A new report from S&P Global finds that residential prices have risen by less than the national average increase of 53.6% in the 14 states where electricity prices are competitively determined for all retail customers. The study compares prices from 2010 to 2018 in states with restructured markets with states with partially restructured and regulated electricity markets.
The number of jurisdictions with residential electric prices below the national average was unchanged for partially restructured markets and was little changed for regulated markets when comparing 2018, 2010 and 2000, according to S&P Global. In Tier 1 states - those with competitive retail pricing - there were six jurisdictions with lower than average prices in 2018 compared to three in 2010 and four in 2000.
