How Are Utilities Like National Grid and Suppliers Different?
As an energy utility, National Grid maintains power lines and distributes energy to consumers in their specified service area. Your utility is also your point of contact for outages and other power issues in your area. Your supplier or Energy Supply Company (ESCO) provides the energy that National Grid distributes, and it determines the rate you pay.
In the state’s deregulated energy market, suppliers are constantly purchasing energy to keep up with supply and demand. With the energy market fluctuating regularly, ESCO rates are changing all the time. Even if your supplier had a low rate last year, that might not be the case when it comes time for your renewal. To keep up with the market and maintain a low rate, you need to compare suppliers.
