In a deregulated energy market, your choice is your voice. #ServicesKnowledge
You like what you like. Some people might call you picky or finicky, but you prefer the term "fastidious."
When it comes to the food you eat, the movies you watch or the company you keep, mulling over your choice truly makes a difference, at least in your mind. But in a deregulated energy market, choice is all there is. It's not a matter of opinion, but a power that when wielded has a dramatic impact on usage, cost and consumer interest.
Energy reform costs money Our country is going through a revolution in energy. Not only are we getting energy from new places like renewables, but the transmission and distribution infrastructure is getting its own makeover as well. Moreover, in the advent of distributed energy resource, power flow must go two ways, both away from generators and away from homeowners and commercial businesses producing their own electricity to feed the grid.
"The cost of renovating the national energy infrastructure doesn't come cheap."
Unfortunately, the cost of renovating the national energy infrastructure doesn't come cheap. According to the Quadrennial Energy Review released by the Department of Energy last April, updating the national grid could be a multi trillion-dollar operation. Though much of the technology we use today to receive and transmit our power was constructed by the government, the hardware itself is leased by third-party providers and generators. These organizations will be expected to pitch in their fair share.
Generators and energy providers adapting to the changing times will have to spend a considerable amount of money helping rebuild the energy sector. As a result, energy rates overall have risen unrelentingly over the last few years and will continue to do so as the country's infrastructure is under construction. As Greentech Media reported, in states with deregulated energy markets, independent providers control about 60 percent of the regional load.
However, as a new study revealed, states with deregulated energy markets have mitigated these price hikes admirably. According to research from the Compete Coalition, though rates for residential, commercial and industrial energy have trended upward between 1997 and 2014, deregulated energy markets only saw a 41 percent increase. States with energy monopolies saw costs climb as high as 60 percent. The study goes on to show how effective deregulation has been at moderating even the most expensive energy markets like those in the Northeast.
As inevitable as higher energy costs seem during this time of reform, competition still has the power to suppress price hikes as low as they can feasibly go, all because ratepayers can choose between providers.
Reading the fine print When a homeowner or business manager signs up for service with a retail energy provider, they agree to a contract that maps out both parties' mutual terms. For the end user in a utilities-only energy market, all this might require is a quick signature, but for the people living in states with deregulation, it's a stopping point, a place to consider your options.
Are you looking for a fixed rate energy plan that can freeze costs now while they're low to avoid paying more when they increase? Would you rather take a chance with a time-variable plan that sets your rate based on real-time market costs? Can this energy provider guarantee that at least a portion of your power comes from cleaner, green resources? Selecting the right retail energy provider at the right time could make all the difference to your energy use now, but it will also motivate you to consider your energy consumption long term. Energy customers "in the know" are more likely to make better decisions about usage because they're backed by the power of their informed decision-making abilities.
