The Deregulation of Electricity in Texas
On January 1, 2002, the Texas State Legislature decided to deregulate the electricity industry and open up the supply of electricity to competition.
Now, 85% of Texas energy consumers can choose their electricity service from a variety of retail electric providers (REPs). The current utility in the area still owns and takes care of the local power lines (and is the company to call in the event of a power outage) and is not subordinate to deregulation.
Customers served by cooperatives can choose an alternate retail provider only if the utility has “opted in” to deregulation.
