How to Choose an Energy Supplier
Key criteria for evaluating retail energy suppliers


Did you know?

Residents and businesses in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Pennsylvania can choose their natural gas and electricity suppliers. Customers in Delaware can choose their electricity supplier, while customers in Virginia can choose who provides their natural gas. Choosing the right supplier for your home or business can help manage costs and offer peace of mind when it comes to reliable, affordable energy. When evaluating retail energy suppliers, there are a few key criteria you should consider.

First, what contract terms does the supplier offer? Does the length of the contract align with your intended time at the residence or business? Make sure to look at contract terms to understand cancellation fees or costs to switch. You may also want to ask the supplier about their renewal policy.

Another criterion to consider is whether the supplier includes clean energy as part of their service offerings. As more consumers are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, this is becoming increasingly important. Some suppliers will source a portion of their energy from clean, renewable resources, in addition to providing alternative energy solutions such as wind and solar.

Last, and perhaps top of mind for consumers considering a switch, compare the price of electricity and natural gas offered by the supplier with what is currently being charged by your local utility. This can be found on the supplier’s website or by giving them a call to inquire about their current rates. Be sure to ask about special pricing for different contracts such as fixed price and sub accounts.


Choosing an energy supplier can be easy, stress-free and may even result in significant cost savings.  To get started on selecting WGL Energy as your natural gas or electricity supplier, visit our website or call 1-844-4ASK-WGL.
