So, what would electrical restructuring even look like?
How would it positively impact commercial and industrial consumers?
AERO is following the open market model first established when Oklahoma deregulated natural gas in the mid-80s. It's a proven model that has allowed for significant benefits for those organizations that have taken advantage of it.
This program is only available to commercial and industrial customers, NOT residential. Choice of who you buy your electricity from will create competition, resulting in lower prices and perhaps, more importantly, price certainty. Electrical restructuring will allow you to lock in or hedge a price certain for a specific period of time.
If you happen to be a commercial or industrial customer with multiple locations, there could potentially be an added advantage of being able to aggregate loads from each facility and pay one monthly bill. This would create greater accounting efficiencies and savings.
It's important to note that nothing will physically change. The power purchased will still be delivered via the same wires (transmission and distribution) and the same services will be provided. The only thing that will change is the source of the generation.
