What we know about energy rates in Texas:

Everything's bigger in Texas, including the grid and the bills.

Running the 2nd largest state in the country takes a lot of energy and Texas reigns king as the largest energy producer of crude oil, electricity and natural gas.

Since 2002, over 9 million Texans have switched to competitive electric supply. An average-sized, Texan home typically spends over $1,700 a year on electricity bills alone.
