How to Save
**YOU WILL NOT BE SWITCHING YOUR UTILITY PROVIDER – THAT DOESN’T EVER CHANGE – YOUR SAVINGS COMES FROM SHOPPING FOR A DIFFERENT ENERGY SUPPLIER – WHICH IS A LINE ITEM ON YOUR CURRENT ENERGY BILL FROM YOUR CURRENT UTILITY….BUT IT MAKES UP OVER HALF OF YOUR BILL’S CHARGES.
First things first, let’s look at your monthly bill. You’ll see it has two main costs, both of which can vary month to month. First is the supply portion, which represents the actual energy used to power your home or business. Second is the delivery or distribution portion, which accounts for getting that energy from the supplier to your refrigerator, air conditioner, and everything else you power.
Until a few years ago, you didn’t have any control over your utility bills. Your local utility produced and/or bought your energy and transported it to your home or business. The state government set a price the utility could charge for its services, and that rate was reflected on your bill. Sometimes this worked well, but sometimes, it meant you didn’t always get the cheapest or greenest energy.
In the 1990s, by changing a few key laws, the federal government gave consumers energy choice in some states. Under this new system, the government regulates utilities and the energy they deliver, but opened the door to suppliers who can offer the most competitive rates. This way, consumers have a say in the priciest part of their energy bill— the energy supply — and still enjoy the same, reliable service.
How Do I Save?
Switching to a competitive energy supplier (WITHOUT LEAVING YOUR CURRENT UTILITY PROVIDER) is a quick and easy way to take control of your energy bills. When you shop around, you have choices about the rate, length of plan and where the energy comes from. Almost half of U.S. states have embraced energy choice—whether for natural gas, electricity, or both—and thousands of companies switch energy suppliers every day.
Benefits of Switching your Electric or Gas Supplier:
NO FEES TO SWITCH
There are no fees to switch electric and natural gas suppliers. You simply enroll with the supplier of your choice. If you have previously switched suppliers, you may want to confirm that they do not have a cancellation fee before switching again.
LOWER YOUR ELECTRIC AND NATURAL GAS BILL
By switching electric and gas suppliers, you can take advantage of competitive rates that may offer you significant savings versus your current utility’s supply rate.

Your local utility company will continue to send you one bill reflecting the change in suppliers and the lower rate you are paying for electricity and/or natural gas.
CONTINUE TO KEEP YOUR UTILITY
When you switch suppliers, your local utility does not change. Your local utility company will continue to handle any service needs, billing questions, etc. Also, if your supplier were to ever go out of business you would default right back to the local utility and experience no interruption in service.
