How It Works

Energy deregulation allows customers like you to choose who supplies your energy. Just like you shop around for telephone service or Internet, you can now choose your energy supplier based on your preferences.  With a market that is now open for competition, independent companies compete for your business, which means better options for you.

Switching is simple and safe

You will still get one bill from the utility just like you always have.  The utility will still provide delivery, service and maintenance, so there is no risk or change to the power lines or equipment in your home.  Plus, you can feel better knowing you’ve made a good choice for your family. Click here to learn more about how you can choose a plan that is best for you.

Enrollment is fast and easy

Enrollment only takes a few minutes of your time.  All you need is your basic contact and utility account information.  You'll notice FairPoint Energy's name and affordable rate on your bill in one or two billing cycles.  Go to the enrollment page to see our rates and get started.

Affordable, Reliable, Renewable

Thanks to deregulation, suppliers like us can provide better energy options to your customers. With FairPoint Energy, you can choose from rate plans that will help you save money or do something better for the environment. The utility will still provide delivery and maintenance, plus you'll be able to stay with a company you know and trust for the supply portion of your bill.

Look at current offers in your area

*The 5% cash back offer (“Reward”) applies only to new Maine and New Hampshire FairPoint Energy residential customers who are not currently enrolled with FairPoint Energy but who are now enrolling in a 12 month fixed rate product. The Reward is only good for one 12 month term and will not carry over if a customer renews for another fixed rate term. The Reward is calculated only on the supply portion of the total energy bill excluding any taxes and fees. The Reward will be paid in the form of a check, which will be mailed to you 8-12 weeks after the end of your term. To be eligible to receive the Reward, customers must not have a balance on their account and have accrued a minimum of $10 at the time the calculation is done. If customers have not accrued at least $10 they will not receive a check and will forfeit any money that was accrued. The Reward is not a savings guarantee and is not available to budget billing customers.
