Electricity providers in your area
In states with a deregulated energy market, electric providers compete to provide you electricity, which can give you multiple benefits. Competition can lead to lower energy rates and special promotions. With deregulation, you may get to choose which electric company and plan you want depending on where you live.
As you look for a power company to service your home, you may want to consider:
- Price per kilowatt hour
- Type of rate (fixed or variable)
- Length of available plans
- Early termination fees
- Reputation of energy provider
Which states have deregulated electricity?
States that have elecricity deregulation
What residents in deregulated markets should know
Even in a deregulated electricity market, a local utility still handles how electricity is transmitted and distributed, and no one can choose their local utility. The utility company transmits your chosen electricity, maintains and repairs the power grid and usually bills for electricity usage and transmission.
In some states, utilities can also generate and sell electricity, but you aren’t forced to buy the electricity from the utility. You may choose to buy electric service from either the utility or available providers.
Before signing up for electricity service, we recommend checking the local utility’s electricity supply rate by checking their rates online or contacting them directly.

Don’t see your state listed?
The states above all have electricity deregulation. Some states have partial deregulation, though.
Most states have regulated electric markets which means a single utility handles the entire process of generating or buying electricity, storing it and then delivering it to customers like you. If you live in a state with a regulated electric market, you do not get to choose an electric provider.

Common electricity service questions
No, switching electricity providers should not interrupt your electricity service at home.
Depending on your current power company’s terms, it can cost you money if you switch before the end of your electricity plan contract.
If you live in a regulated state, your local utility determines who generates your electricity and controls your electricity transmission and distribution. You can usually find your utility company by visiting your city government website, by contacting your local government office or by contacting your landlord if you are a renter.
A fixed rate plan is an electricity plan charging the same price per kWh from month to month. In addition, a flat rate plan is an electricity plan that charges the same price per kWh no matter how much you choose. Variable electric rate plans allow your price per kWh to vary by month to month.
