Energy Choice

energy_pie_chart01

Virginia Energy Choice is the Commonwealth’s effort to introduce Virginians to the new way they could be purchasing  their electric energy supply. Currently, for those consumers using less than 5 megawatts of power, one utility company has the exclusive right to provide all components of electric service – generation/supply, transmission and distribution – within a specific geographic area in Virginia.

For members using over 5 megawatts of electricity, many different companies ( “Competitive Service Providers” or “CSPs”) may compete to be a consumer’s energy provider, thus allowing these members to shop for energy supply service. Please click on the above link for more information.
