Galveston energy deregulation
On January 1, 2002, Texas passed a bill that deregulated the energy market. Although this may sound confusing, the bill is beneficial to consumers because it has led to less expensive energy rates. Prior to the passage of energy deregulation, a single company was responsible for transmitting, delivering, collecting payment and selling energy in Galveston. While this may seem like it makes the process simpler, it actually had the reverse impact because this single utility company had a monopoly on the energy market. This means that the energy company was free to charge any price it wanted. See prices in your area and make the choice that's right for you.
Energy deregulation in Galveston has resulted in more competition in the energy market because more companies are available for customers to choose from. This competition has led to more choice and reduced energy prices in Galveston and all of Texas. See what's available in Galveston today.
