Competition Brings Changes

There are three basic changes as a result of competition. First, electricity is being split into separate services. Before retail competition, the utility generated or bought the electricity and delivered it to you. Now, under Electric Choice, you choose the supplier who provides the electricity and the utility company delivers the electricity to you. The image below illustrates the separation of services resulting from competition.
