In 2002, Texas deregulated electric services in 2002, giving most residents the power to choose their electricity provider. Before that, one utility company serviced each area, and the state controlled rates, a system that didn’t give consumers choice. Texas deregulation changed that and helped create natural competition among suppliers.
