Midland energy deregulation

How has Texas energy deregulation affected Midland? Here’s what the latest statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration show:

  • Texas residential electricity rates are 10 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 23 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 16 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.

When the Senate approved a bill in early 2002, a majority of the state, including Midland, deregulated the energy market. This meant one company no longer dominated the energy market. It now functions more like a retail market where customers shop for the best service and lowest rates.

Deregulation in Midland means residents and businesses have the power to choose their energy provider. With the free Choose Energy marketplace, you can compare plans and rates available in your area to find what works for you. Enter your ZIP code above to get started.

Midland utility companies & energy providers

In Midland, the utility company delivers electricity and manages power lines, while energy providers sell plans to consumers. If you experience a power outage, contact your utility company, not your provider.

Midland used to fall into the service area of two utility companies: Oncor Electric Delivery and Sharyland Utilities. However, now all previous Sharyland customers are also served by Oncor. Oncor is the largest utility company in Texas with over 7.5 million customers.

Residents and businesses also have a large choice of energy providers, and can shop reliable brands such as Reliant Energy4Change Energy, and TriEagle Energy to find the right rate and plan for them.

Midland renewable energy

Texas has been very productive in the traditional energy sector. Recent statistics indicate that the state will have similar success in the green energy field, as it’s currently number one in wind power production.

Midland’s abundant land and sunny climate make it a great place for wind and solar energy manufacturing. Additionally, consumers also have a choice in selecting the best supplier of green energy in Midland, such as Amigo Energy and Green Mountain Energy, to meet their needs.
