Del Rio energy rates

Del Rio is the county seat of Val Verde County in southwestern Texas, about 150 miles west of San Antonio on the Mexico border. The area is home to about 35,930 people, and known for the Laughlin Air Force Base. Residents of the city benefit from energy choice, which means they should look for the best Del Rio electricity rates.

That’s important because, as is true in the rest of Texas, it gets hot in Del Rio, and residents need air conditioning to survive the summer. Temperatures dip in winter, though, so residents need great prices for electric heating needs, too.

Del Rio energy deregulation

In January 2002, energy deregulation – or energy choice – became the law in most of the state. Prior to that, each area of Texas received electricity from the utility there, with the state regulating rates. The system prevented customers from shopping for better electricity rates. The move to deregulate energy changed that, creating natural competition among suppliers and giving customers more control over rates. 

In Del Rio, energy consumers have the power to choose among a number of different suppliers when they’re considering an electricity plan. 

AEP Texas Central is the utility. AEP is responsible for transmitting and distributing electricity to Del Rio homes and businesses. No matter which company you choose as your electricity supplier, you’ll call AEP in the event of an outage in Del Rio or infrastructure issues such as downed power lines. 

The Choose Energy marketplace presents a number of options for electricity customers, giving them the chance to filter by rate, plan term, and plan type. It also offers no-deposit electricity plans, and the site’s resources help when you want to move your electricity services or switch providers
