How Deregulation Gives Consumers Choice

Energy deregulation is similar to the telephone industry that took place in the 1980’s. You still have only one set of telephone poles and wires on your street, which is maintained by the telephone utility, but you can choose to sign up with whichever service provider offers the plan that suits you best. 5 benefits of energy deregulation:

  1. Consumers can save money on monthly power and gas bills. Competition drives down prices.
  2. You can opt for greener energy, if you’d like to make your electricity and gas greener, deregulation can help you do so.
  3. Your service won’t be interrupted if you switch Deregulation only affects the supply of energy, not its distribution or delivery channels.
  4. Can enjoy better customer service. With deregulation, another way energy companies can garner business is with outstanding customer service.
  5. You can take advantage of suppliers’ discount and loyalty programs.
