    Who provides my power?

    The only difference you’ll see in your energy service with a deregulated plan is how much you’re paying for it. Even with a deregulated energy plan, your local utility will continue to deliver reliable electricity or natural gas to your home or business.

    Switching is easy – once you sign up with a deregulated supplier through the Choose Energy marketplace, your work is done. Your new supplier will communicate directly with your utility to ensure that there are no interruptions to your power service. If you do experience an outage or other problem, call your utility immediately.
