Retail Energy Contracts
Buying electricity from an energy retailer that is not affiliated with ENWIN is one option for consumers.
Electricity retailers purchase large "blocks" of wholesale electricity from power generating companies, and then sell it to consumers.
The price offered is typically guaranteed for a specified number of years, although in some cases the price could change during the contract period.
If you are asked to sign or renew a gas or electricity contract for your home or small business, it's important to know who you're dealing with. Energy company salespeople must wear an ID badge and give you a business card.
