Q: What is an electric supplier?
A: An electric supplier has many names, depending on the state. In Pennsylvania we are called an Electric Generation Supplier (EGS), in New Jersey a Third-Party Supplier (TPS), and in New York an Electric Services Company (ESCO). No matter the term used, a competitive or retail electric supplier is the company that provides your electric generation service – the actual electricity supply that powers your home or business. With electric choice, consumers can choose their electric supplier. The power is then delivered by the consumer’s electric distribution company

Q: Is there a cost to switch providers?
A: Penalties depends on the agreement you have with your current supplier. Review your current agreement to see if there are any early cancellation penalties. Call your current supplier if you are unsure, they should be able to answer any questions.

Q: What are the penalties for switching suppliers?
A: Penalties depends on the agreement you have with your current supplier. Review your current agreement to see if there are any early cancellation penalties. Call your current supplier if you are unsure, they should be able to answer any questions.

Q: How long will it take to switch to a new supplier?
A: The effective start date of your choice depends on your next meter read date. This can take anywhere between three to eight weeks.

Q: If I choose a new electric supplier, will I receive two electric bills?
A: In most cases, you should be able to receive one monthly bill from your electric utility. There are some suppliers who may want to bill you separately though. If this happens, you will receive two bills – one from your electric utility and one from your supplier.

Q: If I switch to a new electric supplier, what part of my service will change?
A: When you shop for an electric supplier, you are choosing the company that generates your electricity. Typically, when you select a new supplier, transmission costs will be included in the charges from your new supplier. The electric utility that distributes your electricity will remain the same.

Q: How do I know a different supplier will provide reliable service?
A: The quality and reliability of your electric service will not change if you choose a new electric supplier. Your current electric utility will continue to provide the same transmission and distribution service.

Q: How do I actually make the switch?
A: Making the switch is very simple. Once you’ve decided which provider is right for you, call them to sign up. Some may even offer enrollment on their website. They will send you terms and conditions and an enrollment agreement, which make up your new service contract. Review it carefully – and make sure you understand your “Right of Rescission” – the number of day’s you have to cancel your agreement without penalty.

Q: If I switch providers, will there be an interruption in my service?
A: Switching providers will in no way interrupt your electricity service. The only thing that changes is the company selling you power, not the company maintaining the poles and wires that deliver your electricity. The dependability of your service will not be affected by your choice of supplier. If a power outage does occur for some reason, your service will be restored just as before regardless of your supplier.

Q: Who should I call about outages and repairs?
A: Please call your electric utility about power outages and repairs.

Q: Who do I contact if I have billing questions?
A: If you have questions about the generation supply portion of your bill, contact your electric supplier. If you have questions about the delivery or distribution part of your bill, contact your local utility.
