Understanding Your Energy Supply in Dover, Delaware

The energy market is deregulated in Delaware, which means suppliers compete for business in the market. Deregulation allows suppliers to offer competitive rates, preventing utility companies from holding a monopoly over the market. This system keeps the overall price of energy down. It also gives consumers the chance to choose their supplier and have some control over the price they pay.

While consumers can choose suppliers with low rates, they also rely on utility companies to deliver energy to their homes and businesses. Utilities serve designated service areas, respond to outages and maintain power lines. You can call your utility directly when outages and power issues arise.
