Power Deregulation in VT?

November 13, 2013

Vermont is considering deregulating electricity. The chairman of the House’s top energy committee, Rep. Tony Klein (an East Montpelier Democrat), thinks it may be time to deregulate the utility market to allow the state’s largest consumers to negotiate electricity pricing with suppliers. He presented a proposal for a program on Tuesday at the Capitol Plaza Hotel and Commerce Center in Montpelier, VT. If the proposal is accepted, it would allow those large consumers to potentially take advantage of the savings competitive supply (as opposed to regulated markets) can offer.
