Energy Deregulation

The idea behind deregulation is simple. More providers means more competitive pricing and greater variety of services. Customers win.

Common Questions


How does deregulation affect me?

It depends. Different markets in North America have different regulations on energy services. In regulated areas, the government or public utility decides the price for commodity service, and customers have no alternative. Start by researching providers in your area.

Should I support deregulation?

Yes. Energy deregulation is good for everyone. In deregulated markets, customers have a choice between their public utility and alternative providers. Additionally, deregulation does not mean you have to change your service—only that you have a choice.

What else comes with deregulation?

Deregulation paves the way for energy providers to try new things. More efficient technology, new pricing models, and sustainable energy packages are some of the positive effects of limiting regulation.

What if I’m satisfied with my provider?

Then you’re in a great position! Increased competition is good for the market as a whole, and if you ever become dissatisfied with your provider, deregulation helps ensure you have alternatives.

You have a right to...

Fair Prices

All we ask is that energy consumers make a conscious decision. Choose the provider who gives you a fair price for the service you want. If you end up picking us, we promise to give you excellent service and care.

More Innovation

This is another result of competition. When more suppliers go after the same customer base, everyone comes up with new ways to differentiate themselves. Take your pick.

Reliable Service

We offer support and answer any questions you have about your service. At the same time, your local distribution company ensures that your service remains uninterrupted.

Green Energy

Producing and consuming electricity takes a toll on the environment. Some methods, such as burning fossil fuels, do more damage than others. Renewable energy resources, such as solar and wind power, are environmentally-friendly. The important thing to remember is that Hudson gives you a choice.
