In 2002, Texas moved to deregulate the state’s energy industry. Until then, one utility company serviced each area in Texas. Rates were approved by the state. The system allowed no competition – no reason for rates to be kept low.
So deregulation – think of it as the power to choose among a number of different providers – has brought healthy competition.
One thing that didn’t change is the need for the utility, which is responsible for transmitting and distributing electricity regardless of which provider you choose. In Nacogdoches, the utility is Oncor. It’s also the company you’ll call with an outage or infrastructure concern, like a downed power line.
