Ho-Ho-Ho or Bah Humbug: What will you say when your energy bill arrives?
Now that November has begun, we all know what’s right around the corner! Whether you choose to be more of a “Scrooge” when the holidays come around, or a “Jolly Old Saint Nick,” there’s one aspect about the holiday season you can’t control: The weather.
According to our friends at Precision Weather Service, we can expect an early start to winter weather as we head through November into December. And you know that snow you dread shoveling off your car each morning? There will most likely be a lot of it.
So what does this mean for your energy bills?
Simply due to supply and demand, we can all assume that our energy bills may rise as a result of increased energy consumption during the colder months. In addition, we’re also faced with the unpredictability of the energy market and where prices may go. If you’re a customer of a traditional utility company, you have no option but to pay the higher price—with a Scrooge-like grimace for sure.
However, if you switched to an ESCO like BlueRock Energy, you’d have the ability to choose a fixed energy price instead of the variable price, which would allow you to lock into a specific price for your natural gas and/or electricity consumption over a 12-month period. Locking into a set price plan would protect you from the energy market changes that can dramatically increase during peak times of demand, such as a colder than normal winter.
So, what can you do next?
With winter weather quickly approaching, now is the ideal time to lock into a fixed energy price before potential rate spikes hit. By locking into a fixed energy plan and being mindful of your energy consumption, you have more control over your monthly energy bills, and can avoid the sticker-shock that may come with one of those bitter cold winter months. Let’s just say, even the “Scrooges” will feel a little ‘Jolly’ when their energy bills arrive.
