What is Deregulated Energy Again and Why Do I Want It?

Monday, June 17, 2019 — Starion Energy

We all want it, a lower carbon footprint in order to leave this world a better place than when we found it. A lower electric bill wouldn't be such a bad thing either! There are many ways to do this in today's world.

Solar energy reduces 35 Million tons of carbon dioxide annually. A step forward in the quest for finding new, sustainable, and potentially more affordable energy sources is deregulated energy or energy choice.

For those that don't know, deregulated energy/energy choice is when there is less governmental control over your electricity. Pretty simple right? But, what does this mean for you? Basically, deregulated energy is electricity that isn't owned by utilities. Energy choice gives you more options to compare and choose from. Energy choice allows you to choose the energy supplier that can help fit your budget, needs and lifestyle. 

When lighting makes up 10 percent of home energy costs, saving money on energy expenses sounds like a really great idea. Is there a downside to deregulated energy or energy choice? Well, there's a reason energy has been regulated for so long: it is proven to be effective, efficient, and trusted. Still, this doesn't mean deregulated energy cannot come from reputable sources/companies.  So, while deregulated energy can come from smaller, more local energy companies, it doesn't mean that there isn't oversight and control because as American Power and Gas says "you’ll still receive your power and gas through your local utility’s infrastructure, but you can choose where to source your energy. "Deregulated energy is really about giving the choice back to the customer and consumer." 

It's nice to know that with energy choice you can have options when it comes to your electricity suppliers now.  Now is the time to at least check to see of your state is a deregulated energy choice state and what your electricity plan options are.
