Baytown energy deregulation

Texas deregulated the energy industry in 2002, ending a system in which one utility company serviced each area in Texas, with the state controlling rates. But that system didn’t allow consumers access to better rates.

Here are some facts since Texas began deregulation:

  • Residential electricity rates are 10 percent lower than the national average.
  • Commercial electricity rates are nearly 23 percent lower than the national average.
  • Industrial electricity rates are nearly 16 percent lower than the national average.

Deregulation is a big word but a simple concept. It means that energy consumers have the power to choose among a number of different suppliers to find the best electricity rates in Baytown. 

In Baytown, the utility is Oncor Electric Delivery. It transmits and distributes electricity to your home or business, regardless of which supplier you choose.
