About 10 years ago, Texas became deregulated. In other words, Texans throughout different locations have the right and the ability to choose the best discount electricity rates and providers of their own for their homes and businesses.
However, residents of the state capital aren’t so lucky.
Austin is full of rich Texas history, but those living there don’t have the ability to choose because this city is not a deregulated area. Neither is San Antonio.
Our forefathers fought for our freedom at the Alamo, and not even residents of that great city itself have the ability to choose who provides their electricity.
Obviously this isn’t a deal breaker because there are so many great things about these two cities but one would think they would follow the footsteps of other Texas cities.
I personally like having the ability to choose, and not just simply leaving it up to the government.
Some might argue having too many choices is a bad thing. Not knowing how to look out for hidden fees or what to look for when signing up with a new provider can get confusing.
That’s why we suggest you go through an energy consultant instead of someone who works directly for an electricity company.
If you’re living in a deregulated area and want some help, or you’re not sure if you live in a deregulated area, just type your zip code into our compare box, select ‘commercial’ or ‘residential’ and hit compare.
For those of you who are in a deregulated area, you will see the cheapest rates offered through Discount Electricity, and you can sign up with whichever deal best fits your situation at your earliest convenience.
If you’re looking for a long-term-residential rate, be sure to select a fixed rate because it will be more consistent and you’ll know what to expect from month-to-month.
For further information, feel free to give us a call anytime at 1-800-971-4020 and one of our expert energy consultants will be more than happy to help you out with all of your electricity needs.
As for residents in San Antonio, Austin and other regulated areas, let us know what your preference is. Do you want to have a say in who provides your electricity?
