Energy Choice

What is Energy Choice?

Energy choice is the ability for customers to shop the energy market and choose a company and product that meets their unique energy needs.

Unfortunately, not every state empowers customers to shop and many still protect utility monopoly markets, blocking retailers from providing customers with options. Outdated retail markets disempower consumers and limit support for clean energy investments and market opportunities for advanced customer-facing technologies that give customers more transparency and control over their energy usage and bill.
