Gas and electric resale is a multi-billion business with hundreds of companies across North America
Industry was created when structural separation was mandated for gas and electric distribution
Gas and electric resellers purchase energy directly from gas fields, power generations or energy futures markets and then resale power to residential and commercial customers over infrastructure provided by utilities
They make money on the arbitrage between wholesale and retail price
Utilities do the billing on behalf of the resellers – but price and terms are established between the reseller and customer
Most gas and electric resellers over a variety of marketing bundles including appliances, home renovation, free long distance etc
So why not FTTh?
