Baytown energy deregulation

Since 2002, most parts of Texas, including Baytown, have been deregulated, giving people in the Lone Star State the ability to select their electricity supplier. The introduction of deregulation completely changed the energy landscape in the state. Not only did it mean that Texans no longer had to buy power from their utility company, but it also spurred competition among providers, which led to more affordable rates.

These days, Texas energy customers enjoy lower bills than many other states. Compared to the national average, Texas residential electricity rates are 11.4% lower, and commercial rates are 28.3% lower.

At Choose Energy, our marketplace is designed to simplify the process of shopping for a new energy plan. We also have a resource library to answer common questions, such as:
