextEra Energy Services, all you need to do is call or sign up through the supplier's website. Your new supplier will notify your electric utility of the change. The utility will then contact you by mail to make sure you selected this company to be your electricity supplier.
In addition to pricing information, you will also want to find out important information about the contract and terms of the agreement with your supplier. Some electricity suppliers offer plans with no minimum contract period, while others may offer plans with a minimum term, which may be several years. Be sure to ask competitive suppliers about the contract terms and whether there is a penalty if you cancel before the contract period ends.
You will also want to find out if an electricity supplier offers fixed or variable electric prices and understand the advantages and disadvantages of each. NextEra Energy Services offers you the ability to choose from a variety of plans to suit your needs.
A fixed-rate will remain the same, usually for a set period of time. This will give you certainty that your price will not change during the term of the agreement; however, if market prices fall you may have to wait until your contract expires to get a lower price.
A variable rate can change by the hour, day, month, etc. With this option you can save money if market prices decrease, but may have to pay more if rates go up.
