The Retail Energy Supply Association (RESA) celebrated National Energy Shopping Day (June 21) and reminded consumers in 14 states and jurisdictions with energy choice to explore competitive energy offers.
"Observed annually on the first day of summer, National Energy Shopping Day was created to empower consumers with information and tools to shop for the best energy plan that meets their needs, budget and preferences. This is the fourth year this event has been nationally recognized and is published annually in Chase's Calendar of Events," RESA said
"National Energy Shopping Day is an opportunity for consumers to take control of their energy choices and make informed decisions that best meet their individual needs," commented Tracy McCormick, executive director, RESA. "By promoting competition and encouraging consumers to explore their energy options, consumers can reduce their electric and natural gas costs, choose a renewable energy product and lessen their environmental impact."
"National Energy Shopping Day, an initiative created by RESA, encourages individuals residing in states that offer consumer choice in electric and natural gas suppliers to find the ideal energy provider tailored to their specific requirements. Consumers may select a plan offering clean energy products or benefits such as smart home integration or energy efficiency programs for their homes or businesses," RESA said
RESA said that, according to a National Poll by Ragnar Research Partners, 74% of Americans want the power to choose their energy provider. Surprisingly, only 28% currently have the privilege to do so, RESA said
