California Electricity Suppliers and who can choose an alternate energy company?

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011 | Permalink

California is a deregulated electric utility state but their right to choose is a little bit more hampered than in other states.

Because CA has had issues in the past with their deregulated energy market they are phasing in deregulation again very slowly.

There is a cap in place that only lets so many commercial and industrial businesses participate and when that cap is reached no more businesses can choose an alternate provider.

When choosing a competing electricity supplier there is usually only one motivation for doing so and that is a cheaper price.

When the cap is reached many businesses may see this cap as being unfair because some businesses got to save money on their electric bill while others did not.

Don’t worry too much about this cap as this whole CA deregulation process is a slow progression and the cap is just an artificial measure to make sure the process goes smoothly.

CA can decide each year if they need to expand the cap or eliminate it all together based on if the deregulation role out is going well.

If you are a commercial or industrial business in California you can shop and compare electricity suppliers by participating in a reverse auction process.
