Smart Budget 36 Reviews & Rates | Order Online

Smart Budget 36 is a 36 month fixed rate electricity plan from Frontier Utilities with rates from 15.3 to 19.8 cents per kWh.

Frontier's Smart Budget 36 is another straightforward, fixed rate electricity plan. It has a flat rate across all usage tiers, which means customers won't have that much bill variation from month to month other than their own usage. This makes it a good plan for people who just want consistent monthly bills and to stick to their budgets, hence the name. Becuase it's a 3 year plan, it's better for homeowners looking for longer term plans and rate stability over time.

The Monthly Recurring Charge is 0.00, and the Early Termination Fee is 200.

Our Review

Frontier's Smart Budget 36 plan is a solid, fixed rate electricity plan with flat rates across the 3 tiers of usage; 500 kWh, 1,000 kWh, and 2,000 kWh. What that means is that customers won't get any special discount or bill credit if they use more or less electricity. For the most part, the only bill fluctiation will be how much energy the customer uses from month to month. That makes it predictable for customers who want to be able to budget their monthly bills, but the other side is that it's not the cheapest plan of this type in the market.
