States with energy choice
Fifteen states now have deregulated energy markets, whether for electricity, natural gas, or both. Now, consumers have more control over their energy bills with the option to choose between many competitive rates and plans.
Look for your state below to see if it benefits from energy deregulation and to learn more about the rules in your area. Some states limit deregulation to commercial or industrial customers, so we’ve only listed those who offer widespread residential and business choice.
What does energy choice mean?
Energy choice, also known as energy deregulation, gives residents and businesses the power to choose their electricity or natural gas provider. While utility companies still deliver the energy, suppliers (also known as providers or ESCOs) sell energy to consumers.
Because it introduces competition into the market, consumers can find lower rates or plans that better fit their needs than what their utility company offers.
If you experience a power outage or other energy emergency, you should still contact your utility company. If you have questions about your energy plan or bill, contact your supplier.
