Retail Energy Supply Association of Maryland (RESAMD.org)
If you live in the Washington or Baltimore Metropolitan Areas, you can't help but notice the television commercials for a new association committed to the development and furthering of competitive retail energy markets in the United States. The Retail Energy Supply Association of Maryland (RESA Maryland) is a broad and diverse group of retail energy suppliers who share the common vision that competitive retail energy markets deliver a more efficient, customer-oriented outcome than regulated utility structure.

We agree with RESA's mission.
