What is energy deregulation?
In the past, you could only buy electricity from the utility but now you have other options. There are other energy suppliers available so you can “shop around” for the best rate for you. The rate is applicable to the supply portion of your invoice only. The utility will still transmit and distribute the energy so you will still be invoiced for this at their rates. Don’t worry, you will only receive one invoice each month not multiple! Your invoice should have the detail costs and which component they are associated with.
What is the difference between a regulated and deregulated state?
Let me expand on what deregulated energy is for those that are still unsure of what this means. The difference between regulated and deregulated energy is that regulated you have only one main company and that is the utility. In this scenario, they generate, sell, transmit, and distribute the energy to its customers. In a deregulated market, a middle man is involved known as the supplier. The utility still transmits and distributes the energy but does not sell directly to the consumer. However, if you choose not to use a supplier, the utility can still provide you with electricity but it may be at a higher rate than a supplier can give you. Deregulated markets allow suppliers to compete and sell electricity directly to the consumer.
How does a deregulated market benefit you, the consumer?
A deregulated market benefits you, the consumer, in that the suppliers will be competing for your business by trying to give you the lowest rate possible. This rate will be for the supply portion of your invoice which is usually about half of your bill. Once you decide that you want this savings and start shopping you probably should consider doing some research on the supplier too. Check out their load management, hidden fees, and reliability. HOWEVER, there is another solution!
