Understanding energy deregulation in Texas

Electricity utilities in the U.S. follow many different structures, which vary by state. Some states encourage market competition among energy suppliers, giving the consumers more choice. This is called deregulation

Five million residents in Texas have had the choice of electricity provider since the state was deregulated in 2002.

Put simply, deregulation means Texas electricity customers – or at least about 85 percent of them – have the power to choose the company that supplies the energy they use. These companies are called retail electricity providers (REPs), and they are different from utilities such as Texas-New Mexico Power. 

What’s the difference between a utility and a provider?

Texas-New Mexico Power is a utility, which means it’s the company that delivers electricity to your home. Utilities also maintain the electrical equipment in your area, so those companies respond to power outages and oversee repairs on downed power lines. 

Providers, in contrast, either generate or buy the energy and provide it to the utility for delivery. They also coordinate the process when you switch from one provider to another. These switches usually can be done without a technician visit to your home.

Which suppliers are available in Texas-New Mexico Power’s service area?

If you live in Texas-New Mexico Power’s service area, a variety of suppliers can provide your electricity, including Constellation, Direct Energy, First Choice Power, and 4Change Energy. Rates vary by supplier, so be sure to look into all of your options and compare electricity rates before deciding to make the switch.

Also, it’s important to understand how energy plans work before you commit to a new supplier. Check out our ultimate guide to energy plan lingo if you need clarification on the types of plans you can buy, various rate structures, contract lengths, and more.
