Just as you have the choice to select your cell phone service provider or your car insurance company, you also have the choice to select an energy services company.
Energy deregulation has enabled consumers to purchase their energy supply from an Energy Services Company (ESCO) of their choice. Since deregulation, the utility company is no longer the only option for energy supply.
Deregulation has increased competition among energy suppliers and bolstered a free market arena for customers. It has also produced new energy innovations, products and services that customers are able to shop for and purchase. When customers participate in energy deregulation, they benefit from competitive pricing for energy related products and services.
