Everybody has choices. From what to wear in the morning to what to eat for dinner, we are all faced with a myriad of decisions throughout the day. Of course, some decisions carry more weight than others. Luckily, when it comes to choosing which power supplier will furnish your home or business with the energy needed to operate, the decision has become a lot easier.
Thanks to energy utility deregulation, energy users in many states are seeing their energy supplier options open up. In states that have retained regulated electricity and natural gas markets, consumer’s options are slim to none. Usually consumers in regulated energy states must use one single local utility provider. While prices are fixed by national and state governments in regulated markets, consumers do not have the ability to choose between more efficient, cheaper, or greener energy supplies. They are simply stuck with their local utility.
