You Have a Choice When It Comes to Energy Suppliers in Delaware
Some states decided to deregulate its energy market to allow consumers a choice in their supplier of electricity. More recently, since suppliers have recently been able to do their billing in conjunction with the utility, there are now many Retail Electric Suppliers (RES) providing less expensive and greener electricity alternatives for residents and businesses.
Customers in Delaware can choose to receive their electric supply from the utility or from one of these new alternative suppliers such as US Power and Light. We are are able to offer lower rates because we are able to buy electricity more frequently than the utility, and can better estimate the amount to purchase because we have fewer customers than the much larger utilities.
If you’re an Delaware resident, you’ve probably noticed that your electric bills are broken down into two main parts. One is supply (where your electricity originates) and the other is distribution (how it arrives to your home, via the physical power lines). If you “switch” your electricity through US Power and Light, you are simply replacing one supplier with another. Distribution will always be handled by a Delaware utility company so there is never an interruption in service when you switch in Delaware. It can be confusing to sort through all of the suppliers and plan options, and that’s where we can really help. US Power and Light enables you to compare electricity providers, choose the best plan for your situation, and easily make the switch.
A major question you should consider when deciding whether to switch electricity providers in Delaware is: “What will happen to electric rates?” This can be a tricky question to answer as rates are perpetually in flux. In the short-term it’s difficult to predict exactly what will happen to rates, but when looking at a longer term picture things become a bit more clear. Based on the graph above, electric rates in the U.S. have been steadily increasing over the past decade. Assuming this trend continues, the best way to protect yourself from increasing rates is to switch into a 12-month or 24-month plan and lock into a low rate.
