How has deregulation impacted Mission?

It all started in 2002, when Texas deregulated its energy market. Deregulation gives the majority of the Lone Star State the power to choose energy suppliers from a pool of companies. The idea: Competition would cause energy providers to lower prices and, in turn, drive down energy costs for consumers.
