Dallas energy deregulation
Legislation in Texas passed on January 1, 2002, that deregulated the energy market for most of the Lone Star State, including Dallas. This means that, while a single utility provider will continue to deliver the electricity, consumers now have the ability to compare prices through several different suppliers. Customers can also choose from different variable-rate and fixed-rate plans. Energy deregulation in Dallas has stimulated competition between providers. This has led to lower rates relative to the national average.
Dallas utility companies & energy providers
It's important to know exactly what energy suppliers and utility companies in Dallas do for residents. Before deregulation, the utility company transmitted, distributed and sold the energy to consumers. Now, the utility service transmits and distributes the energy, and energy providers in Dallas handle sales and payments.
Oncor Electric Delivery is the primary utility service zone for Dallas residents. Oncor serves over 7.5 million customers and currently stands as America's sixth largest deliverer of electricity. When it comes to Dallas energy suppliers, though, consumers have a variety of choices. Choose Energy partners with only the best providers, such as TriEagle Energy, Reliant Energy, and Direct Energy. More choices help to create competition among providers and better prices for the customer. The best way to find the most competitive rate is to shop and review a variety of the services offered by each provider.
