When you call the local electric company for electric or gas power, which usually happens when you move into a new home or open a new office, you might think that you are stuck paying the rates you’re offered. We’re not referring to haggling. You shouldn’t try to talk the utility company into giving you a lower rate. Instead, you should switch from the local utility provider altogether. Thanks to electrical deregulation, you can now cut down your electricity or gas bill by making the switch to a third-party electrical provider. This creates more competition in the energy industry, which equates to lower prices, improved customer service and an enhanced experience for energy customers.
