Understanding deregulation in Texas

The state of Texas deregulated its energy market back in 2002, which gave electric retailers a chance to sell energy plans directly to Texas residents. In turn, customers didn’t have to rely on their utility for electricity plans.


Deregulation gives you the freedom to choose your electricity plan from many different retailers. In a deregulated market, electricity providers sell you electricity while utilities handle deployment and any infrastructure improvements. If any issues arise with your utility, contact the Public Utilities Commission to intervene on your behalf.

Difference between a utility company and an energy provider

There are distinct differences between energy providers and utility companies. As mentioned, electricity providers sell energy plans to residents and businesses. This is where you can use the Choose Energy marketplace as a one-stop-shop to compare electricity plans.
Meanwhile, Texas utility companies deliver power between the provider and the customer. Utilities also respond to power outages and fix any problems arising from deployment. When a power outage occurs, you should contact Texas-New Mexico Power, not your energy provider.
