Deregulated States

The push for deregulation of natural gas and electric happened when the Federal Energy Regulation Commission (FERC) decided it should limit its authority to wholesale transactions. This move cleared the way for individual states to determine if and how they should allow retail price competition.

Deregulation is the removal or simplification of government rules and regulations that constrain the operation of market forces.

Deregulation does not mean elimination of laws against fraud, but eliminates or reducing government control of how business is done, thereby moving toward a more free market.

This means you can choose the gas and electric that comes to your home or business.
