You have the power to switch your electric supplier - the company that generates your electricity. This is just one part of the three parts of your electric service:
- Generation: The production of electricity.
- Transmission: The movement of electricity from where it is generated to the point of distribution.
- Distribution: The delivery of electricity to your home or business.
When you shop for an electric supplier, you are choosing the company that generates your electricity. Generation supply costs make up most of an average electric bill, so savings may be significant. For most electric customers who select a new supplier, transmission costs will also be included in the charges from your new supplier. The electric utility that distributes your electricity will remain the same.
