In the past few years, the energy marketplace has undergone some massive changes. The latest trend of deregulation helped stabilize the industry and encouraged new energy suppliers to enter the market and serve the energy needs in a competitive, cost-effective way. The increased competition in deregulated markets has lowered the cost of energy to the benefit of customers. Deregulation has created an energy marketplace with healthy competition between old and new suppliers – where customers now have more choice.
In simple terms, Energy Deregulation is the introduction of a new set of rules opening up the energy marketplace to new energy suppliers and creating options for the customers to choose who they want to source their energy from. Previously a regulated energy market existed where the state picked only one energy supplier. This local, state chosen supplier was the only source of energy and had complete control over the pricing. With the introduction of new rules deregulating the marketplace, new suppliers are able to enter the market and customers are able to shop around for competitive rates. These new competitive rates save customers a substantial amount of money on their electricity and gas bills.
While the process of deregulation started a long time ago, it was not until the late 2000’s when new service providers entered the market bringing competition and delivering energy at better rates.
Today this newly deregulated energy market has grown so much it has over 150 suppliers providing competitive energy rates to the customers. In a deregulated energy market customers can still purchase energy through their utility company, but they can also opt to purchase energy directly from the supplier and have the utility company simply service the account. This new alternate procurement process, leads to potential savings of 5-40% on monthly utility bills.
An industry of brokers has emerged to facilitate energy procurement and capture these savings for customers. The rates previously charged by the supplier in the regulated energy market were so high energy brokers were imbedding margin to earn a commission from the supplier even after offering 20-30% savings to customers.
