What is electricity deregulation?

Electricity deregulation eliminates the rules and regulations that restrict companies from selling energy. That makes it easier for companies to enter the market, which in turn gives you more options of where to purchase electricity and natural gas. In other words, in a deregulated energy market, you can purchase your energy from someone other than your local utility.

Just like how there’s more than one phone company, more than one cable company, and more than one airline, there are multiple energy companies that compete for customers.

Electricity prices

Electricity prices vary by fuel cost, power grid maintenance and operation, type of customer (residential, commercial, industrial), location, seasonality and weather conditions.

Help with electric bills

Many families struggle to pay electricity bills each month, particularly when prices and demand rise during summer and winter. One way to get help paying your electric bill is to lock in a lower rate during the spring and fall. This can help keep your monthly electric bills more consistent and predictable, though there will still be variations because of usage.

Electricity cost by state

Residential electricity prices vary widely across the US, as low as 9.88 cents per kWh in Louisiana to 33.43 cents per kWh in Hawaii.

Electricity power sources

The United States generates electricity from a variety of sources including coal, natural gas, nuclear, and renewable energy such as hydropower, geothermal, solar, and wind.
