Consumer Reviews

Some customers report that fixed rate plans end up being a good deal, and savings are noticeable. Other customers have had positive experiences with customer service representatives over the phone.

However, some consumers feel that sales practices are not transparent. Additonally, deceptive methods may be used to enroll new customers.

Variable & Fixed Rates

The rate you pay for electricity per kilowatt-hour is drastically affected by whether you choose a variable or fixed rate plan.

Customers are often lured by variable rate plans since they do not have a cancellation fee, and there is no contract involved. However, because rates are not regulated they often skyrocket after the first few months.

Fixed rate plans are preferable. Term lengths range from 12-36 months, and there are early cancellation fees. Read more about common contract conditions.

Term Length Early Cancellation Fee
12 months $150
24 months $250
36 months $350

You can avoid an early termination fee if you provide AP G&E with:

  • Proof that you are moving to a new home
  • Your forwarding address

You will receive only one bill from your local utility after changing to AP Gas & Electric.


Based on your credit history, AP G&E may require a $300 deposit to open a new account.

Auto Pay Options

Customers have the option to sign up for auto pay with their AP Gas & Electric service. On the AP G&E website, you can create an account and enter your credit card information to start automatic payment. Payments are withdrawn 2-3 business days before your due date.
