Who's Fighting to Sell You Electricity
For small businesses, the headaches from power deregulation may be bigger than the savings. The best bet is to seek strength in numbers by joining some kind of buying club.
YOUR GOOD OLD UTILITY: Nobody's forcing you to switch. You can keep buying electricity from your regular power company and natural gas from your gas company. Their prices will often be the highest.
EXAMPLES: Pacific Gas & Electric; Consolidated Edison
