5 Things to Know Before You Order Ponder 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 Ponder. 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.
  5. Understand Your Electricity Facts Label (EFL) The EFL sets out the rates and charges based on usages of 500, 1000 and 2000kWh.

Electricity Plan Types in Ponder

Now that we have explained TDSP rates, the second thing to consider is the type of electricity plans a customer can buy. Each plan will likely end up having different rate scales. There are three types of electricity plans you can choose from when selecting an energy plan that best fits your needs.

Fixed Rate Electricity Plan in Ponder

Lock in low energy rates for a period of months ranging from 9 to 36. Be aware that these contracts typically charge an early termination fee if you switch before your term ends.

Variable Rate Electricity Plan in Ponder

Month to month contracts with rates that vary. You won't have to worry about deposits or early termination fees, but rates can decrease or increase from month to month.

Pre-Paid Electricity Plan in Ponder

You deposit money into an account that your energy company bills directly depending on your use. Keep in mind there are often daily charges with these plans. Rates typically change from month to month.

There are other kinds of plans, such as green plans, or plans that come bundled with things like Smart Thermostats, but for the most part, these three plans are the main three kinds of choices available.
