Tips on Shopping for Energy

What's In It for Me?

Energy choice means you can tailor your plan to your needs. Make sure to choose the plan that fits with your lifestyle and usage patterns.

Consider the Total Cost

The total cost of a plan has many factors, including your rate, usage and fees charged by your utility to deliver energy to your home.

What's Your Usage?

You can easily calculate your total energy cost by multiplying your usage by the rate. Check your past bills to see your historical usage.

Delivery Fees

Delivery fees are separate charges from your local utility to cover the cost of delivering energy to your home. These fees are not included in your rate and may change even if the rate from us is fixed.

What's Included in the Rate?

The rates above include your energy charge from Direct Energy. They do not include charges from your local utility for delivering energy to your home.

How to Sign Up

Make sure you have an account with your local utility and have this account information on hand. Select your plan and go through the online enrollment process. We'll take care of the rest.
