5 Things to Know Before You Order Buffalo Electricity Service

  1. Know your usage. Ok you don't have to "know" but you should have an idea. Are you moving into an apartment/small house, a medium size home or condo, or a large home? Home size matters and relates to the average usage. Electricity rates are based on volume and are based on 500kWh, 1000kWh and 2000kWh use per month. In other words a small house or apartment customer will generally pay a higher rate than a high usage / large house customer.
  2. Know your credit score. Do you have great, average or poor credit? If you have average or poor credit you'll probably be asked to pay a deposit - generally $150-$300. You can also use a no-deposit plan that you pre-pay.
  3. Understand Utility Charges. TDSPs are the local electricity utility company in Buffalo. They own and maintain the poles and wires, read the meters and get your power back on when there's a storm or power loss. About 30-40% of your bill is made up of local utility fees.
  4. All rates displayed on our site include Utility Charges and Fees.

Buffalo Energy Plans

There are over 200 plans across 40+ providers currently available in the Buffalo Market. They range from 1 month variable rate plans to 60 months in duration. The easiest way to break all this down is into three categories.

Fixed Rate Plans

Fixed rate plans have terms ranging from 3 to 36 months, and provide a "fixed" rate for your electricity usage.

Variable rate or Month to Month plans

Variable rate plans change on a monthly basis. They are good for those who need short term flexibility,, and cannot commit to a long term contract. Variable rate plans change monthly and may double or triple if there is a weather event. (And we've had a few in the last 5 years). We do not recommend these plans.

Pre-paid Plans

For those who have not built credit, or want to avoid paying a deposit, there are pre-paid plans. Prepaid plans require that you establish an account and fund a balance. Usually $25-$50. Once the account is funded, your electricity is turned on and every day your balance is reduced by the cost of electricity used that day. The provider will contact you via text, app and automated calls to add money to your account as the balance changes.
