An easy way to understand energy choice is to take a look at your natural gas bill. You’ll see that it is made up of two main parts: distribution, or delivery charges, and supply charges. The distribution of your natural gas through pipelines is a service is provided by your local utility company. However, the supply portion of your bill, usually shown as the price per Mcf of Ccf, is the part you have control over and is open to competition.
