Thompsons Energy Plans

There are over 200 plans across 40+ providers currently available in the Thompsons 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.
