I currently have dominion as my electric provider and am paying $094 per kwh. I was checking the DEEP web site and it says dominion is charging $0749 per kwh and i would like to know why almost a cent and a half more.
I am with CL&P.

Each provider offers different plans. I can not tell you exactly why there is such a difference in price but it could be the lower price is a variable plan and the higher prices is a fixed rate plan. Most variable prices are just for the first month after that the price, in most cases, goes up a lot.

Some providers will offer a price for new customers which is lower than the prices for existing customers.

There are several reasons why the price for electricity is different from provider to provider. Each provider has to buy electricity from the power generation companies. Sometimes providers can buy electricity cheaper than another.

I hope this helps. Thanks for the Comment.
