Round Rock energy deregulation

Texas energy markets were deregulated in January 2002. For cities like Round Rock, this meant opening up the list of electricity providers from a single city source – the local utility – to multiple private companies serving Round Rock. It also means residents are often asked to sign energy contracts for 12 or 24 months, something they may not have been accustomed to in the past. 

For Texas at large, the deregulation of energy has led to some significant changes in the way electricity is priced. This can result in cheap electricity in Round Rock. Here are some facts about they way energy deregulation has informed Texas energy companies (and some things to keep in mind as you search the best electric company near me): 

  • Residential electricity rates in the Lone Star State are about 10 percent lower than the national average.
