SFE Energy Company is a Pennsylvania-based retail electricity and natural gas provider that supplies power in several states including New York, Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, and Maryland. The energy company is one of the fastest-growing clean energy suppliers in the US national grid. Here’s everything you need to know about SFE Energy, their rates, energy plans, and pricing.
As a third party supplier, SFE Energy provides electric service in the service area of multiple utility companies, including:
Commonwealth Edison (ComEd): The ComEd service area includes most of Illinois, specifically Chicago, Naperville, and Rockford.
Metropolitan Edison (Met-Ed): The Met-Ed service areas include several Pennsylvania cities such as Montgomery, Berks, and Monroe.
PPL Electric: They cover most of Central and Eastern Pennsylvania.
Ameren Illinois: Their coverage includes Central and Southern Illinois.
You can find all SFE Energy plans for electric customers and customers in every covered state.
SFE Energy offers a wide range of electricity plans in all deregulated coverage states.
The following are two types of energy plans all SFE 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.
SFE Energy offers various features and incentives, including the following:
Door to Door sales staff just a phone call away
Affordable clean energy rates
Increasingly competitive pricing
Multiple convenient payment options
Fixed-rate protection programs
Climate conscious running model
You can make your SFE Energy account to manage your plans online.
The countrywide energy market is massive and has several competitive 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 delivery 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.
