What’s the difference between a supplier and a utility?
You can use the Choose Energy marketplace no matter what your energy goals are. We can help point you in the direction of electricity, natural gas, green energy, or solar power options. But first, it’s essential to know the difference between your energy supplier and your utility.
- Suppliers: Also called providers, retail energy providers (REPs), or energy service companies (ESCOs). You may see various terms to describe an energy supplier depending on your location. Suppliers sell you the energy that powers your home or business. Suppliers can often offer customers lower rates than local utilities by buying wholesale energy.
- Utilities: Utilities deliver and maintain your home or business’s energy — regardless of your chosen provider. Have an outage or other power emergency? Call your utility — not your supplier.
