    Direct Energy Details

    Direct Energy's Electricity Prices and Usage

    On average, Direct Energy's patrons pay an electricity rate of 11.94 cents per kilowatt hour, which is 10.46% below the nationwide average of 13.33. Encouragingly, the company has seen a drop in CO2 emissions of 3.49% within the preceding 12 months. Electricity production is not handled in house at the company, as they purchase power at wholesale rates from other providers and then resell to their customers. Direct Energy's electricity sales endeavors are responsible for 38,525,987,894.04 kilograms of CO2 pollution. This is the 13th highest emissions amount out of 3530 electricity companies in the United States.

    Net Metering

    Regrettably, Direct Energy does not offer net metering options to consumers. Installation of solar panels and alternative electricity sources is often too expensive for individuals. Net metering would allow purchasers of these electricity sources to sell excess wattage back to the electricity supplier, making the installation of these alternative sources financially possible .

    Energy Loss

    Electricity providers routinely submit reports on energy lost through electricity transmission to government agencies who track electricity grid efficiencies. Direct Energy recently reported a loss of 6.21% of the electricity generation. These averages enable us to compare the numerous suppliers who operate throughout the United States. Direct Energy has received a ranking of 784th worst out of 3530 suppliers who report energy loss in the United States.
