So I've dug into this a little moar, for our residential usage of ~700kWH, savings with the one alternate provider will allegedly be maybe $7/month. Some providers offer a fixed lower rate , but hit you with a cancellation fee, others have no cancellation fee, but the rate could theoretically float up and beyond the PECO rate. So yet another thing to monitor...grrr. Also learned this interesting tidbit: PECO has higher rates June-August (peak AC time) ....
