Paterson energy deregulation

In August 1999, after closely examining how other states deregulated energy, New Jersey joined them by passing a law supporting energy deregulation. State law now requires that the supply portion of each consumer's energy bill be separate from the delivery portion. Energy deregulation in Paterson allows residents to shop around for the best prices, opening the door to supplier competition. Although residents have their choice of suppliers, those residents with the highest energy usage typically get the most competitive rates. Inspired by deregulation laws in Massachusetts, a process known as "aggregation" makes it easy for New Jersey consumers to buy power in bulk, driving down the energy costs for residents.
