Moving to Texas?
Are you one of the 1,000 people per day that move to Texas? Things in the Texas market are different than much of the United States. In 1999, the Texas Legislature passed a law that made it possible for consumers to choose their own electric company (deregulation). The new law was passed to encourage free market competition and lower prices. Not all of Texas is deregulated; some municipalities and cooperatives were not required to deregulate, so customers in those areas may not have choice.
