Keeping electricity costs affordable is essential to any budget. If you’re a Duke Energy customer, choosing a provider could be the key to the cost savings you’re looking for. When you compare Duke Energy’s electric rates to those from other suppliers such as Shipley Energy, you can find lower prices that work better for you.
When you choose a supplier, it is important to remember:
Thanks to deregulation laws in the energy market, customers now have choices regarding what they pay for electricity and who supplies it. Before deregulation, your utility company would buy energy from a generation company and set the prices, and there were no other options for customers.
After deregulation, the market became competitive with more suppliers setting electricity prices, resulting in better rates for customers. When you choose a supplier, they set the prices you pay while Duke Energy remains your utility company and continues to provide you with regular, uninterrupted service.
Duke Energy serves 7.7 million customers throughout the Midwest, Carolinas, and Florida. As one of the largest electric power companies in the U.S., Duke Energy provides extremely reliable electricity service.
If you are currently a Duke Energy customer, selecting a supplier will not change your relationship. They will continue to deliver your electricity as usual while you benefit from paying lower electricity rates.
If you want to find the best deal, use Shipley Energy’s online price checking tool. Enter your zip code to find out what prices and plans are currently available in your area. We’re proud of this transparent tool, as we think everyone should be informed before choosing an energy supplier.
As you shop for electricity rates, keep the Duke Energy price to compare (PTC) in mind. This refers to the market price the utility company charges for electricity. You should use the PTC when looking at other plans to ensure you’re getting a good deal.
Many factors contribute to the price you pay for electricity, including:
Shipley Energy is dedicated to giving you options so you can find plans that meet your needs and preferences.
