Who is Our Energy?

What is the difference between a Retail Electricity Provider (REP) and a utility company (TDSP)?

With electricity market deregulation, you have a choice of who is your retail electric provider. Retail electric providers provide you with an energy price, electric bill and customer service. The local utility company (TDSP) maintains the poles and wires in your community. Because of electricity market deregulation, Customers have a choice in retail electric providers. So, when you switch retail electric providers for the same residence or business location, you should experience no change in the reliability of your service. Your local utility company (TDSP) will continue to read your meter and will continue to maintain the poles and wires. And you will continue to call your local utility company (TDSP) in the event of an outage. If you change locations within the state, your local utility company (TDSP) may change.
