Types of electric plans in Massachusetts

If you are new to the energy market, you will come across a number of different electric plans. Fixed-rate, variable-rate, no-deposit, and green energy plans are some of the most common options you will find in Massachusetts. Each of these comes with their pros and cons. Call the number on the screen to speak with an energy expert if you want to learn more about your options.

Fixed-rate plans in Massachusetts

With this plan, you get to lock in a single rate for the next twelve months or longer, depending on the contract. Despite price changes in the market, you will be charged the same rate for the entire term of your contract. If you need to cancel your contract early, you will likely be charged a termination fee. 

Variable-rate plans in Massachusetts

If you want to have more flexibility and do not want to enter into a contract, a variable-rate plan could be right for you. There is no contract, but the rate you are charged could change every due to fluctuations in the energy market. This means your rate could go up during times of high energy demand.

No deposit and prepaid energy plans in Massachusetts

Some electricity providers require a deposit before they can start the service, especially if the consumer has a low credit score. With prepaid plans, you are allowed to skip the deposit and pay a set amount in advance, and then add money into your account as you go. When your account is running low, you will receive a notification from your provider.

Green energy plans in Massachusetts

Many electricity providers in Massachusetts offer consumers the option to choose green energy to power their houses.  Renewable energy plans in Massachusetts are powered by green sources such as wind power or solar energy. While some companies combine both traditional and renewable energy to offset your home’s carbon footprint, others use completely green energy. Enter your ZIP code above and filter for green energy plans to explore the green energy providers that operate near you.

Business energy plans in Massachusetts

Cheap energy prices in Massachusetts

Electricity prices do not always remain the same. Among various factors, the changing seasons affect the cost of energy significantly. For instance, hot summers mean people rely more on air conditioning, spiking the demand for electricity and its cost. In the cooler months, when the weather turns mild, the demand drops and the price becomes cheaper. If you are shopping for cheap electricity plans in Massachusetts, you are more likely to get a better rate during the cooler season as opposed to summer.
