Comparing and Choosing Electricity Power Suppliers In Connecticut

10/08/2018

As a resident or business in a deregulated state such as Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, you have the opportunity to compare and switch to a new electricity supplier and lower your bill.  However, with so many options, choosing the right service can be time consuming.

 Understanding Your Electricity Bill    

First, to choose the right electricity supplier, you need to know some things that you may not know about electricity supply. One is about the rates that you pay for power supply.  Your electricity bill is split into two portions including Generation Charges and Delivery Charges (still regulated by the utility).

  1. The Generation Supply Charge is fixed and provided by the supplier.
  2. The Delivery Charge covers the distribution and transmission charges. This will be a standard rate that is regulated in the industry.

When choosing a power supplier in Connecticut, you should switch  if you can find a lower rate than you are paying and one that is also competitive with the current utility rate.
