Why should I shop for electricity?
Just like you shop for any service for your business, you can shop for your electricity to find the best deal and the best service for your needs. Remember, saving just one cent per kWh could translate into more than $100 a year in savings, depending on usage. Competitive offers may not be available in all areas.
No cost to switch
There is no cost either upfront or prorated to switch your electricity. You start saving immediately.
If we switch, where will our electricity come from?
Your electricity still comes from the same power plant(s) and over the same distribution network (wires). The only thing that changes is your retail service provider (billing company). The same organizations respond to problems or power outages or turn the power on or off. Electrical line maintenance and repair work is ordered by the state with no consideration of who the billing company is.
If I choose a new electric supplier, what part of my service will change?
There are three parts to your electric service: generation, distribution and transmission. Generation is the production of electricity. Transmission is the movement of that electricity from where it is produced to a local distribution system. Distribution is the delivery of electricity to your home or business.
When you shop for an electric supplier, you are choosing the company that generates your electricity. For most electric customers who select a new supplier, transmission costs will also be included in the charges from your new supplier. The electric utility that distributes your electricity will remain the same.
