March Rate Reports on Texas' Deregulated Energy Market

As one of the most mature deregulated energy markets, Texas often serves as an example of a successful deregulation model. More than half of the Texas population is served by one of the six deregulated transmission and distribution utilities (TDUs) across the state.

The data presented below offers some basic insight into the Texas electricity market. All price points are the 2,000 kWh rates published on www.powertochoose.org, except where otherwise noted. Averages are calculated monthly with data points from all providers publishing an applicable rate and are presented by utility area and as a combined statewide average for the purposes of comparison.
