What is deregulation?

In the late 1990s, the New Jersey legislature voted to deregulate natural gas service. Before deregulation, you wouldn’t have many options as it relates to natural gas suppliers. It limited your ability to compare South Jersey natural gas prices, and you could end up paying more for service since providers didn’t have as much competition. 

However, with deregulation, the market has more suppliers, so you can have a variety of options and save money at more affordable rates. It is where Choose Energy can help you. Our resources can help you understand:

What is the difference between a natural gas utility and a supplier?

A supplier’s responsibility is to provide natural gas to homes and businesses in its service area. They do this by using the infrastructure supplied by the utility company. They’ll also be responsible for informing customers in their service area about their rates, promotions, and how to sign up for a plan with them. 

Meanwhile, utility companies repair and maintain the infrastructure used to deploy natural gas as well as handle any repairs, gas leaks, or account questions homeowners or businesses have.
