Fixed vs. Variable Rate Plans — Pros and Cons

Energy deregulation has created more options than ever before for homeowners in PA, OH, and MD. Though energy offers come in different plans with slightly different pricing, length, and other specifics, generally speaking, all fall into one of two categories: fixed rate or variable. With a fixed rate plan, you lock into a price for a set period, whereas variable pricing is subject to change on a month-to-month basis.

Every home and every homeowner is different — what appeals to one customer about one type of plan may be a negative for another. That said, there are reasons to consider both fixed and variable rate structures:

  • Fixed plans save you uncertainty and make budgeting easier. With a fixed rate plan, you pay the same per unit rate every month. While you still pay for the electricity you use, the amount your utility company charges you per unit of energy stays the same for the duration of the contract. This means you don’t pay a penalty when you run additional appliances during periods of high demand – like your air conditioning in the summer. It also means that budgeting for your energy needs each month is simpler, as there is less possibility of an unpleasant surprise when market prices spike and your bill rises accordingly.
  • Variable plans can have higher potential savings. With a variable rate plan, you enjoy more freedom over your utility bill. Variable plans are great for anyone who tracks energy prices and is conscientious about restricting appliance use when rates are at their highest. With a variable plan, you can potentially have low bills when rates drop lower than expected.

With each of these positives comes a downside, however. Fixed rate plans call you to lock into a rate for a certain period of time. Conversely, variable rate plans leave you at the mercy of the unpredictable energy market — when prices spike, your bill will rise with them.

Either type of plan is a good choice, but you should do your research and work with a partner you trust. There are many resources available online for comparing energy supply rates — Shipley Energy can help you check pricing by using your ZIP code and comparing plans based on a variety of criteria.

Energy Deregulation in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Maryland

To understand energy supplier rates in PA, OH, and MD, you need to understand how a deregulated market works. In a deregulated market, three companies are involved in bringing electricity or natural gas to your property:

  • The generation company that produces your electricity or refines your natural gas
  • The energy supplier that buys it
  • The utility company that distributes it to your home

Before deregulation, utility companies also played the role of the supplier, which led to an energy market monopoly. Deregulation has created more choice for consumers, giving them the option of working with a dedicated supplier who can buy in bulk and pass the price opportunities on through different rate structures and incentives.

When you choose an energy supplier in PA, OH, or MD, you aren’t taking business away from your utility company — you’re specifying how and from whom they buy your electricity or natural gas. If you don’t choose an energy supplier, you’ll continue to pay the going market rate for the electricity you use.

Regardless of whether or not you specify a supplier, your utility company will continue to handle your billing and any service or emergency needs you have. Selecting a supplier, like Shipley Energy, won’t involve any interruption to your service, and it doesn’t require purchasing any special equipment. The process is automatic and instant, and there is no need to book an appointment with a technician.

Pennsylvania and Ohio began deregulating their energy markets in 1999, and Maryland followed suit shortly thereafter.
