Cedar Hill energy deregulation

How has deregulation affected Cedar Hill?

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 deregulated its energy market in 2002. In short, this bill puts the power in the hands of Cedar Hill customers, as it lets residents and business owners pick their own energy supplier from a virtual marketplace of companies.

Prior to energy deregulation, the utility company had a virtual monopoly and could set any price they wanted for energy. Now, energy deregulation has given customers more choice while driving down their monthly energy bill.

Energy deregulation can be compared to shopping for a new car, since consumers can choose to purchase the same exact vehicle from different dealerships based on price. With energy deregulation, consumers can now do the same by shopping for the same services from many companies with different prices. Check out local prices now!
