  • Will my bill look different if I choose Direct Energy?

    In most areas, when you select Direct Energy as your supplier in Delaware, you will continue to receive one bill from your utility company each month. You can see the breakdown between Direct Energy's charge for electric generation or gas supply and your utility charges for distribution service, any other services it provides, and taxes. If you are not signed up with a licensed electric or natural gas supplier, your utility bill will not separate the supply and transmission charges.

    Please be advised that not all utility companies use the same terminology. For example depending upon where you live, "supply" = "generation" and "delivery" = "distribution." For clarification on the terminology you see upon your monthly utility bill, please contact your local utility company.
