Tips for Shopping Electricity Rates
The pricing formula for some electricity plans is simple and straight forward. But the way many electricity plans are priced can get pretty complicated. Plans can be priced with a mixture of flat fees, usage based charges, and bill credits that may fluctuate depending on usage level. Some plans also include credits that appear when you use above a certain amount of electricity but go away when you use an even higher amount.
As a result, the average electricity rate within a single plan can be substantially different at 500 kWh of monthly electricity usage than it is at 2000 kWh of monthly electricity usage.
If you live in an apartment or small townhome you must ensure you are comparing based on the 500 kWh average electricity rates. If you are looking at the 2000 kWh average electricity rates, you may find that what you thought was the best electricity plan is actually one of the worst for your situation.
At the same time, if you live in a larger home, you should be comparing rates based on 2000 kWh of average electricity usage – not 1000 kWh or 500 kWh.

The Electricity Facts Label
Don’t make the mistake of enrolling in an electricity plan without first reading the EFL. It is much easier to hide little surprises in marketing language than it is to conceal them in the EFL. The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) is the standardized document that every Addison electricity provider is required to provide with every plan they market.
The document lays out precisely what fees and expenses are included in a plan. If your plan has a bill credit that disappears as soon as you use a certain amount of electricity in a billing cycle, you will see it in this document. You will see what fees are being added to your bill for the regional electricity delivery utilities called TDUs.
You will also see how much green energy is used for your plan, what the cancelation fee is and what the contract term is.
If you are getting a “Free Nights” plan or any other “time of use” plan you will find in the EFL a breakdown of the specific rates you pay for a given time of day and day of the week.
EFLs for each plan can be found with the plan listing on Vaultelectricity.com
