Understanding deregulated energy

Deregulation – or energy choice – means you can pick who supplies your electricity or natural gas from a pool of candidates based on where you live. This increased competition between suppliers can lead to lower rates and better plan options. To learn more about deregulation, see a few of our top guides and frequently asked questions below.

What is Eversource Energy’s Basic Service?

If you live in Massachusetts and choose to not purchase electricity from an independent electric supplier, you will receive Eversource Energy’s Basic Service plan. The rates for Basic Service are set and controlled by the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities. This rate will provide you with your “rate to compare.” Customers can opt for a 6-month fixed rate plan or a month-to-month variable rate plan.

What is the difference between a utility and a supplier?

A utility company, such as Eversource Energy, is an energy company that is responsible for the power infrastructure and sells energy to residents and businesses in its service area.

In deregulated areas, there are also energy suppliers (also referred to as a provider or ESCO in some areas). Energy suppliers are separate companies that compete for your business by offering lower electricity rates.
