What Does Deregulation Mean To You?
For most homes, turning an appliance on and off all day will likely not affect the bill other than the actual energy used. You'll still save in many other ways by reviewing your utility bills every several months (see list below!).
But large residential buildings, warehouses and other businesses may be paying for more than they actually use.
Utility companies must ensure they have enough available capacity for all of their customers. To do this, they assess peak usage of larger commercial accounts and keep wires and pipes available that can deliver that amount of energy, charging your account to keep them open.
