Why deregulated energy?

The Massachusetts deregulated energy system helps customers save money on their monthly energy bills without compromising their energy’s quality of service. Through the deregulated electric market, Massachusetts residents and business owners can choose who supplies their home or office’s electricity. Suppliers from across the country compete for Massachusetts energy customers by offering high-quality energy products and pricing incentives, which are often better deals and lower rates than those of the local utility companies.

In addition to rate stability and first-rate service, deregulated energy suppliers frequently offer options for green or renewable energy sourcing, appliance efficiency improvements and more.

Who provides my power?

The only difference you’ll see in your energy service with a deregulated plan is how much you’re paying for it. Even with a deregulated energy plan, your local utility will continue to deliver reliable electricity or natural gas to your home or business.

Massachusetts customers with deregulated energy plans will receive the same high-quality utility service that they’ve always had, but with the benefit of a lower price tag. This is because your local utility still delivers electricity to your home or business – signing up with a deregulated energy supplier won’t interrupt your power service at all. If you do encounter a power outage or other problem, contact your utility immediately.
