It's all about Choice
Prior to energy deregulation, Electricity and Natural Gas utilities were considered monopolies. Utility companies owned the power plants, generated electricity and delivered it to homes through the poles and wires they owned.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, utilities were broken apart and deregulated, just like the airline and telecommunications industries. Competition decreased prices for customers and provided more options to benefit consumers.
With deregulation, Utility services were split into two parts:
Supply: the purchase of the actual energy used. This is now open to competition.
Delivery: sending the purchased energy through poles, wires and pipes to reach customers’ homes. This part of the industry remains a monopoly.
In the energy industry, Retail Supply Companies are competing to bring the best value and rates to customers. Let us help you take advantage of competition and Customer Choice!
