What's the Difference Between a Utility and a Supplier?
DP&L or AES Ohio is a utility — a company that distributes energy to a specified region of a state. Your utility maintains powerlines, ensures power reaches its customers and responds to outages in its territory. If you live in the AES Ohio service area, they’ll always be your utility.
On the other hand, your supplier is a company that provides energy for your utility to distribute. Your supplier determines the rate you pay for your power. You can choose the company that supplies your energy thanks to the deregulated market in Ohio. This system encourages competition among suppliers and gives you some say in what you pay for electricity.
Ohio energy laws require DP&L and other utilities to provide a Price to Compare (PTC) on their bills. This number changes throughout the year. It is best to take the average rate over 12 months to use for comparing. You’ll pay this rate if you don’t have a supplier, and you can use it as a baseline when comparing provider rates in your area.
