Handle9: You are comparing apples and oranges with the kwh charges, what is your line charge and what does that equate to as a per/kw rate? Powershop don't do fixed charges so it's all built into the variable rate.
When I changed from Mercury to Powershop my kwh rate went up but my overall bill went down as there are no fixed charges.
Not what we found at all, Mercury is actually cheaper even including the fixed line rate. The kwh chargers through powershop are a lot higher than what we are currently paying.
We were with powershop for over a year and when we first started it was actually a lot cheaper. Then a couple of months back received and email from Powershop saying there kwh charges were going up, they sky rocketed.
So put all my information into powerswitch and found our old provider was cheaper. They were not the cheapest but still cheaper than what Powershop were offereing.
Changed and now our monthly bill is $160-$190, compare this to $220-$260 well worth the change.
