Deregulation of electric utilities

I have a question. A few years ago, I attended a gathering here in Santa Barbara to learn the pros of electric utility deregulation, a gathering that was well attended by enviros, who supported deregulation entirely. There were graphs and charts of benefits to the consumer: lower rates, better service, stuff like that.
Am I dreaming? I think not. So my question is this: Where are the enviros (one of which I was and am) now that deregulation has been found out to be evil incarnate?
