Allen energy deregulation

How has deregulation affected Allen?

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

  • Texas residential electricity rates are nearly 9.5 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 26 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 23 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.

The Texas Senate deregulated the energy market for the majority of the Lone Star State on the first day of 2002. This legislation, which included Allen, has essentially provided customers with the option to select their own energy provider among a host of companies. The goal of this bill is to provide more reasonable electricity prices to consumers, as suppliers must compete for residents’ business.

Energy deregulation in Allen has created an electricity retail market. Residents can research and compare electricity plans and choose the supplier that offers them the most suitable service. By purchasing the right plan at the right time, residents of Allen can greatly cut down on energy costs. Enter your zip code above to see what is available in your area.

Allen utility companies & energy providers

Customers must be clear on the difference between what utility companies and energy providers do. Prior to the 2002 deregulation bill, one wire (utility) company in Allen controlled the whole process, from transmission and distribution of the energy to the sales and billing of energy plans. Now, that wires company does not handle the sales and billing. Multiple energy providers in Allen have taken over responsibility for sales and payment collection. These providers establish plan terms and prices. Since this part of the business is open to competition, residents can choose among many competing suppliers.

Oncor Electric Delivery serves Allen as the main utility company. With over 7.5 million consumers, only five other electric delivery companies serve more residents in the United States than Oncor. While customers don’t have the option to choose among utility companies in Allen, they can choose from a number of suppliers. With so many, it can be hard for consumers to know which Allen energy suppliers to trust. Fortunately, Choose Energy has partnered with preferred providers in the area, including Bounce Energy and TriEagle Energy.  Residents can guarantee that they get the best rate by assessing the market and purchasing the most affordable plan.
