Electric deregulation costing New Jersey families and businesses

Story after story from states with deregulated electricity markets make the same point: deregulation costs families and businesses.

Here’s a recent example from New Jersey: “Frigid winter sends electric prices soaring for NJ customers who switched power suppliers” (from the Newark Star Ledger, 2/23/2014)

Drew Bradford, a “66-year-old Bedminster man who lives on a fixed income, said his January and February bills from New Jersey Gas & Electric [a deregulated electric supplier] were 235 percent and 500 percent more than what JCP&L [one of the state’s regulated electric utilities] would have charged. That translated to about $100 and $250 more than what he would have paid. “
