Steps to Take When Your Electricity Plan Is About to Expire
If you haven’t shopped for a new electricity plan in a long time, you probably aren’t in a contract. If that is the case, you are probably paying a rate way higher than you would likely find with other providers in the market. Providers tend to transition customers to month to month plans once their previous plan expires. These monthly rates are almost always higher than what you would pay if you were in a contract – sometimes by a lot.
If you find yourself in a situation where you are not under a contract you need to shop around to find a plan with a better rate than you are paying. You can almost certainly find one. Your current provider may have a plan that offers better rates than you are currently paying. But with so many other companies competing for your business, you will probably find the cheapest rate by switching to a new provider who is eager to win your business.
If you are currently under a contract, you should begin shopping for a new plan as early as 60 days prior to the end of your current contract. Most providers will allow you enroll in a new plan while setting the switch date up to 60 in advance. This way, if you find a great rate on a new plan, you can lock it in well in advance of the expiration of your current plan.
