In 2002, electric service was deregulated in the state of Texas. Until then, one utility company serviced each area, and the state controlled rates. The system created no incentive for companies to lower rates. Texas deregulation changed that and helped create a natural competition.
That’s good news for consumers in Belton. Deregulation means that energy consumers have the power to choose among a number of different suppliers from which to purchase electricity.
