Maryland deregulated energy

Deregulated energy markets have been enacted in over 15 states and territories across the United States. The purpose of a deregulated energy system is to give power back to consumers by offering a range of choices and benefits that compete with those offered by your local utility.p>

Maryland’s deregulated energy system puts customers first by offering high-quality power service at affordable prices. Since 1999, thousands of Maryland residents and business owners have saved money with deregulated electric or natural gas.

Why deregulated energy?

Our partner, Choose Energy, works with national retail energy suppliers to bring great rates and products to Maryland’s customers. These deregulated suppliers often offer plans and services that the local utility cannot, while also giving customers stability and peace of mind in their monthly energy bills. Products and services include:

  • Fixed-rate plan
  • Variable-rate plan
  • Renewable energy plans
  • Home Services
  • Renewable Energy Credits (RECs)
  • To find and compare deregulated energy rates from the Choose Energy marketplace, enter your ZIP code above.

    Who provides my power?

    Deregulated energy customers in Maryland still receive safe and reliable electric or natural gas delivery from their local utility company. The only real difference you’ll will see with a deregulated energy plan is the rate you pay for your home or business’s power; since deregulated suppliers buy energy in bulk for the utility companies, your deregulated energy rate will stay consistent from month to month for the length of your contract.

    If you do experience an outage or other problem, contact your local utility immediately.
