- Texas residential electricity rates are nearly 9.5 percent lower than the national average.

Texas deregulated its energy market in 2002, allowing consumers to choose their energy provider from a pool of companies. The hope was that this power to choose would result in competitive pricing between companies and lower energy bills for consumers.
Because of deregulation, Edinburg residents are no longer limited to a single energy provider. Like shopping for a reliable and affordable refrigerator, consumers in Edinburg can choose the best and most reasonably priced energy supplier.
Edinburg utility companies and energy providers
Deregulation in Edinburg has also affected operations for utility services. The three main components – transmission, distribution, and sales – used to be facilitated by the same utility service. While the utility company still facilitates energy transmission and distribution, consumers can now choose between numerous energy suppliers in Edinburg. Energy suppliers sell to the consumer and collect payments each month while setting the prices for their services.
Consumers have their choice among many Edinburg energy suppliers. With so many options, it can be difficult to know which service is best for you. Choose Energy has entered into cooperative agreements with some of the most reliable companies, such as Reliant Energy, TriEagle Energy, and 4Change Energy.
Edinburg renewable energy
Texas is one of the country’s biggest producers of wind power generation and has reached number five in the category of net generation of renewable energy. Edinburg has made its own efforts to follow in the path of the state, working to generate more renewable energy resources.
