Types of rates offered by Just Energy

Just Energy offers fixed-rate and variable-rate plans across its service areas. Fixed-rate plans mean you will secure a single, unchanging rate for every kWh you consume during your contract. This is an ideal plan type for consumers who value security and don’t want to be surprised by fluctuations in the wholesale price of electricity. However, keep in mind that fixed-rate plans usually charge an early termination fee (ETF) if you cancel your plan early (unless you’re moving).

Variable-rate plans don’t provide the same level of security. Instead, the rate you pay will change based on the wholesale cost of electricity. During times of low demand, you may see lower energy rates. But when demand spikes, your electric rates will also go up. Variable-rate plans work on a month-to-month basis, so you can switch to another plan at any point without paying a fee.

Enter your ZIP code to compare fixed- and variable-rate plans from Just Energy.

No-deposit options from Just Energy

Many energy providers require consumers to pay a deposit before they will begin service. Customers with a high credit score might be allowed to bypass a deposit in some cases.

However, some electricity providers also offer no-deposit energy plans for customers who wish to bypass the credit check and deposit entirely. Many no-deposit plans are prepaid, meaning you will pay for your electricity upfront. Currently, Just Energy doesn’t advertise any no-deposit plans, but you can compare other options on the American Energy Choice marketplace.

Green energy with Just Energy

Every Just Energy electric plan either includes 100% green energy or offers you the option to offset some or all of your electricity consumption with renewable energy credits for an additional monthly fee. These credits support electricity generated from renewable sources, including solar, wind, or hydropower. You can choose this option when you select your plan.

Moving or transferring service with Just Energy

If you are moving to a new address, you won’t have to pay an ETF if you decide to cancel your current energy plan. When you move, you can choose a new provider in your area. If you’d like to transfer your Just Energy service to your new address, contact Just Energy to set up the transition.

Renting with Just Energy

Just Energy’s plans aren’t only for homeowners. Renters can find several different options to suit their needs. Popular options include variable-rate plans that you can cancel anytime and shorter, fixed-rate plans that can fit with the length of your lease.

Cancellation fees

For fixed-rate Just Energy plans, there are ETFs if you cancel your plan without moving before your contract is over. These fees amount to $175 for early cancellation.

Satisfaction guarantee

Just Energy offers a satisfaction guarantee for its customers. When you sign up for a Just Energy electricity plan, you can switch to a different plan within 30 days of the service start date without a fee.

Tips for best electricity plans

Finding and switching plans on the American Energy Choice marketplace is easy. Once you find your provider, they’ll handle the entire process of switching. Here are a few things to remember as you start exploring the process.

A few things to remember

Understand your EFL. Before choosing a plan, read the Electricity Facts Label (EFL). This contains information on:

  • Rate per kWh based on the amount of electricity you use
  • The percent of the plan’s renewable energy sourcing
  • ETFs

Set up your new plan. Once you’ve reviewed the Just Energy electric rates, chosen a plan, and confirmed your order, Just Energy will complete the setup process with your utility or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP). You won’t experience any disruption of service when you’re changing suppliers

Learn about your electricity bill. Although Just Energy will be supplying your electricity, your utility or TDSP will deliver it to your home, along with maintaining the power lines and restoring outages. On your monthly bill, your utility fees will be listed as TDU or TDSP charges. These are separate from your Just Energy usage fees.
