Conroe energy deregulation

How has deregulation affected Conroe?

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.

The Lone Star State jumped into the deregulated energy market in 2002, when the state legislature passed a bill to deregulate a majority of the state. This meant that many Texas cities, including Conroe, were now facing a choice among a variety of energy providers as opposed to the one utility company they used to be confined to. Deregulation opened the market to competition for customers, driving down prices for consumers and increasing the variety of energy plans available.

Now, Conroe residents can compare rates and providers until they find something that suits their needs. The Choose Energy 24/7 online marketplace is set up to help them do this simply, with the most current rates for the area and plans only from trusted providers with reliable service.

Conroe utility companies & energy providers

CenterPoint Energy is the utility company in Conroe. However, energy deregulation changed the way utility companies operate. While they still exist, they now only handle electricity delivery and infrastructure maintenance. This means that CenterPoint is who you call to report or check an outage, but they are no longer the ones you purchase energy from.

Instead, Conroe residents buy electricity plans from a variety of retail providers. There are many to choose from, but Choose Energy has entered into cooperative agreements with some of the most trusted ones, such as Bounce Energy, Cirro Energy, and First Choice Power. When shopping in the marketplace, you can be sure you’re getting reliable service no matter what you choose.
