Worcester energy deregulation

In order to give customers more control over their energy bills, Massachusetts passed energy deregulation legislation. In years past, a single utility (or wires) company would deliver and supply energy to homes and businesses. While this may seem like the simplest method, it is actually the most expensive, as it established a monopoly for the Worcester wires company.

Energy deregulation in Worcester introduced competition to the market, giving customers more choices. While a single utility provider will continue to create and transmit the electricity, consumers can now compare prices from several different Worcester energy suppliers.
