Deregulation gives consumers the ability to choose an energy supplier. It motivates retailers to differentiate their products from the utility and offer pricing plans and options that would have otherwise not been available. In deregulated electricity markets, these products support the generation and injection of renewable energy into your electricity grid. In a deregulated gas market, these green products support emission reduction projects that prevent polluting gases from entering the atmosphere and help contribute to a cleaner, greener environment.
