Mesquite energy rates

Located to the east of Dallas, Mesquite has a population of about 144,000. Mesquite has been officially named by the state legislature the “Rodeo Capital of Texas,” and makes good on that promise every rodeo season with the Mesquite Championship Rodeo.

But Mesquite is also part of another unique aspect of the Lone Star State lifestyle: deregulated energy. Since 2002, Mesquite residents have had the freedom to choose between a number of energy providers offering different plans and prices instead of being confined to a single utility company. Greater competition means the chance to score a lower rate on a better plan when you’re shopping for Mesquite energy.

Mesquite energy deregulation

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 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.
  • Texas generates the fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy.

The idea behind energy deregulation is that it creates a competitive marketplace instead of a monopoly. In a regulated energy structure, utility companies control the prices and plans of their entire service area. Customers are unable to choose the company that supplies their energy and are confined to the utility.

 

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.

Mesquite utility companies & energy providers

In a deregulated energy market, the utility company is responsible for delivering the electricity through the power lines that they maintain. The utility company is also responsible for restoring power in the event of an outage. Meanwhile, energy providers coordinate with the utility to get electricity to the right homes and bill customers for the plan that they choose.

In Mesquite, Oncor Electric Delivery is the local utility company. Call Oncor if you have an issue with a power line or experience an outage. Meanwhile, there are dozens of energy providers to choose from, all offering a range of plans and prices. Choose Energy 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.

To find electricity rates in your area, enter your ZIP code above.

As you’re browsing through the options, keep in mind that energy providers offer different rates depending on your ZIP code. This is mostly because of utility transmission charges. This is what the local utility charges to transfer energy from the original facility where it was generated, through power lines, and to your home. So, if someone you know has the same plan as you but is charged a different rate, it’s because of utility transmission charges.
