Opinion: Suppliers Respond to AARP on Retail Energy Competition

April 1, 2021

Maryland Matters published a commentary last month from Tammy Bresnahan, the director of advocacy for AARP Maryland regarding the “deregulated” retail energy market (“Annapolis Showdown on Utility Rip-Offs,” Feb. 23). The Retail Energy Supply Association (RESA) vehemently disagrees with this article and believes such assertions from AARP are not only misleading, but dangerous. Bresnahan’s statement, “The Senate Finance Committee has voted the bill out with an amendment favorable to the industry,” is both inaccurate and misleading. The fact is the committee’s amendments provide that any customer who is receiving energy assistance will receive a rate at or below the utilities’ prices and the elimination of early termination fees.
