How is my electricity rate determined?

If you are currently using less than 250,000 kWh of electricity per year, or are otherwise considered to be a "designated" consumer, then you are eligible for the Regulated Price Plan ("RPP"). Under the RPP, customers pay for electricity under a tiered pricing structure that may vary every 6 months. If you are not eligible for the RPP, then you are paying the cost of electricity, calculated on a monthly basis as determined by the Independent Electricity System Operator.

Why do I see a "TDU Surcharge" On My Bill?

The TDU Surcharge is a delivery charge that your local transmission and distribution utility (TDU) bills for delivering power to your home reliably. These charges are authorized by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT).

Will my bill come directly from Just Energy?

In most cases, Just Energy does not bill separately from your utility for electricity or natural gas. Just Energy's charges will appear as a separate line item on your utility bill. Only customers in Texas, Georgia, California, and Alberta receive their bill directly from Just Energy.

Is Just Energy charging me for my supply only?

Your contract with Just Energy covers your electricity and/or natural gas supply costs and JustGreen if you choose to enroll. If you choose to enroll in additional contracts, such as an ecobee payment plan, you may see these charges on your bill as well.

If your electricity and/or natural gas bill does not come directly from Just Energy, but from your local utility provider, you’ll receive a separate bill for your additional product contract from Just Energy.

It depends on your plan. Some contracts may include supply only. With other products, the cost of JustGreen will be included in your commodity price. You will continue to remain responsible for the following utility charges: regulated delivery, transmission, transportation and supplemental gas.

If you are a natural gas customer, in addition to your natural gas supply, Just Energy also charges you a variable transportation charge. Depending on the program you are on, additional Just Energy charges for JustGreen and other administrative charges may also apply. If you are an electricity customer, depending on the program you are on, additional charges for JustGreen and administration may apply. Refer to your Terms and Conditions for complete details.

There is no switching fee, however, your Just Energy rate for supply will not include the related charges, taxes and other amounts charged by your utility. These may include charges relating to transmission, delivery, uplift, congestion, and service charges.

Whether Just Energy provides your natural gas supply or not, you will still be responsible to the utility for taxes, delivery, transportation, mid-stream cost recovery and other costs billed by your utility.

All natural gas customers, regardless of if they are with a retailer or the utility will be subject to the following utility charges: taxes, transmission, delivery debt retirement, uplift, congestion, storage and other service related charges. All electricity customers, regardless of if they are with a retailer or the utility will be subject to the following utility charges: regulated delivery, regulatory, debt retirement and other service related charges.
