Savings on Fixed Rate Plans

Often, customers report that they have been able to reap great savings on fixed rate plans in compared to rates offered with their local utility. On fixed rate plans, the rate you pay for electricity per kilowatt-hour remains the same for your entire contract length.

We recommend 24 and 36 month contract lengths with AP Gas & Electric, since the price of electricity varies so much over the course of a year that shorter contracts may not be a good deal. However, the price of electricity increases over time, so longer contracts can be a good deal to shield you from market changes. We do not recommend variable rate plans, since they are not regulated by the state government and can end up being expensive.

Because there are early termination fees, we recommend that you only sign up for fixed rate plans if you are sure that you will stay with AP Gas & Electric for the entire contract length. The one exception is for customers making a move.

If you show AP Gas & Electric proof of your move in advance, you will be able to avoid early cancellation fees.
