Energy - Some things change…

Deregulation was put into place by state governments and is very highly regulated by local utility commissions.  Despite its youth, it is recognized nationwide as beneficial to consumers because removed part of the monopoly held by local utilities and invites in competition and innovation.  There are many successful energy supply companies out there who compete to bring value to consumers. 

For more information on the legitimacy of deregulation, you can direct people towards the websites of their local utility boards.  For New York, it is the New York State Public Service Commission.  For New Jersey, it is called the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, and for Illinois it is the Illinois Commerce Commission.  Independence Energy is licensed with each of these boards, meaning we have met all standards set forth by the local governments to provide energy services in their states.

Don’t forget to show customers our guarantee that they will not lose power during the switch.

Energy deregulation began in the late 1990s, giving consumers the power to choose their energy supplier. Deregulation creates competition and, in turn, better products for you to choose from, and to tailor to your personal needs. You can choose your supplier based on environmental impact, affordability, cash back, support in lowering your energy usage, or, in the case of Independence Energy, all of the above!

Energy deregulation not only results in better products for consumers, it also creates an opportunity for a new income stream for you if you choose to help others switch their electric service.

… and some stay the same

Even though energy supply has been deregulated, your electricity is still delivered by your same utility, using the same lines with the same service, and is as safe and reliable as it has always been. Nothing changes for you except the name of your electricity supplier on your energy bill.
