Learn about the electricity utility that serves you

In deregulated states, you don't have to buy power from a utility

For business

What's the difference between a utility and a provider?

In every state, utilities deliver electricity and natural gas to homes and businesses. In regulated states, utilities also generate (or buy) that electricity or natural gas. Public utility commissions approve rates and other charges for residential and business energy users in regulated states.

In most deregulated states, customers have the power to choose between buying electricity or natural gas from a utility or a retail electric provider. In either case, the utility company delivers power to the home or business. The utility also maintains electricity and natural gas lines and other infrastructure. That’s the company you call for an outage or other problem.

While you can change your supplier in deregulated states, you can’t change your utility.
