Don’t Be Misled

Posted on February 7, 2011. Filed under: News |

Living in states where the electricity market is deregulated has led to lower energy prices for consumers due to competition among energy providers. An open market also allows businesses and homeowners to make an electricity purchase towards clean, renewable technologies and to support business models besides standard utility companies.

Overall, this option is a positive for the consumer because it empowers one with the ability to make their own energy choice. However, not all electricity providers are created equal. Some options may be purposefully deceptive. The Public Service Commission (PSC) urges consumers to educate themselves about their choices and be cautious of companies who do not meet PSC regulations.

Recently, the Maryland PSC has scrutinized the practices of Veridian, one of the competitive supplier operating in Maryland. See the full articles in The Baltimore Sun here and Baltimore Business Journal here. The PSC closely monitors the practices of competitive electricity suppliers to ensure that consumers protected from deceptive practices and that one company’s practices are not indicative of the industry as a whole.

The link in your email takes you to the Baltimore Sun article. At the bottom google provides an ad which takes you right to North American Power’s website, where you can buy their “cheaper” electricity. Your email becomes a link to their ad.
