Bedford energy rates

Bedford is a suburb of Dallas and Fort Worth, located in northeast Tarrant County. With its hot, dry climate, Bedford residents and businesses need affordable, efficient energy. Most energy in Bedford is used for cooling. The 235 days of sunshine each year help generate electricity with solar.

Bedford electricity rates fluctuate throughout the year. But residents negotiate energy prices when they sign up with their suppliers. That means they pay fixed supply rates 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. Keep in mind that you could pay an early termination fee if you end your contract before the term expires.

Bedford energy deregulation

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

Deregulation means that consumers have the power to choose among a number of different suppliers. But they only have one choice for a utility – the company that transmits the power to their home. In Bedford, Oncor Electric is the utility provider, regardless of electric supplier. 

Prior to deregulation, the utility company also provided the power supply in each area, with the state controlling rates. The problem with that system? No competition mean no incentive to lower rates. Deregulation helped create a natural competition.

Energy deregulation in Texas has fostered growth in renewable energy and competition between providers. Texas also generates the most electricity of any state from wind and regularly produces the fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy. This keeps Bedford electricity prices relatively low. 

Overall, Texas residential electricity rates are 11.4 percent lower than the national average and commercial electricity rates are about 28 percent lower than the national average.
