You may receive one bill from the new supplier, or you may receive separate bills – one from the electric or gas supplier and one from the local utility company that delivers electricity or gas to you.
There are three steps to getting electricity: generation (production of electricity), transmission (sending high voltage power to distribution points), and distribution (delivering power to your business or home).
The natural gas and electricity utilities are responsible for the maintenance of the electricity lines and natural gas piping up to and including their meters. Nothing in the way of installation, maintenance, or service will change. Switching to a supplier will not affect the reliability of your electric or natural gas service. In the case of an emergency to any of the above, you will still need to contact your local utility.
