Hi there, Alec O'Mera at Unitil here to give you a little more information as to what it means to seek out your own third-party supplier.

As a New Hampshire resident and Unitil customer, I can go to the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission and seek out a rate from the variety of third-party suppliers that are there. They have a good listing of what's available. As of today, the 19th of October, 2022, it looks like I could get a rate for about 18 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) for the next 12 months.  

What does that mean?

That means that upon immediately adopting that rate, I would pay more per kWh for electricity than I would right now until December 1st. After December 1st, I would start seeing a savings because the supply rate that Unitil secured will go up and will stay at that rate for eight months. After that eight-month period, Unitil will go out for another supply rate for the period starting August 1, 2023. I would still be on the 12 month supply rate I had secured in October 2022 so it's unclear whether or not I would have a savings at that time or not. 

That's the decision we all have to make on this. It's very difficult to make a good decision without good information. We have created a resource at or visit our third-party suppliers page for links to the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission and Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.
