    • What is energy deregulation and how does it affect me?

      In short, deregulation allows you to choose where you purchase your electricity. That means you can now shop for your energy plan the same way you do for phone and internet service.  Energy deregulation separates the production energy from its delivery.  Utilities have typically been responsible for both supplying and delivering energy.  Deregulation breaks up this monopoly, allowing you to purchase energy from retail electric providers.
