spurwink|ri has also collaborated with First Point Power (an electricity supplier that offers discounted service to businesses and residential customers). Each consumer that has switched from National Grid to First Point Power has saved an average of 11% on electrical expenses. Each individual that signs up for First Point Power through the spurwink|ri website is considered a spurwink|ri member.
Each month, spurwink|ri receives a monthly commission based on the total kilowatt-hour usage of all its members who have signed up.
First Point Power’s service is very simple and does not require any signup fees or contracts. Online enrollment only requires the customer’s contact information and National Grid account number. National Grid includes First Point Power’s charges on their bill so customers will not need to worry about paying two bills for electricity service.
Why are we able to bring this service to our supporters? The energy market in Rhode Island is deregulated. Deregulation allows competitive suppliers like First Point to offer electricity at rates below what the utility charges.
The delivery of power is not deregulated. National Grid will continue to deliver your power, maintain power lines, and respond to service calls/outages. Switching to First Point will not cause any disruption in service. First Point will only be selling the actual power used (the electricity commodity itself).
First Point Power is licensed with FERC and the Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission as a competitive energy supplier. The company is located in North Kingstown and serves Rhode Island. As a member of the New England Power Pool, they purchase power in the wholesale market and pass on the savings to their customers.
First Point was started in 2009 and has been serving customers in Rhode Island since April 2010. They are now serving over two million-kilowatt hours annually to hundreds of customers. Their rates have saved customers over 11% on their electricity charges.
