Research 3rd Party supplier options

Often times, customers can enter into a contract longer than the regulated standard of six months for their energy. This could provide a more stable supply price over the period of the agreement. Make sure to understand all aspects of an agreement.

Supply prices and how they are determined:

Supply rates are the market cost of the energy (electricity or natural gas) that is delivered to you. Distribution utilities like Unitil do not produce electricity or natural gas. Instead, we are required to go out to bid for the current market rate every six months. This supply rate becomes part of customer bills and is entirely separate from the rates that pay for distribution costs.

Unitil does not make any money off of supply as there is no mark-up on this rate. Instead, this is a simple pass-through to customers based on the actual, seasonal costs of energy. Most Unitil customers have the option to find an alternative supply rate through third-party providers.
