The Woodlands energy deregulation

How has deregulation impacted The Woodlands?

Here are the latest statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration:

  • Texas residential electricity rates are nearly 9.5 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 26 percent lower than the national average.
  • Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 23 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.

Texas deregulated its energy market in 2002, allowing consumers to choose their energy provider from a pool of companies. The expectation was that this power to choose would result in competitive pricing between companies and lower energy bills for consumers.

Signing up for an energy plan is like shopping for anything else. Because you’re no longer limited to a single service, you can choose the best and most reasonably priced energy supplier. See what suppliers in your area are offering.

The Woodlands utility companies & energy providers

Deregulation in The Woodlands has altered the operational blueprint for utility services.

These same energy providers also set the prices for their services.

Many newcomers to Texas find this process confusing, but Choose Energy is here to make it easier. Choose Energy will guide you through this process and find a plan with a trusted energy supplier at a price fits your budget.
