Deregulation has started to make things exciting again. Sure, the first wave of information about deregulation brought a flurry of activity (and uncertainty). But then legal challenges in several states caused some delays, and many started to lose interest in all the hype surrounding deregulation.
With deregulation now a reality in California, new opportunities are being revealed that could help others around the country. Right now, the hot new opportunity is metering. Whoever thought that a meter could change the way you do business? But a variety of companies out there are looking at the meter as a way to help building owners get better electricity rates, refine billing practices, lower energy consumption, and improve maintenance procedures.
