For example: the DOE has , the State of California has specific consumer information and the University of Southwestern Louisiana has no cost energy saving ideas If you like simple to understand things (like tax forms), then you may like the way This page like the rest of this site is a constant work in progress. Now that I installed a chat room, I hope people post their own opinions on energy deregulation and experiences with alternate utilities so I can tabulate the information (and post it for the benefit of all). To get the ball rolling so to speak, since I consider myself a green capitalist, I have mixed feeling about the unprecedented rise of gas and electrical prices in the San Diego area. On one hand I think the rise in energy prices is good because it will force people to adopt energy conservation habits long since ignored because energy costs do not really reflect the true cost to the environment and public health. On the other hand it is shocking to pay lots more money (than usual) for gas and electricity, money which could be used for cool capitalist toys and capital improvement.

Opinion Beware of so-called 'energy deregulation' Web posted Sunday, November 23, 2003 By Phil Kent Guest Columnist JUST AS THE phony "campaign finance reform" that passed Congress seemed appealing so, too, does the sound of "electricity deregulation" sound welcome to the unsuspecting. ADVERTISEMENT Have a thought? Go to the Forums or Chat Subscribe E-mail this story Write a letter to the Editor ... Get e-mail headlines That's why Americans shouldn't be misled as the U.S. Senate grapples with passing wide-ranging energy legislation designed to provide reliable electrical service to consumers in all 50 states. Senators must understand they are facing two uniquely distinct kinds of energy companies today. There is the one you grew up with, and the one that wants you to think it is just like the one you grew up with. THE TRADITIONAL hometown energy provider generated electricity, transmitted it across the grid and delivered it to customers in their franchise territory. The business was regulated by a state agency to ensure fairness in price to consumers while offering reasonable rates of return to investors. Up until about a decade ago, this model was basically working well across America.

5. Energy Menu : Introduction
Help consumers and businesses take advantage of energy deregulation.
ENERGY MENU site by gromco


Electricity is generated primarily by burning fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, and oil, and to a lesser extent through nuclear fission, dams, solar power, etc. As power plants generate electricity, it is transported across long distance, hi-voltage transmission lines to numerous substations that convert it to lower voltage power for ultimate delivery to your home or business via local distribution lines. These components, along with an independent agency (ISO) that ensures reliability, make up the electric grid.
Prior to deregulation, utilities controlled all aspects of this process and the consumer had no choice in who produced their power. Today utilities still control the transmission, distribution and metering of electricity, but they been forced to sell their power plants to create a new, competitive market for the actual production and generation of power.

January 20, 2001
Wow whose stupid idea was deregulation? This past week we have had a few days of consecutive rolling blackouts in California, which makes it seem more like third world countries and former communist states than the so called golden state. Now I do not have to travel to interesting parts of the world to see the effects of poor resource management. Since I was luck enough to have the foresight to switch to an alternative energy provider when this mess began last summer, then find out that the alternative energy provider I selected itself become a victim of ill conceived deregulation (see my December 27, 2000 entry), I think I have a rough idea of what went wrong with so called deregulation. BTW this past week another alternative energy provider Utility.Com, a web energy provider pulls the plug on consumers After an unsuccessful presidential bid by Pete Wilson, another California politician Assemblyman Steve Peace in 1996 decided to make a name for himself and gathered the big industrial customers, utilities, and various interest groups together and somehow managed to get the legislature to unanimously pass an electricity restructuring bill. The reality was at the time, California had one of the highest energy rates in the nation, and it was thought that so called deregulation would lower energy bills. For a few years it worked, because it forced local utilities to sell off their power generation units under the restructuring bill, and the proceeds of the sales were used to lower rates for all utility customers.

