With a climate that is very dry and often very hot, Bedford requires access to affordable and efficient energy for both residents and businesses. In Bedford, the vast majority of the energy is used for cooling, and the 235 days of sunshine each year help generate electricity through solar systems.

Bedford energy deregulation
On January 1, 2002, Texas passed legislation to deregulate the energy market in most of Texas; this includes the Bedford area. Deregulation means that consumers now have the option to choose among a number of different suppliers from which to purchase their electricity. In Bedford, Oncor Electric is still the utility provider charged with the transmission and distribution of electricity, regardless of which electric supplier it is purchased from. Prior to deregulation, only one utility company serviced each area, with the state controlling rates. The problem with that system was that there was no incentive to lower rates, because there was no competition. Deregulation was implemented to create natural competition among companies.
Energy deregulation in Texas has spurred growth in renewable energy and competition between suppliers, and even different types of energy, which keeps costs relatively low in Bedford. Researching the suppliers and finding those with the best plans can assist residents further in saving on energy costs.
