Comparing Energy Rates

Utility rates are like tax rates. They’re set by government agencies. Your CPA understands tax rules, and helps you minimize your tax bill. To help you understand utility rules, and minimize your electric bill, consider this:

Buying power from electricity suppliers that compete with your utility may save you money, or it may not. Always compare any rate you’re offered with a full year of prices from your utility. Comparisons to the utility’s “current price” are suspect, because energy prices vary widely with the season. Only make a choice based on the 12-month average.
