natural gas shoppingIf you live in a state that has seen energy deregulation, you have a wonderful opportunity to save on your energy costs. But first, you need to understand energy deregulation and how you can best put it to work for you as you shop and compare rates within your local area.

At Discount Power, we provide personalized plans, outstanding service, and fair and transparent pricing for our natural gas customers.

Here’s some basic information to consider when you’re choosing your new natural gas supplier:

What is a natural gas supplier?

Your local utility company isn’t your only option for natural gas, however, let’s point out how they still fit into the equation:

Your local utility company still manages delivery of natural gas to your home and is responsible for the natural gas infrastructure in your community. If you have a problem with your gas delivery, if there is an issue with your gas lines or if you smell gas, you should contact them directly.

When you go with Discount Power, we supply the natural gas that is going into your home.

Check your contract
You have the option of choosing a natural gas supplier over your utility. However, if you are already a customer of another natural gas supplier, make sure switching to another one doesn’t cost you in early termination fees.

If those concerns don’t exist, you’re ready to shop freely for a new gas supplier.

What to look for
Choosing a natural gas supplier isn’t just about the price of the natural gas, although that does, of course, matter. There are several factors to take into consideration:

Unit price. This is classic comparison shopping. Find out how much your local utility is charging for each unit of natural gas. Then shop around online for natural gas suppliers in your area and find their rates.

The fine print. Closely review the contract to understand any terms, conditions and fees that may apply when getting started. Doing this highlights the savings available based on the contract’s structure and length.

Plan options. At Discount Power, we know our customers are unique. A one-size-fits-all natural gas plan is just not going to cut it. If you like stability and security, one of our Fixed Rates lets you set what price you pay for your natural gas for the duration of the plan. Want to take advantage of the markets? Our Variable Pricing option may work for you. And you’ll always get to choose the term length of your plan!

Rewards and other benefits. Some natural gas suppliers offer rewards programs and other benefits to their newest customers. Weigh these sign-on bonuses to see what pays the best dividends for you.

Discount Power customers are eligible for monthly shopping and dining rewards that can total up to $1,200 per year!

The natural gas supplier. Make sure the supplier you are considering is on your state’s list of registered and approved natural gas suppliers. Unfortunately, there are scammers out there, so it’s important to double check. Discount Power is approved in several states and our service area continues to grow.
