What is the difference between a fixed and variable rate plan?

City Power and Gas offers both fixed and variable plans.

A fixed rate product may be higher or lower than utility rates, but, unlike utility rates, a fixed rate product will not change during the life of your contract. You are protected against unexpected and costly price increases and have greater control over the cost of your gas.

A variable rate plan allows you to purchase gas at market-based prices that change from month to month. While a variable rate is subject to monthly price increases or decreases, it may help you realize the lowest possible cost in the market. However, it also exposes you to possible price increases, and, unlike a fixed rate, a variable rate does not protect you against price volatility. This may be higher or lower than the utility rate.  

City Power and Gas offers competitively priced 3,6,9 and 12-month fixed rate plans for customers who are looking for price protection and competitive variable rate pricing for customers seeking the lowest energy rate at a given point in time. Shop our rate plans to find the plan that is perfect for your needs.

What is energy deregulation?

Energy deregulation gives consumers and businesses a choice when it comes to their energy supplier.  In deregulated markets, utilities no longer hold a monopoly on energy service as consumers and businesses have access to adequate and competitively priced energy supplies, able to choose from multiple competitive retailers that offer various service plans at competing rates.

Your state appointed utility still takes care of the infrastructure that makes up the distribution system, such as your power lines. They are responsible for maintaining this infrastructure as well as reading your meter and responding to emergencies. If you have an emergency with an outage or an issue with your power lines or poles, you still call your utility.

What is an energy supplier?

In a deregulated energy market, an energy supplier provides the opportunity for consumers and businesses to procure competitively priced energy service.  Energy suppliers acquire their electricity or natural gas supplies from the wholesale market and are licensed to sell it retail to homes and business.

An energy supplier is not your local utility as the utility still operates the local distribution network which carry electricity and natural gas through its territory and to homes or businesses. The energy supplier purchases and supplies energy, the local utility, delivers the energy to your home.

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy, or green energy, is energy generated from natural processes that are continuously replenished and have less of a negative impact on the environment compared to fossil fuels. This includes energy generated from sources such as sunlight, geothermal heat, wind, tides, water, and various forms of biomass, which can supply a significant proportion of the nation’s energy needs.
