  • What is competitive energy?

    In the past, there was only one utility company and that company determined what price consumers should pay for the energy they used. Now, the electric and natural gas industries in America are undergoing significant restructuring in order to break up the monopolies.


    In competitive energy markets you now have the ability to choose your energy provider, rate type and many other options. If done correctly can mean savings up to 55% on your utility bills.

  • What has changed with competition?

    In competitive energy markets your bill is cut up into two major areas.

    1. The Energy Supply. This is the actual electric or natural gas that your business uses and this is the area open to competition. In most markets you can now choose from up to 60 different providers to buy your electric and natural gas from.
    2. The transmissions and delivery of your energy. The delivery of your electric and natural gas is still managed by your local utility and regulated by your state public utility board. The rate that you pay for delivery will be the same regardless of who you choose to buy your electric from.
