How Do I Switch Energy Companies?

Make the Most of Your Energy Choice

As an empowered consumer in a deregulated energy market, you have the freedom to choose the energy company that’s right for you. This means you can shop around the energy marketplace to find what fits your needs and budget.

Even better –switching to an energy provider that better serves your needs isn’t difficult at all.

How Do I Sign Up with a New Provider?

Whether it’s online, over the phone, or with a door-to-door representative, switching to a new energy company is stress-free and designed with the consumer in mind. While each company competing for your business might have small nuances that are specific to them, the basic process looks like this:

  1. Review the plans and rates for your area.
  2. Select the plan that you like most.
  3. Provide all the necessary information (including any account number you might have with your local utility company).
  4. Relax.

What Should I Expect with the Switch

Once you’ve completed the steps above, everything rests in the hands of your new energy company. While it can take up to a full billing cycle for the transfer in service to go into effect (as it can depend upon the billing practices of your local utility company), you don’t have to worry about service reliability or interruptions in your natural gas or electricity service. From your end, the change should be undetectable.

Anything Else I Should Know?

Before you make the switch from your current provider, be sure to review your current contract. If you decide to switch to a new energy company before your current contract has expired, you may run into early termination fees or other such penalties.
