In 1997, Massachusetts deregulated its energy utility services, permitting ratepayers to choose their energy suppliers in an effort to reduce costs and improve service. Since then, the competitive supply market has offered the promise of lower rates and innovation but has also resulted in litigation over claims of unfair and deceptive business practices that cost individual residential consumers money.

In this program you will learn about the laws creating and regulating the competitive energy supply market for individual residential consumers and the current controversies balancing the benefits of competition against the potential for harm to residential consumers. The panelists will discuss their experiences on both sides of this issue and will touch on the Attorney General’s Office’s enforcement efforts and 2019 updated report, administrative practice and regulation at the Department of Public Utilities, and consumer protection and class action litigation.
