What is energy choice? If you look at your energy bill, you’ll see that it is made up of two main parts: distribution charges and generation, or supply, charges. Your local utility is in charge of delivering your electricity through the power lines into your home; these are the distribution and generation charges. You generally have little control over this part of your bill, however, you do have control over the supply portion of your bill. This charge is usually shown as the price per kilowatt-hour and you have many options for which supplier and plan works for you. What is the Maryland Public Service Commission? The Maryland Public Service Commission (MPSC) facilitates your competitive energy supplier choices by authorizing licenses for electricity suppliers and hosting Maryland Electric Choice, a tool that consumers can use to compare electric options.
