planetFrequently Asked Questions

 

How does energy deregulation affect me?

Deregulation separated the supply and distribution of electricity and natural gas. This means that you are able to buy your electricity and/or natural gas at a competitive rate for a protected term( Price Certainty) from a licensed marketer such as The Energy Management Group.

What’s the best way to take advantage of deregulation in my state?

In several U.S. markets, you now have the right to choose your natural gas and electricity supplier. But what does that really mean? In most cases, you could carry on the uncertainty and volatility of the energy market and paying what the utility charges without even realizing you have the option to better protect your business.  It is up to you to research energy providers and find ways take advantage of the many opportunities in your marketplace. EMG makes it easy for you to do just that.

If I change my electricity or natural gas service, will I have to get new power and gas lines installed?

In a competitive market, your energy supply is deregulated, not your energy delivery. That means your utility will always be responsible for getting the power to your business. They are the company responsible for maintaining your power lines, your natural gas pipes, measuring your meters and responding in the case of an outage.

How will my billing work?

Utility bills for natural gas and electricity include one total price for supply, transmission, and distribution. Deregulation means the supply portion of your energy service will be open to competition. You will still receive one bill from your utility company.  The energy supply portion of your bill will be handled and negotiated by EMG.

What if I am already in the middle of an electric or natural gas agreement?

When dealing with the uncertainties and extreme volatility of the competitive energy market it’s very important to operate proactively.  The most advantageous time to review your energy budget would be when you have time remaining on your current agreement, this allows decisions to be made proactively.    Often time’s consumers will react to a situation revolving around the energy market that causes a reactive decision by the customer which may not have been the best decision at the time.  Giving you a length of time to be able to make the best decisions for your energy budget is ideal.