12. Energy Deregulation And Restructuring
energy deregulation and Restructuring. Frequently Asked Questions Aboutenergy deregulation and Restructuring. Glossary of Electricity Terms.
Energy Deregulation and Restructuring Change has come to Texas electric utilities, and some consumers in Texas can select the supplier of the generated electricity that they use in their homes and businesses. The Texas Legislature passed the restructuring bill with the hope that competition will result in lower cost and better service for consumers. Electricity will still be delivered by the current local utility through the same wires as it is today. Co-op members will continue to receive electricity over co-op lines even if the co-op chooses to enter the restructured market. It's just the power source that is the subject of electric restructuringor deregulation as it's also called. SB 7, the restructuring bill, required Texas' private investor-owned electric utilities (IOUs) to enter the competitive market on January 1, 2002. Cooperatives and municipally owned utilities have the option to compete or not. When Texas legislators approved electric restructuring in 1999 they recognized that member-owned electric co-ops and city-owned systems are locally based and that they operate under a democratic business model. Therefore they gave the co-ops and municipalities more options. When it comes to co-ops, each elected co-op board of directors will determine what path is best for their area's unique needs. Co-ops will be able to expand service into new territory

Frequently Asked Questions About
Energy Deregulation and Restructuring
Q: Are co-ops the only ones that have the flexibility to wait to decide whether to opt in? A: No. San Antonio, Austin, Brownsville, Lubbock and about 70 other municipalities are weighing their options, which are the same as the co-ops'. Q: Why aren't co-ops and municipally owned utilities required to compete as the investor-owned utilities are? A: Because when Texas legislators approved electric restructuring in 1999 they recognized that member-owned electric co-ops and city-owned systems are locally based and that they operate under a democratic business model. Co-op boards of directors and members must decide what path to take. Investor-owned utilities are dedicated to maximizing profits for their shareholders. The co-ops' goal, as it has always has been, is to serve you conscientiously and efficiently at the best possible cost. Q: When will my co-op make its choice?

Electric Power Wholesale Customers Facilities Renewable Energy ... FAQ Customer choice and public power in Texas Since the retail electric power market in Texas opened to competition on Jan. 1, 2002, people have begun to hear about deregulation and how electric choice might affect them. The new rules (see Senate Bill 7 LCRA, as a wholesale electric provider, is ready to serve its customers regardless of their decision. It is helping customers get ready for competition, and working to improve awareness of the value its relationship with local utilities brings to communities. It also is gearing up to meet future generation resource requirements. While the energy crisis that destroyed the deregulated California market in 2001 has faded from the news, Texas hasn't faced the same problems with electricity restructuring. In fact, other states are taking note of what is working in Texas, including ample sources of power. And, LCRA is helping address potential constraints in the statewide electricity grid by expanding transmission facilities so power can go where it is needed when it is needed. No matter what your utility decides to do, LCRA stands ready to provide reliable power at affordable prices. For more information

I've heard that electric utilities must "unbundle." What does that mean?
What is electric industry restructuring?
Starting Jan. 1, 2002, the electric industry in Texas was restructured and partially deregulated to provide customers choices in many markets. On that date, investor-owned electric utilities officially began to compete for electric customers. Deregulation means that providers, other than utilities, may compete for retail customers formerly served by regulated utilities.
back to top
What does that mean to me?
That depends on where you live. If you receive electric power from a public power provider, such as a city-owned utility or member-owned cooperative, your provider can choose whether or not to opt in to competition. Most public utilities are taking a "wait-and-see" approach to customer choice.

Energy Deregulation: Dead on Arrival at Capitol?
By Marisa Helms
February 22, 2001
Part of MPR's online project, This Cold House RealAudio
As Minnesota lawmakers consider ways to alleviate a projected energy shortfall later this decade, advocates of energy deregulation are pitching a free-market solution. They say deregulating the state's electricity industry would increase power generation and improve the reliability of the system. But the much publicized instability of the deregulated California market has some Minnesotans skeptical of the benefits of retail competition. HOW MINNESOTA COMPARES
How do Minnesota residential customers compare with the rest of the nation in cost per kilowatt hour?
