Choose A Supplier
Eversource customers have the option of choosing a competitive energy supplier.
Your monthly bill is broken into two main charges:
- Supply: The cost of electricity itself. Eversource or a supplier pays to purchase this energy on your behalf from a pool of multiple energy producers at the current market price. This price can go up and down.
- Delivery: The cost of delivering electricity. This is what we charge to bring energy to your home or business and maintain a safe and reliable system.
You can shop the competitive market and compare rates against Eversource's energy supply rate (Default Service Energy charge). This may offer an opportunity to manage your own energy supply costs.
You should be sure to evaluate factors such as the length and terms of a contract with a supplier, cancellation fees or other related information.
Eversource will still deliver power to your home or business, read your meter, care for the poles and wires, provide customer service, and restore power when there is a service interruption.
Also, Eversource will never go door-to-door to discuss your Eversource bill or energy supply options. Our employees always carry identification, and you can always call us to see if we have sent someone to your home.
If you no longer wish to be contacted by suppliers you can register with the Federal Trade Commission's Do Not Call list.
The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commissions licenses competitive suppliers within the state and maintains a list of registered suppliers. This website also provides information to help you shop for a supplier that's right for you. You can also call 800-528-2070 if you have questions about a supplier.
Important Questions To Ask
When considering an offer from a supplier, here are some important questions you should ask before making a decision.
- What is the length of the contract?
- Is this a fixed or variable rate?
- Do early termination fees apply?
- Can I switch to another supplier?
- Who do I contact if I have questions?
- Are you licensed in the state, and what if I discontinue service in the region?
Changes to Your Bill
If you choose a supplier that has a written agreement with Eversource, you will continue to receive a single monthly bill from Eversource. Details of the supplier’s charges will appear in the Supplier Services section each month.
However, if you choose a supplier without a written agreement, you will receive an additional bill each month - one from the independent supplier for their Supplier Services charge and one from Eversource.
