Generation Companies

The entities responsible for generating electricity or processing natural gas.

Retail Provider

Your retail supplier buys natural gas and electric power from wholesale markets. XOOM Energy is strategically aligned with one of the world's largest energy wholesalers, enabling us to buy energy on a competitive basis. We make all the arrangements for this energy to be delivered to your local utility using the most economical transport paths available. Whether it's across the country or across town, we handle all the details to make sure the energy shows up.

Utility Companies

Your local utility delivers your energy to your home or business, just as they always have. The means of distribution is the same, even if you are buying your energy from a retail supplier, like XOOM Energy. We've integrated our system with the local utility to make this a seamless, hassle-free operation. Bottom line, you enjoy uninterrupted energy service with the added benefit of being able to choose the products and plans you want.
