What is the difference between an energy supplier and my utility company?
The utility owns and operates the way electricity is transmitted and distributed to consumers’ homes and businesses. When you lose power at your home or business and you have questions, you should contact your local utility.
The energy supplier or provider closely monitor electricity prices and purchase electricity for its customers based on current market prices. Suppliers then sell this power to consumers to help save money on the generation and transmission service portion of our local utility bill. This is also how consumers are able to choose renewable sources such as wind power.
