What is Energy Choice?
Energy Choice (otherwise know as deregulation) allows consumers and businesses the power to choose who supplies their electricity and natural gas and what price they will pay. The utility companies are still responsible for transporting the commodity, maintaining natural gas pipelines and electric transmission lines, and respond to customers emergency needs.
Imagine two different cities:
Deregulation can be summed up in one word, CHOICE
This is almost exactly what has happened with utility companies. Instead of being forced to get your energy at a price determined by the utility, you have the option to choose a different company and get a lower price. If you’re like most people, you receive your electric bill each month, pay it and throw it away. You may be paying more than you have to!
