In order to protect consumers, the laws and regulations around electricity deregulation were set up so that residential consumers couldn’t be auto-renewed into term contracts without their expressed approval. This means that residential users have to be careful to understand when their contract term ends with their electricity company.
Frequently, electricity companies will roll their consumers who come out of term onto a variable rate plan at the end of the contract. Sometimes the variable rate plan can be a good rate, but oftentimes, and depending on the time of year, it is not. In many cases the really good rate product that you may have signed up for is designed to expire right before the summertime. If you aren’t careful you may find that you are on a higher variable rate just as you hit your highest use months of the year.
