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 11.4 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 28.33 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 26 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas generates the most electricity of any state from wind energy.
  • 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 the electric rates in Denton, or anywhere in Texas, before they buy a plan or lock in a rate.

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 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.

Denton electric rates in my area

To explore the best electricity rates in your area, you’ll need to enter ZIP code.

As you scroll through plans, keep in mind that electricity providers offer different rates in different areas. This is because of utility transmission charges, which cover the cost of transferring the electricity from the facility where it is generated to your home. For example, you could have the same energy plan as someone you know who lives in a different town. However, your utility transmission charges may differ based on your locations.
