Energy Choice Means You Decide Who Supplies Your Energy
Before competition was introduced, homes and businesses purchased their energy supply with the local utility company. In 1977, lawmakers in 17 states began changing regulations to allow energy suppliers to offer natural gas and electricity, 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.
The change means that consumers can act as their own energy experts, looking for the best pricing and potentially lowering energy costs as a result. 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 experience improved customer service when you choose a new energy supplier.
