How has deregulation affected Burleson?
Here’s what the latest statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration show:
- Texas residential electricity rates are nearly 9.5 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 26 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 23 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas generates the most electricity of any state from wind.
- Texas generates the fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy.
Burleson isn’t the only deregulated city in Texas. In fact, a majority of the market became deregulated in 2002, when Texas Senate Bill Number 7 was passed. What does that mean? In a regulated energy market, residents and businesses didn’t have a choice of energy supplier; they were automatically enrolled with their area’s utility company. With deregulation, the market became competitive. Various energy suppliers could lower prices or offer different plans to entice customers, which meant better deals for consumers.
Now, Burleson residents can shop for an energy plan like they would anything else, comparing plans and providers to find what works for them. See the latest rates from providers in your area.
Burleson utility companies & energy providers
Energy infrastructure in Burleson is still managed by a utility company, called Oncor Electric Delivery. Oncor is responsible for delivering the energy residents buy and maintaining power lines. This is who you call if you experience a power outage.
Meanwhile, residents buy the electricity that Oncor delivers from a retail energy provider. This is who bills you and coordinates your service with the utility company. There are many companies to choose from, but Choose Energy has partnered with a few of the most trusted, such as Reliant Energy, 4Change Energy and TriEagle Energy, so customers who shop in the marketplace can be sure to get reliable service.
Burleson renewable energy
Texas is a great place to consider a green energy plan. First in the country for its wind power industry, the Lone Star State’s deep dive into renewables is just beginning. It’s also making strides in solar power, currently fifth among all the states for solar energy generation.
For residents who want to go green, Burleson has a few options for renewably-sourced energy. Choose Energy’s partners Amigo Energy and Green Mountain Energy offer clean energy plans and options that allow residents to make their homes more environmentally-friendly.
