I want to deregulate Electricity in Tennessee to make living more affordable for Tennessee families!

Energy companies in TN have a monopoly on Electricity in the state. Because of this our energy providers are charging more and more every year, while adding nonsense fees for water and energy because they have no competition. 

Why Deregulate Electricity?  COMPETITION LOWERS PRICES FOR CONSUMERS!!! Hence lower utility bills = more money left for your family.

So what is electricity deregulation?    In Tennessee consumers do not have a choice for their electric provider. After electric deregulation, electric consumers will be able to choose their Electricity Provider from a handful of Providers in the state.

�One thing that would not change is that (regardless of which provider you choose and which electric rate plan you are on) the reliability of your service will not change.

Other states have Deregulated Electricity, like Texas, and it works out for everyone. When you have 10 companies to choose from for your rate plans and customer service options, it makes it cheaper for everyone. People who want to keep their services through their current company can, but those customers who wish the switch their service will have the option to do so. Competition=Lower Rates
