Bedford energy rates

Bedford  is a suburb of Dallas and Fort Worth, located in northeast Tarrant County, in an area known as the Mid-Cities. With its hot, dry climate, Bedford residents and businesses require affordable and efficient energy. Not surprisingly, most energy in Bedford is used for cooling, and the 235 days of sunshine each year help generate electricity with solar.

Bedford electricity rates fluctuate throughout the year, but residents and businesses negotiate energy contracts when they sign up with their suppliers and are provided with a fixed rate throughout the term. Terms are available anywhere from six to 36 months. The cooler winter months are generally the least expensive time to sign up, with spring and summer rates being higher.

Bedford energy deregulation

In 2002, Texas State Legislature deregulated the electricity industry, a move that opened up the state’s electricity supply to competition. Bedford is no exception. 

Deregulation means that consumers have the power to choose among a number of different suppliers from which to purchase their electricity. In Bedford, Oncor Electric is the utility provider that transmits and distributes electricity, regardless of electric supplier. 

Prior to deregulation, one utility company serviced each area, with the state controlling rates. The problem with that system? No incentive to lower the rates meant no competition. Deregulation helped create a natural competition.

Energy deregulation in Texas has created growth in renewable energy and competition between suppliers, and even different types of energy. Texas also generates the most electricity of any state from wind and fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy. This keeps Bedford electricity prices relatively low. 

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