Texas deregulated energy in 2002, though it only affects about 85 percent of the state. Before deregulation, one energy company – a utility – serviced each area, and the state of Texas had the last word on rates. Consumers had no way to shop rates.
Many get confused by the term deregulation. It simply means that energy consumers have the power to choose among a number of different suppliers.
But there are still utilities – responsible for transmitting and distributing electricity to your area, regardless of which supplier you choose. In Paris, Oncor is the utility. If you have an outage or spot a downed power line, you’ll call Oncor.
Choose Energy can help you sort through and select the best electricity rates in Paris. The Choose Energy marketplace provides filers to help sort rates by price, term length, and rate type – fixed or variable. It also provides choices for no-deposit electricity plans and helps when you want to move your electricity services or switch providers.
