The Benefits of Energy Choice
Why does energy choice matter for you, the consumer?
In the past, local energy utilities have been responsible for both the supply and delivery of electricity and natural gas. For example, the move to deregulate the electricity market in Texas gave consumers the option to purchase their energy from independent retailers rather than their local utilities. In short, it’s a lot like shopping for phone or internet service. With energy deregulation comes choice, and with choice comes competition.
How does energy competition benefit consumers?
After energy deregulation occured, an abundance of independent energy providers have popped up to provide customers in their communities with a new choice for energy suppliers. With so much competition within the energy market, consumers have the luxury of selecting only the provider that offers them the best incentives. Here are just a few ways energy deregulation can benefit you:
Save Money on Your Energy Bill
Oftentimes, consumers can lower their electricity and natural gas bills by switching away from their local utility. Independent energy providers are able to shop around for the best prices, which they are then able to pass along to their customers, resulting in lower bills each month.
Choose Green Energy
If choosing green electricity or natural gas is important to you, you now have the power to shop around for the provider that values and can deliver green options that many local utilities do not provide. Going green doesn’t have to be complicated! Enjoy your same level of energy service and help to reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.
Enjoy Superior Customer Service
Have questions about your service or need help? Jumping through hoops trying to get in contact with your local utility can be frustrating to say the least. Independent energy suppliers know that you have plenty of other options, providing customers with unparalleled support.
Take Advantage of Discounts & Loyalty Programs
Because of the number of options available, if a customer isn’t incentivized to stay with their provider, they can easily switch to a provider that gives them more bang for their buck. This makes loyalty programs and discounts imperative!
