What’s the difference between a supplier and a utility?
Whether you are looking for electricity, natural gas, green energy or solar power options, we can point you in the right direction. But first, it’s essential to know the difference between your energy supplier and your utility.
- Suppliers: Also called providers, retail energy providers (REPs), or energy service companies (ESCOs). You may see various terms to describe an energy supplier depending on if you live in Texas or another state. Suppliers sell you the energy needed to power your home or business. By buying wholesale energy, suppliers can often offer customers lower rates than local utilities.
- Utilities: Utilities deliver and maintain your home or business’s energy – regardless of whether you’ve bought a plan from a deregulated supplier. Have an outage or other power emergency? Call your utility – not your supplier.
