How to Understand Deregulation in Texas?
Depending on the state, electric utilities in the US operate under many varying structures. Some states encourage competition among retail energy suppliers, giving more choice to the customer. This is called deregulation.
Since 2002 in Texas, which is one of many deregulated states, more than 5 million residents have had the choice of which electricity provider they’d prefer.
Confused yet? Don’t be. We’re here to provide you with many solutions when it comes to choosing a provider:
What is the difference between a utility and a provider
One of the most common questions for energy consumers is: What’s the difference between an energy provider and a utility company? Understanding what each is, and how they both work together to bring you energy, can help you feel more confident about your choice of energy supplier.
Let’s break down the difference:
Utility vs. Provider
In short, utility companies deliver natural gas or electricity to your home. They source energy from a providier and transfer it to your home (or business) through their own maintained lines.
So when your power goes out, your utility is who you call. It’s the company that sends you your monthly bill, in other words.
But that energy has to come from somewhere. So, while the utility companies deliver the gas and electricity to you, the customer, the energy providers generate or buy the energy itself.
