The power to choose your energy supplier
A retail energy company, or energy supplier, competes with other suppliers to offer energy supply to a consumer. Before energy choice, consumers could only get energy supply from their utility. With energy choice in effect, consumers no longer have to use their utility as their supplier. It is important to research suppliers, such as Public Power, before committing to a long-term contract. Examine the price per kilowatt-hour, the type of supply rate offered, and the term length to see what works best.
Comparing supply rates made easy
As a retail energy company, Public Power sells energy supply plans to consumers. This process takes place in the energy marketplace where consumers can select a plan that best fits them.
When shopping for a supply plan, consumers will generally find two kinds of rates. Fixed-rate supply plans are set to a specific rate per kilowatt-hour over the length of their contract. Monthly bills may vary, but the supply rate will remain constant. Variable-rate supply plans are determined based on the market value of energy. Monthly bills with a variable-rate supply plan may be different every month, based on the supply rate.
The utility is still responsible
While consumers can now choose a competitive supply rate plan from a supplier, the utility, or energy distributor, still handles power generation and distribution. Utilities own the infrastructure, including wires and meters. If there is ever an emergency or a power outage, consumers should contact their utility, not their retail energy company or supplier, since the utility handles energy distribution and maintenance.
