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 on your bill that come from your local utility to cover the cost of delivering energy to your home. Your utility may change these fees even if the energy rate from us is fixed.

What's Included in the Rate?

The rates above include your energy charge from Direct Energy, current delivery fees and other charges to cover the cost of energy delivery and service.

How to Sign Up

Signing up is easy! Just select your electricity plan and go through the online enrollment process. We'll take care of the rest.
