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 11.4 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 28.33 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 26 percent lower than the national average.
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. Instead, 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. Enter your ZIP code above to see the best electric company Burleson offers in your area.
