Abilene energy deregulation

How has deregulation affected Abilene?

Here’s what the latest statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration show:

  • Texas residential electricity rates are nearly 10 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 23 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 16 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas generates the most electricity of any state from wind.
  • Texas generates the fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy.

Legislation at the start of 2002 officially deregulated energy for most of Texas, including Abilene. This effectively created competition in the energy market and gave the consumer more choices in power companies, causing the energy market to operate much like the retail market.

Why is energy deregulation in Abilene beneficial to the customer? With deregulation, consumers have more than one provider selling energy plans. Due to this increased competition, rates are decreasing.

Customers can shop around and select a plan that saves them money on energy with the free Choose Energy marketplace. To see available options, enter your ZIP code above.
