Competition & Consumer Choice

Consumers should have a choice in their electricity provider. Competition drives companies to develop products that meet the needs of consumers and encourages companies to provide customer-centric services.

Sustainability & Renewable Energy

Consumers should have the ability to choose energy providers that match their renewable energy and efficiency goals. Competitive markets allow energy providers to cater to consumers who prefer supporting wind and solar energy.
