Why Can I Choose My Electricity Provider?
Compare Electricity Suppliers
In states with deregulated electricity, you can choose who you buy electricity from and what type of energy you purchase (e.g., environmentally-friendly or standard power). Utility companies are responsible for delivering electricity through all power lines to all consumers, much like phone companies who deliver long distance service.
Consumers can choose to buy power from an alternate electricity provider such as ConEdison Solutions in states that are open to competition. When consumers have a choice when it comes to their electricity supplier, it leads to opportunities to secure a stable fixed price for electricity, choose environmentally-friendly power alternatives, and gain control over energy spending without affecting the reliability of the service.
