Understanding deregulation in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is one of the states in the U.S. in which residents have the choice of an electricity or natural gas service provider. Giving consumers the freedom to buy energy from a number of electricity and natural gas providers keeps competition among suppliers up, which is designed to keep prices down. Pennsylvania’s deregulation policy keeps the consumer in control.

As of June 2020, nearly 30 percent of Pennsylvania customers had switched electric generation suppliers. So, where do you start?

What is the difference between a utility and a supplier?

One of the most common questions among energy consumers is: What’s the difference between an energy supplier and a utility company? Understanding what each is, and how they work together, can help you feel a little more confident about your choice of energy supplier. 

Let’s break down the difference:

Utility vs. Supplier

In short, utility companies generate or buy and deliver natural gas or electricity to your home (or business) through their own maintained lines. So when your service goes out, your utility is who you call. It’s the company that sends you your monthly bill, in other words. 

In regulated states, you must buy your natural gas or electricity from the same company that delivers it. But not in Pennsylvania. You have your choice of suppliers – regardless of whether you sign up for your electricity or natural gas from, the utility companies deliver it.
