Celebrating National Energy Shopping Day 2024

As the energy landscape continues to evolve, so do the opportunities for consumers to make informed choices about their energy providers. National Energy Shopping Day, celebrated annually, is a moment to highlight the benefits of energy choice and to educate consumers about their options.  

The Power of Choice

National Energy Shopping Day is all about recognizing the power that some consumers have when it comes to selecting their energy suppliers. In many states, energy competition has opened the market, allowing households and businesses to choose from a variety of energy suppliers. This competition fosters innovation, drives down prices, and encourages better services and more sustainable options.

Why Energy Choice Matters

Energy choice isn’t just about finding the lowest price; it’s about selecting the plan that best fits your needs. Whether you’re looking for renewable energy options, fixed-rate plans to protect against market volatility, or specific customer service features, having a choice allows you to tailor your energy consumption to your lifestyle and values.

How to Participate in National Energy Shopping Day

1. Education: Start by visiting the RESA website. Here, you can find resources to understand your energy options, compare different providers, and learn about the benefits of energy choice.

2. Review Your Current Plan: Take a close look at your current energy plan. Are you getting the best rate? Does it align with your energy consumption patterns and sustainability goals? Understanding your current plan is the first step toward making the best choice for your needs.

3. Shop & Compare: Use RESA’s online tools and resources to compare different energy providers. Look for plans that offer competitive rates, renewable energy options, and customer-friendly terms.

4. Ask Questions: Don’t hesitate to reach out to potential energy suppliers with questions. Understanding contract terms, fees and other details is crucial to making an informed decision.

5. Share Your Experience: Once you’ve made your choice, share your experience with friends, family and on social media using the hashtag #NationalEnergyShoppingDay. Your insights can help others navigate their energy choices.
