Cedar Hill energy rates

Cedar Hill is a suburb of Dallas situated to the southwest. In 2019 estimates, the population of Cedar Hill was just under 50,000, but this little Texas city really cooks when it comes to energy use. Cedar Hill’s goal is to be a premier city where families and businesses flourish in a safe and clean environment. Its green initiatives have earned news coverage. 

Currently, residents and business owners in Cedar Hill can choose from a number of energy providers in the area, all because of deregulation. Ready to exercise your power to choose? Enter your ZIP code above to see what prices and options are available. 

Cedar Hill energy deregulation

The Texas Senate deregulated the energy market for the majority of the state in 2002. This legislation, which included Cedar Hill, provided customers with the option to select their own energy providers. The goal was to offer consumers more reasonable electricity prices and create a healthy competitive marketplace among many suppliers.

Prior to deregulation, one utility company serviced each area, with the state moderating rates. The problem: There was no incentive to lower the rates because there was no competition. Deregulation changed that, creating healthy competition.

Oncor Electric is the utility that serves Cedar Hill. That means that Oncor transmits and distributes electricity, regardless of the chosen electric provider. It’s also the company you alert when experiencing an outage.

The Choose Energy marketplace offers plenty of plan options, including no-deposit electricity choices, helps you figure out how to move your electricity services, and walks you through how to switch providers

Cedar Hill renewable energy

No other state comes close to the Lone Star State when it comes to generating electricity from wind, of which Texas produces nearly 30 percent of the U.S. supply. Cedar Hill is certainly on board with these initiatives.

In 2011, Cedar Hill installed a solar PV system atop the Government Center building, a project  that now saves the city more than $21,000 a year in electricity costs. A year later, Cedar Hills activated a 4.5 kW wind turbine system that was fully funded by grants and now saves residents money. In fact, Oncor pays the city for using renewable energy technology.

Choose Energy partners with many Cedar Hill renewable energy suppliers, which makes it easy for residents to go green. A couple of popular green suppliers in the Cedar Hill area include Houston-based Chariot Energy and Iberdrola Texas
