You have choices in many important areas of your life – from groceries to gasoline, from cars to cell phones. But did you know that in many states you have a choice about who supplies the energy that powers, heats, and cools your home or business?
You probably are familiar with the local utility companies that deliver your electricity and natural gas – but there are also companies that compete to supply you with this energy. Just like you might choose to purchase the latest smartphone from among a variety of different providers, but have it shipped to you by the U.S. Postal Service, in many places you can choose the company that procures electricity and natural gas on your behalf, and have the utility deliver it to your home or business.
The first step is to learn if choice is available in your state and utility territory. It goes by different names – access, competition, retail choice, restructuring – but the intention is the same: to put the power over your energy decisions in your hands. Check out our Restructuring by State page to learn if choice is available to you.
To learn more about the power of choice, and how to choose, spend some time looking at the resources on our site.
