You can chose who sells you your power, but one entity provides the power grid. Otherwise, there would be dozens of electric wires running to your neighborhood, one for each power company. Your power company is selling you electricity they buy and mark up from the owners of the power grid.
Growing up the state owned the power networks. As you say one lead in but different "handlers" of the bill now. We get half price in the weekend from memory?
