  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is Energy Connection?

    Energy Connection is a one stop shop for all things Energy. We make a complicated process simple. With decades of experience along with innovative technology EC procures the lowest electricity and gas rates available from over 50 separate suppliers. Then we offer customer service to monitor energy rates and opportunities based on the markets. We also provide energy savings services and products such as: solar, smart thermostats, energy management, lighting retrofit, energy audits, demand response, peak shaving, distributed generation, bill audits, storage, rebate administration... All of this in a simple and friendly customer first way.

    What is the difference between a utility company and supplier?

    The Utility company is the company that is responsible for transporting power to your home or business. The utility is also responsible for maintaining the power grid and doing onsite work such as installing and reading meters, and responding to power outages. The utility supplier is the company that generates and sells the actual electricity or gas. In closed energy markets, the utility company is the only company allowed to be a supplier. In open energy markets you have a choice. Energy Connection interviews and qualifies on an ongoing basis 50 suppliers to provide the maximum competitive platform to get the lowest rate and best terms available.

    My utility supplier is a reliable company. Why should I switch now?

    Although we do not always advocate our customers to switch suppliers, in an open energy market, Energy Connection insists it is always smart to explore your options. It should lead savings, price security, and/or cleaner energy. Your utility company is still responsible for service, delivery, billing and reliability of your gas and electricity. You may have an early termination fee if you exit your current contract early. We can get you a new contract with a start date to correlate with the end date on your current one. You can lock in a rate and protect your home or business from future price increases.

    Will my service change?

    Absolutely not. We only change where the energy source is coming from. Even in open energy markets, the utility company is still in charge of storing and managing the service of energy to your home or business.

    What are the benefits of locking in a fixed rate?

    You can enjoy the price consistency and reliability for the length of your contract that you choose. Instead of guessing what your bill will be each month, you will know what the rate will be. Enabling you to budget, forecast and protect you from future rate increases.

    How do I get started?
