Energy deregulation in DeSoto

In 2002, Texas followed in the footsteps of states across the country that have introduced legislation to deregulate energy. In short, this gave residents in DeSoto and throughout Texas the ability to choose their own energy supplier from a pool of available companies. Before deregulation, the same utility company was responsible for the delivery, transmission, sales and payment of energy.

However, the goal of energy deregulation was to eliminate a single company from dominating the market by opening it up to multiple vendors. The idea behind energy deregulation was that it would result in more choice and less expensive energy bills for residents in DeSoto. Now, customers have energy choice in DeSoto and can go on a virtual shopping spree for their energy needs by comparing the prices and services offered by many different companies. Check out your choices in DeSoto.
