Energy Pricing FAQs
Q. Why do energy prices go up in the winter and summer?

Energy Deregulation and Choosing Your Energy Supplier
Before energy was deregulated in the 1980s, the only option a consumer had was to purchase energy from their local utility. Government-regulated pricing and purchasing from a single source created a monopoly in the local marketplace. Once energy deregulation was approved, customers were able to benefit from an open and free marketplace, allowing them to switch electricity and natural gas suppliers and the ability to obtain competitive market rates to the consumer.
This free market offers the ability to choose from a list of options for electricity and natural gas supply. You can switch to an energy supplier that offers you the right energy price, product and service to fit your needs.
