Why you should consider a switch to deregulated energy?

Massachusetts energy customers can purchase a deregulated energy plan from the Choose Energy marketplace. The deregulated energy system takes the energy market monopoly away from Massachusetts’ utility companies and opens it up to retail suppliers from across the country. Retail suppliers offer residential and business customers competitive rates that the local utilities often can’t beat.

The deregulated energy market also lets customers lock in a rate for the duration of the energy plan’s contract, unlike utility company’s rates that can fluctuate month to month. Paying one rate regardless of national energy price changes can mean big savings on customers’ monthly energy bills. Regardless of whether you choose a deregulated energy plan, your local utility will still deliver safe and reliable power to your home or business.

To find a deregulated energy plan today, visit the Choose Energy marketplace.
