Denton energy deregulation

How has deregulation affected Denton?

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 Texas energy market was deregulated for a majority of the state in 2002. This put a stop to utility monopolies and opened the market up to competition among many energy retailers. The idea behind deregulation is that customers now have more options for their electricity supply. Instead of being limited to one plan and one rate, they can compare before they buy.

Choose Energy’s 24/7 marketplace is set up to help Denton residents do just that, with current rates based on your ZIP code. Providers offer many different types of plans, including fixed and variable rates, green energy options, free nights and weekends, and more.

Denton utility companies & energy providers

Even with energy deregulation, Denton still has a utility company that maintains power lines and other infrastructure and makes sure electricity gets delivered properly. Denton’s utility is Oncor Electric Delivery, which is one of the largest electric utilities in the state. If you experience a power outage or other issue, contact Oncor, not your energy provider.

The energy provider is the company whose plan you choose. They are responsible for billing customers and coordinating with the utility company to make sure everything runs smoothly. There are many companies to choose from, but Choose Energy has cooperative partnerships with a few of Denton’s most trusted suppliers, including TXU Energy, Reliant Energy, and 4Change Energy. These are the suppliers shown in the Choose Energy marketplace, so customers can be sure they’re getting reliable service.

 

Denton renewable energy

The Lone Star State is a force to be reckoned with in the ongoing pursuit of renewable energy. It’s already top in the nation for wind power production, with thousands of turbines across the state. It’s also making great strides in solar energy, currently fifth in the country for solar power production.

Denton is at the forefront of this effort, voting to use 100 percent renewable energy by 2020 and partly powering its Apogee Stadium with on-site wind turbines. With all this in mind, it is more important than ever for residents to have green energy options for their homes. Choose Energy has partnered with renewable energy suppliers Green Mountain Energy and Amigo Energy to give Denton residents that choice.
