Plan Info


The plan information displays what the EFL says the average rate is at an exact usage amount. Just because you average 1,000 kWh a month, you will not always use exactly 1,000 kWh, and this rate will no longer apply to you.

Bill Profile


The bill profile shows you a graph of what your total bill will look like different usage amounts. Fixed and bundled rate plans will look fairly boring, but you will see the affect tiered rates will have on your bill throughout the course of a year.

Rate Profile


The rate profile shows what your average price per kWh will be at different usage amounts. If a plan has a monthly charge, your rate will naturally be higher the less you use. Most companies pass through TDSP fees, which usually include a base charge of $5-10.
