What is the Residential Energy Program?
The Home Essentials Residential Energy program provides consumers with a choice and access to competitive supply offers in select deregulated markets.
Features & Benefits
The restructuring of energy markets in recent years has broken up the utility monopoly and opened up competition
Consumers now have options when choosing a competitive supply offer
Competitive suppliers provide a variety of terms and pricing options
How it works
Before deregulation occurred, both natural gas and electricity were supplied by regional monopolies or local utilities that owned both the power plants and transmission lines for distribution. With deregulation, competitive suppliers are now able to provide a variety of options for terms and rates. The great thing is—virtually nothing changes for you. There will be no interruption of service, the utility company still services and bills the account. In some markets the supplier may bill for the supply portion separately; in other markets it is included in the bill provided by the utility company. The only change is that the supply of energy to the utility company comes from a competitive supplier.
When you choose a competitive supplier, the switch process begins with your enrollment form. Once you complete the form, the Energy Service Company (ESCO) that made the offer will notify your utility company of your choice. You’ll continue to be serviced directly from the local utility company you’ve been using with no service interruptions.
