Thinking about choosing a competitive energy supplier? When you choose a new competitive energy supplier, you are choosing the company that will provide the electricity you use in your home or business. Before you start to shop for a new competitive energy supplier, look at your bills to determine what portion is for delivery and what portion is for the electricity you use. Write down the kilowatt hour price for energy shown on your bill. This is the number you will use to compare offers from competitive energy suppliers.
Ask questions when talking to competitive energy suppliers. Things to consider include:
If you currently receive an Electric Assistance Program (EAP) benefit and you switch to a competitive energy supplier, you will lose the EAP benefit on the energy supply portion of your bill. The amount you save from choosing a competitive energy supplier may be offset by the partial loss of the EAP benefit, so look carefully at your bill to determine what your savings will be before you make a choice.

Remember, regardless of who you buy your electricity from, you will continue to call your electric utility for outages, emergency services and questions about your service.
