questions to ask suppliers

Before you choose to purchase your energy supply from RG&E or a supplier other than RG&E (also known as an energy services company or ESCO), consider suppliers’ answers to the questions below. With any supplier you choose, RG&E will continue to deliver your energy safely and reliably.

  • What is your charge per kilowatt-hour or therm for energy supply?
  • Is this a fixed charge or does it vary depending on: market price, time-of-day, season or use?
  • What is the length of the agreement or contract?
  • Is there a security deposit, cancellation fee or other fees?
  • Can I switch at any time?
  • Do you have any incentives if I switch?
  • Will I save money if I switch and do you guarantee savings?
  • When will I be billed for energy supply and are your charges included in my RG&E delivery bill?
  • If I have questions about your charges, how do I contact you? 
  • What procedures are in place if I have a question or a complaint with you as my supplier?

Some suppliers offer a fixed or variable price for electricity supply. A fixed price may not guarantee savings on your energy bill.
