Archive of Retail Choice pages

This page serves as an archive of material produced by Energy Freedom Colorado during the days when we were researching, and ultimately came to support, the idea of individual retail choice (or restructuring, or "deregulation"), where individuals in the 14 restructured (or "deregulated") states can choose from any number of approved electricity suppliers, and utilities only operate the "poles and wires" but don't own electricity generation.

We no longer support individual retail choice, although we still support essentially all other aspects of increased consumer choice and competition in the electricity system.  See "Why we no longer support retail choice".

Background  —  beginners, start here!
