What is deregulation?

Deregulating means removing restrictions that prohibited some suppliers from servicing an area. In the past, only a few natural gas companies were available to customers, resulting in them having no ability to choose a provider. This lack of choice could also lead to higher natural gas prices since suppliers did not have an incentive to be more competitive.

Deregulation removed that prohibition, allowing more energy suppliers into the area. It means you have the power of choice and can save money on your PA gas rates. On this front, allow Choose Energy to help you. We are an online energy marketplace that compares rates in your area to help you find the best plan for your needs.

What is the difference between a natural gas utility and a supplier?

As you shop for service, you might come across natural gas utility companies and suppliers. Suppliers provide the natural gas to homes and businesses within its service area. To accomplish this, they use the pipes and other infrastructure provided by the utility companies. Further, a natural gas supplier will market its services and prices to those living in the area. 

Meanwhile, utilities can supply natural gas, but they also manage the infrastructure of natural gas deployment. That can include making repairs to damaged pipes, responding to gas leak calls, and more.
