Before deregulation in the 1980s, the only option consumers had for their energy supply was their local utility; there was no choice. The government-regulated pricing and single-distribution source fostered a monopolistic marketplace. Once deregulation was approved, customers started benefiting from an open, free marketplace offering a choice in supplier and ultimately, more competitive rates.
