Benefits of Electricity Deregulation for Texas Residents
Thu. Jun 01, 2017 07:48 PM

Since the Texas energy market was deregulated in 2002, most parts of Texas have enjoyed a deregulated electricity market. Deregulation provides Texans with a great opportunity to save money on their electricity bills, as eligible consumers have the power to choose their electricity provider.

First, what is electricity deregulation? In a nutshell, deregulation takes a market served by one electricity company and opens it up for competition from multiple companies. This forces electricity companies to compete against each other, which fosters competitive pricing.

Electricity delivery is still handled by the same "poles and wires" company, but you buy electricity from a Retail Electricity Provider (REP) that handles customer service and billing. It's as simple as that.

Use the power that Texas deregulation has given you as a consumer and shop around for the best electric rates.  You can enter your zip code at Electricity Shopping to get the best rates.

So why switch electric companies? Here are the top reasons electricity deregulation is good for you: Pay less for electricity, find renewable energy options, get the best customer service and take advantage of promotions.
