Frank Lacey guest authored the Retail Energy Supply Association’s (“RESA”) regular blog.  His article can be found on  RESA’s Website.  In this article, he explains why the regulatory micromanagement under the guise of “consumer protections” in gas and electricity markets actually hurts the majority of consumers.  The “protections” encourage customers to explore competitive options when prices are highest.  At the same time, they discourage consumer engagement when prices are lowest.
