What Is Energy Choice?
Energy Choice Means You Decide Who Supplies Your Energy
Before competition was introduced, homes and businesses purchased their energy supply from the local utility company. In 1977, lawmakers in 17 states began changing regulations to allow energy suppliers to offer natural gas and electricity directly to consumers, usually at lower rates than those of the local utility company. For the first time, consumers had the freedom to choose their own energy supply and energy supplier.
This change means that you are able to search for the best price and potentially lower your energy costs; allowing you to act as your own energy expert. Energy Choice allows you to pursue pricing options and plans that may be lower and more strategic than what your utility currently offers. You may also find better customer service when you choose a new energy supplier.
