How has deregulation affected Rowlett?

In the days of energy regulation, utility companies in Texas had a monopoly on their individual parts of the state. Residents were required to purchase an energy plan with their area’s utility company, and the company could set the electric rate at whatever they wanted.

This changed in 2002 when the state legislature passed a bill to deregulate a majority of the state’s energy market. This opened the market to competition among providers, driving down costs for consumers. Today, Rowlett residents can shop for an energy plan, comparing plans, rates, and providers to find the option that best suits their needs.
