How has deregulation affected Mesquite?
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 generates the most electricity of any state from wind.
- Texas generates the fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy.
The idea behind energy deregulation is that it creates a competitive marketplace in place of a monopoly. In a regulated energy structure, utility companies control the prices and plans of their entire service area, and customers are left with next to no choice. Energy deregulation, passed by the state legislature in 2002, changed all that, opening up competition between a variety of energy providers to win customers with better plans and lower rates.
Now, finding an energy plan is like shopping for anything else. With nothing more than your ZIP code, Choose Energy’s online marketplace can show you the current rates available in your area.

Mesquite utility companies & energy providers
In a deregulated energy city, the utility company still plays a role. Instead of being responsible for the whole process, they’re now just responsible for delivering the electricity through the power lines that they maintain. Meanwhile, energy providers coordinate with the utility to get electricity to the right homes and bill their customers for the plan that they choose.
In Mesquite, Oncor Electric Delivery is the area utility company. This is who to call if you’re having an issue with a power line or are experiencing an outage. Meanwhile, there are dozens of energy providers to choose from, all offering range of plans and prices. Choose Energy only partners with trusted companies, including Bounce Energy, 4Change Energy, and Frontier Utilities, so you can be sure the providers you see in the marketplace are reliable.
