Odessa energy deregulation

In 2002, Senate Bill 7 officially restructured the energy sector by deregulating the electric retail market. The legislation included Odessa and the majority of the state. This changed the industry by allowing competition in the sale of electricity to residents. The thought was that more choices for consumers and more competition among suppliers would ultimately lower electricity costs.

Energy deregulation in Odessa affords residents the option to shop for providers. While a primary utility service in Odessa still manages the distribution of electricity to homes, multiple providers sell electricity plans to Odessa residents. The providers establish the rates, and competition for business from residents helps maintain reasonable price levels. If consumers carefully research plans and prices, they can lower their electricity bill by simply purchasing the best plan. Start your research now on electricity rates in Odessa.

Odessa utility companies & energy providers

Since deregulation, the restructured energy market works differently. Previously, the Odessa wires company (or utility service) controlled all of the operations -- transmission, delivery and billing -- within the energy sector. Now, energy providers in Odessa set prices and term conditions, then sell those plans to residents. Residents of Odessa get a choice of supplier, as there are a host of supplier companies in the city competing for business. One utility service, though, still controls the transmission of electricity and delivery to residences.

It's important to note that Odessa does not have multiple utility companies, so consumers do not have a choice of utility service. Oncor Electric Delivery Company serves Odessa as the main utility service zone. The company has over 7.5 million customers and is one of the nation's largest utility companies. There are multiple Odessa energy suppliers, though. Many residents may not be familiar with some of the suppliers, which does not make the task of choosing a good plan easy. Choose Energy simplifies that task by connecting residents to only the city's most trusted electricity providers, like TriEagle and Bounce Energy.

Odessa renewable energy

Ranking fifth overall in net generation of renewable electricity, the state of Texas has been at the forefront of green energy production. The Lone Star State is also the top producer of wind power.

Odessa has implemented strategies and programs to go green as well. Keep Odessa Beautiful is a local group that emphasizes reducing waste and maintaining the city's beauty. Odessa College, a local school, also actively promotes green living and environmental responsibility. Locals can also use green electricity in their residence. Choose Energy has partnered with preferred Odessa renewable energy suppliers, such as Amigo Energy and Green Mountain Energy, to make going green easy for residents.
