So last winter after checking different electricity providers I shared what I signed my mom up with for locked in 6 months rates.
Now that her contract is up a different company has the cheapest electricity rates. If you don’t lock in you are at the mercy of National Grid and their winter price spikes.
GMG FOB also did some research and he locked in at 10.4 cents per kWh (but a better price is being offered right now by Direct Energy)
Here’s what Marc wrote-
Hey Joey – thought this might interest you…
I just recently re-upped with ThinkEnergy for 12 months @ 10.4 cents/kWh.
Attached is a pdf showing supply rates for Nat Grid – past and present.
Looks like ThinkEnergy is still a steal through April, 2016. Below are the 4 recently rate histories. Following that trend, it seems that at worst 10.4 will probably break even after April 2016, but can still cancel at any time. Thanks again for tips via GMG.
Recent Rate History:
11/1/15 to 4/30/16: 13.038 cents/kWh
5/1/15 to 10/31/15: 9.257 cents/kWh
11/14 to 4/30/15: 16.274 cents/kWh
5/1/14 to 10/31/14: 8.277 cent/kWh
So if you don’t lock in at the 10.15 cents per kWh with Direct Energy and then you can look forward to the variable pricing highlighted in the chart above which is way higher (andf way higher in teh months that you use the bulk of your electricity).
There is no penalty for signing up and all you have to do is click on the link and sign up with the cheapest option out there currently- Direct Energy at 10.15 cents per kWh and here’s the kicker- Direct energy not only has the cheapest price I could find out there for locked in 12 months, but they also will give you a $50 bill credit for signing up and give one to the person that refers you.
An absolute no-brainer. If you locked in last year- you saved a ton and as you talk to anyone else that took advantage it was completely painless to do so.
Here are the current rates from different energy suppliers-
If you sign up with Direct Energy using this link you’ll get the cheapest rate currently available and a $50 bill credit to boot.
