Allow households and businesses to buy the power they want

In many parts of the country, power companies and the fossil fuel lobby have made it illegal for homeowners or businesses to generate their own power or contract with their own power producer. With new energy sources like solar becoming increasingly cost-competitive, it is time to eliminate antiquated restrictions that prevent customers from purchasing the type of power they want. O’Malley will push for regulatory reforms to allow households and businesses to generate, or purchase, their preferred kind of energy—driving competition and fostering clean energy generation in communities across the country.
