Deregulation in Brief

Historically, consumers had relied on their supply and delivery of natural gas from a single company known as the Local Distribution Company (LDC). This meant that consumers had no option in choosing their supplier.

How does energy deregulation affect you?

Deregulation separated the supply and distribution of natural gas. This means that you are now able to buy your natural gas at a competitive price for a fixed term from a licensed marketer such as Universal Gas & Electric. Your Local Distribution Company (LDC) such as DTE/MichCon or Consumers Gas, would still send you your bill, deliver the gas and provide 24 hour emergency service. The only difference you will notice is that Universal Gas & Electric, our name, will appear on your bill as your gas supplier.
