Arlington energy rates likely to increase
Texas energy rates are expected to rise this summer, according to the Houston Chronicle. Why? Because of the closings of three coal-fired electricity plants and slowdowns in the openings of natural gas and wind facilities. That means power reserves have decreased dramatically. Peak summer usage will put even more pressure on electricity supply.
What can Arlington residents do about it? Consumers who have fixed-rate plans that extend through summer will be shielded from the market price volatility. Those on variable- or indexed-rate plans are subject to those increases. That's why locking in rates before they go up could be a great option. ChooseEnergy.com will show you the best plans. As of Feb. 27, on residential electricity provider offered a 12-month fixed rate at 6.3 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). Variable- and indexed-rate plans started at 8.3 cents/kWh and 11.2 cents/kWh.

Arlington energy deregulation
When the Texas Senate approved the restructuring of the energy sector in 2002, deregulation went into effect for a large section of the state, including Arlington. Deregulation means that, although one utility service still handles delivering electricity to homes, various providers establish rates and plan terms. Arlington consumers can choose which company's rates and services they like best.
Energy deregulation in Arlington has enabled electricity sales competition among suppliers. This has allowed energy rates in deregulated areas of the Lone Star State to remain below the nation's average. Residents of Arlington can now be involved in the purchase of their electricity. Through some research and analysis, Arlington customers can obtain the lowest electricity price the market has to offer. Why wait? Check out the area's rates now.
