Dallas energy deregulation

Deregulation has changed Dallas – and the entire state of Texas – in many ways, and has greatly benefited consumers. The latest statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration show:

  • Texas residential electricity rates are 10 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 23 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 16 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas generates (by far) the most electricity of any state from wind.
  • Texas generates the fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy.

Texas deregulation began in early 2002 and changed the way the energy industry works. Instead of buying from one utility company – a monopoly – Dallas residents and businesses can now choose an electricity plan that fits their needs from a pool of energy providers. 

There are many providers and plans to choose from, and that’s where Choose Energy comes in. We’ll help you sort through the options to find what works for you. Enter your ZIP code above to see cheap rates in your area and start switching. Remember, however, that if you’re currently in a contract, you could face an early termination fee if you sign up for a new plan.

Dallas utility companies & energy providers

It’s important to know exactly what energy suppliers and utility companies in Dallas do for residents. Before deregulation, the utility company transmitted, distributed and sold the energy to consumers. Now, the utility service transmits and distributes the energy, and energy providers in Dallas handle sales and payments.

This means that your utility company still delivers your energy and maintains power lines, so that’s who you call if you have a power outage. Most Dallas residents live in the Oncor Electric Delivery service area. Oncor serves more than 7.5 million customers and is America’s sixth largest electric distributor. 

When it comes to Dallas energy retail electric providers, or REPs, consumers have a variety of choices. Choose Energy partners with the best providers, such as TriEagle Energy, TXU Energy and Reliant Energy. More choices help create competition among providers and better prices for the customer. The best way to find the most competitive rate is to shop and review a variety of the services offered by each provider. Enter your ZIP code to look for the best rates with these and other REPs.

Dallas renewable energy

Texas is a leader in renewable energy, especially where wind power is concerned. The Lone Star State’s wind energy production outpaces every other state. It’s also up-and-coming for solar, with installations growing every year.

As one of the state’s biggest cities, Dallas clearly has a demand for green energy. Luckily, residents have plenty of deregulated options to choose from so their homes can go green. Choose Energy has partnered with reliable Dallas renewable energy suppliers such as Amigo Energy and Green Mountain Energy so you can shop green plans in our marketplace.
