Location: New Jersey

New Jersey deregulated their energy market in 1999 when they passed Electric Discount and Energy Competition Act. This law gave residents and businesses in the state the ability to shop independent electricity providers for the best supply rate. Although New Jersey residents have had the ability to switch providers for nearly 20 years, only about 20% have switched their electricity provider. With the 10th highest electricity rates in the country, New Jersey residents and businesses may be able to find a lower electricity rate by shopping around.
