What is Energy Deregulation?
Deregulation allows consumers to choose where they buy their power, much as they can choose their long distance company. While the National Policy Act of 1978 and later the Energy Policy Act of 1992 provide open access for all electricity suppliers to the U.S. power grid, implementation of deregulation was left up to the individual states.

states that are fully or partially deregulated.
