Energy Broker License.

In many deregulated states energy brokers are required to apply for licenses for electricity sales, natural gas sales, or both. Licensure in these states is regulated by each individual state’s public utility commission and sometimes a financial requirement, such as a bond, is needed. Other deregulated states, do not require energy brokers to be licensed in order to sell electricity or natural gas on behalf of retail energy suppliers. In the table below, we display all deregulated states and the broker licensing requirements:

  • License Required = an energy broker’s license is required to sell either commodity
  • No License Required = the state is deregulated for this commodity, but a broker’s license is not required to operate
  • Limited Deregulation = the state offer limited deregulation and due to this a broker’s license is not required
  • No Deregulation = the state is not deregulated for this particular commodity
