Energy Deregulation gives Texans the power to choose
What electricity deregulation does is allow consumers to choose their own electric company and encourage free-market competition. Texas moved to full electricity deregulation in 1999, splitting the power sector into three main components: generation providers, transmission owners, and retail companies. Today, the state is mostly a deregulated electricity market. However, there are still areas of Texas that remain regulated markets.
PowertoChoose.org is the official website of The Public Utility Commissions (PUC) for comparing electric rates in deregulated communities.
PowertoChoose.org allows retail electricity providers to list some of their electricity plans and offers. PowertoChoose.org is a useful service, however, there are also a few challenges for its users.
Since the commission has implemented a provision limiting each Retail Electric Provider (REP) to only five plans posted on PowerToChoose.org you will find only a partial list of the plans offered in the state.
PowertoChoose.org lists the advertised electricity rates at three specific consumption levels 500 KWh / 1000 KWh / 1500 KWh. but doesn`t do any math to help users estimate their actual costs based on their real consumption. This leaves consumers with all the hard work of opening and inspecting every single Electricity Facts Label (or EFL) posted with every single plan on Power to Choose.
Retail Electric Providers have the freedom, as participants in a competitive market (just like companies selling cellphones, cars and any other consumer product), to make offers intended to attract and keep customers. This includes credits, minimum fees, penalties for too much or too little usage and more that can lead to complex offerings.
