Deregulation opened up a $500 Billion opportunity for sales people with entrepreneurial acumen to build their own business. However, with no special training or knowledge required it’s also opened the floodgates to a slew of ‘energy experts’ that may not have the expertise that they claim and do not have your best interests at heart.
One of the problems with deregulated energy is it lacks transparency and regulation. It is also a market few understand. The most common sharp business practices include:
Hiding restrictive conditions in the small print and creating punitive contract conditions like exorbitant cancellation fees.
Signing you over against your will or informed knowledge (known as slamming)
Locking you into a fixed contract that increases rates over time
Luring you in with artificially low rates that then increase substantially over a very short time period
While these occur more in the residential energy sphere, small businesses with limited resources can fall victim to these underhanded selling methods.
The main problem here is that these companies represent the retail energy provider. Retail energy providers (REPs) are not power companies. They are the middle men who buy power in the wholesale market. Diversegy is different. Diversegy’s cornerstone is that we represent the customer in the energy buying process.
