In many states, utility monopolies still control the energy market and customers can’t choose where they buy their electricity and gas. These outdated markets disempower consumers and limit market innovations, customer access to a variety of products and limit investments in clean energy resources and technologies.
Our organization was founded by a coalition of companies dedicated to the expansion and modernization of American retail energy markets. We believe smart regulation and consumer protections are the foundation for a healthy market where states can capitalize on the innovations and customer demand driving our transition to a clean energy economy.
REAL is comprised of retail energy companies seeking to improve customer access and competitive markets within the U.S. REAL and its member companies work with and are continuously seeking new partners to ensure strong consumer protections exist within the market to drive the expansion of affordable, reliable and clean energy resources.LEARN MORE
