Compare electricity rates in Odessa

Odessa energy rates

Odessa is a city located in western Texas with a population of about 120,000. The region goes through long, hot summers, and residents have a definite need for an affordable and efficient energy supply.

Since Texans have been under stay-at-home orders, residential electricity use is soaring, reports say. Additional usage results in higher bills, which means it makes sense to look for a new energy provider. Most Texas can change providers without a technician visiting their homes.

Odessa energy deregulation

How has Texas energy deregulation affected Odessa? 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.

In 2002, Senate Bill 7 officially restructured the energy sector by deregulating the retail electricity market. Energy suppliers in Odessa and elsewhere can now compete for business, meaning consumers have more choice in their electric plan.

The Choose Energy marketplace was created to make it easier for residents and businesses to find an energy plan that fits their needs. With so many rates and providers available it can be hard to choose, so the marketplace gives you the tools to narrow it down.

Odessa utility companies & energy providers

In deregulated areas, energy providers (or suppliers) sell electricity, but the area’s utility company delivers it to your home and maintains the power lines. You can choose your provider, but you cannot choose your utility.

Oncor Electric Delivery Company is the utility company for Odessa. Oncor serves over 7.5 million customers and it one of the country’s largest utility companies. If you have a power outage, call Oncor – not your electricity provider.

As for providers, Odessa residents and businesses have multiple options. Choose Energy works with trusted electricity providers such as TriEagle and Bounce Energy to make sure customers get reliable service at an affordable price.

Odessa renewable energy

The state of Texas has been at the forefront of green energy production as the top producer of wind power, and solar is not far behind.

With so much renewable energy flowing in the state, it is easy for Odessa consumers to go green. Green plans from both Amigo Energy and Green Mountain Energy  are available in the Choose Energy marketplace, and many other providers offer green energy add-ons.
