Carrollton energy deregulation

In 2002, deregulated energy was introduced in most of Texas. In the years since, Carrollton energy customers have enjoyed the power to choose their electricity provider. In Texas, these companies are known as retail electric providers (REPs). Before deregulation, residents and business owners had to buy energy from their utility companies.

Since then, electricity providers have made their energy plans more attractive to compete with other REPs and win more business from consumers. How have residential and commercial energy consumers have benefitted from this more competitive marketplace? By paying less for their electricity than they would in other parts of the country.

For instance, Texas residential electricity rates are currently over 11 percent lower than the U.S. average. Texas commercial rates are almost 30 percent lower.

Plus, Texas now generates the most electricity of any state from wind and is routinely among the top five states for the generation of electricity from solar energy.

Carrollton utility companies & energy providers

Your utility company is assigned based on where you live. Carrollton utilities are responsible for delivering electricity to your home or business, maintaining power lines in your area, and responding to power outages. In Carrollton, your utility company is Oncor Electric Delivery.

Instead of buying power from your utility company, you have the power to choose an electricity provider. Your electricity provider purchases wholesale energy from the utility and sells it to you as part of a plan. Some of the most popular Carrollton electricity providers include Direct Energy, Reliant Energy, and TXU Energy.

Carrollton renewable energy

The Lone Star State is one of the country’s biggest producers of green energy, generating the most wind electricity and the fifth-most solar electricity of any state.  

Every energy plan in Texas contains some renewable energy. But in addition to traditional energy plans, Texas energy consumers can choose from a number of all-green energy options to power their homes or businesses. For Carrollton residents, providers including  Gexa Energy, Green Mountain Energy, and Chariot Energy sell only green energy plans.

However, signing up for a renewable energy plan doesn’t necessarily mean that your home will be powered directly by green energy — unless you have a direct solar or wind power feed on your property. In most cases, your electricity provider will purchase green energy credits on your behalf to offset your energy usage. Usually, these credits come in the form of renewable energy credits (RECs) or carbon offsets.
