Avoid big spikes for Fort Worth energy rates
Fort Worth, Texas, like the rest of the state, could be headed for large increases in electricity rates this summer, according to the Houston Chronicle. The state's power reserves are increasing drastically because of delays in opening wind and natural gas facilities and recent closings of three coal-fired generation plants. When supply is tight, rates go up.
The good news: Residents can mitigate or even escape the expected rate hikes by signing up for fixed-rate electricity plans that last through the summer (if they don't already have a fixed-rate plan extending through the period). For example, on Feb. 27, one Choose Energy residential electricity provider offered a 12-month fixed rate at 6.3 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). Variable-rate and indexed-rate plans, which are subject to market fluctuations, start at 8.3 cents/kWh and 11.2 cents/kWh, respectively, and that's before any of the expected increases.

Fort Worth energy deregulation
Energy deregulation in Texas was implemented in early 2002 with the approval of Senate legislation. While one utility company still handles the generation and transmission of electricity, customers can select among various providers. Additionally, residents have options for different plan lengths, as well as a choice between a fixed rate or variable rate plan. Now that consumers can shop for the best services from suppliers, they have the ability to save money through research and the comparison of different plans. Energy deregulation in Fort Worth has given residents more involvement in choosing their energy provider. Furthermore, competition between energy providers helps rates to stay reasonable since customers have the freedom to change providers if they are not satisfied.
