Why should I choose a deregulated electricity plan?
The goal of energy deregulation in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere is to help customers find competitive energy supply rates and, ultimately, save money. Within a deregulated energy market, electric suppliers compete for customers by offering rates and plan types that stress savings and flexibility. When you get to choose your energy suppliers, you take back control.
If your home or business falls within the PEPCO utility area and you decide that you don’t want to purchase a deregulated electricity plan, it’s OK; you’ll still receive power from PEPCO – but your monthly energy rate might be higher than you’d like. This is because of the Standard Offer Service, or SOS, which is PEPCO’s uncapped default rate. That’s because SOS consumers have seen an 85% increase in their monthly generation rate. Let US Power and Light show you how much we can save you for your business or home.
History of energy deregulation in Washington, D.C.
On January 1, 2001, the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia restructured the state’s energy service into a deregulated electricity market. Prior to electric deregulation, DC’s energy was supplied and deliver by one company. By deregulating DC’s electric system, the Commission gave DC energy consumers a choice as to who provided their energy and how much they wanted to spend per month. Today, Choose Energy has partnered with several of the area’s most trusted energy suppliers to provide efficient, budget-friendly electric plans for the people of DC.
