Energy Choice FAQ
What IS NATURAL GAS?
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has overseen the deregulation of the natural gas industry to allow nearly 11 million customers in the three major utility areas (PG&E, SoCal Gas and SDG&E) to choose their natural gas supplier.
Generally speaking, the typical energy bill consists of Supply (the actual commodity – electricity or gas), and the Delivery (the pipes and wires that get the energy to your home or business).
Under deregulation, utilities can no longer own or profit from supply. They must buy the commodity from independent producers. Consumers have the same opportunity, and competing companies keep prices in check. The utilities remain in the Delivery business only.
In California, those independent supply companies are called Core Transport Agents (CTA). Greenwave Energy is one of them.
WILL MY SERVICE CHANGE?
No. The switching process is seamless and the flow of gas never stops. Only the price that you pay and the billing arrangements may change. Your utility remains regulated by the CPUC and serves as your backup supplier.
WHO HANDLES EMERGENCIES?
The utility maintains the infrastructure that allows the delivery of the gas to your home or business. If you detect a natural gas leak or have some type of natural gas emergency, immediately call your natural gas utility, not Greenwave Energy.
