CleanChoice Energy Company is a retail electricity provider (REP) based in Washington, DC, that provides renewable and clean energy via wind power in several states including New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. The renewable energy company is one of the top clean energy suppliers in the US. Here’s everything you need to know about CleanChoice Energy, along with their rates, energy plans, and pricing.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, CleanChoice Energy provides clean power generated by wind, geothermal, and solar power in the service area of various utility companies in and outside the District of Columbia. Some of these include:
Consolidated Edison of New York: Their service areas include the greater NYC region, Yonkers, and Albany.

You can find all CleanChoice Energy plans for electric customers and customers in every covered state.
CleanChoice Energy offers a wide range of electricity plans.
The following are two types of energy plans all CleanChoice Energy customers can choose from:
Fixed-Rate Plans: Fixed-rate plans let you pay the same amount throughout your electric plan. The plan length can be for 6, 12, or 24-months. We recommend fixed-rate plans because they provide price certainty and minimize risk. But be careful: when your term expires, your rate becomes variable and can go up without notice. Arbor automatically keeps you on the best fixed-rate plan, so you don’t have to worry about rate hikes on your utility bills at the end of your term.
Variable-Rate Plans: Such plans are dependent on the retail energy market prices and can vary daily or monthly. Variable-rate plans are not as stable as fixed-rate plans and can prove expensive in the long term.
Some plans may ask you for a deposit. However, plans available through Arbor never require a deposit.
While you can find most of the plan information on the energy company’s website, it’s best to read the plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL). It contains additional information on each plan, including the following:
Price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) depending on energy usage
Early termination fees
Percentage of renewable energy sourcing
You can switch to different energy plans without any hassle. Other charges on your electricity bill include your local TDSP or TDU charges. TDU (utility company) charges include the cost of delivering electricity, maintaining solar panels and power lines, as well as handling power outages.
CleanChoice Energy offers various features and incentives, including the following:
Low upfront costs
Comparatively lower costs per energy use

You can make your CleanChoice Energy account to manage your plans online.
The East Coast energy market is massive and has several clean electricity providers. Choosing any single energy provider depends on what energy plans and rates are available.
All electric companies offer various energy plans with different rates, and it can be hard to choose any single plan. You can search and try to shop for rates yourself, but watch out for the fine print, hidden fees, and escalating rates once your term ends.
You can use Arbor’s free TrueRate Protection service to automatically find and switch to the best electricity rates in your area.
Arbor scans the market and gives you the best rates you can get in your service area. When your contract term is expiring, Arbor finds the best rate and switches you again. You always pay the best rate and never have to worry about overpaying for electricity ever again.
