How does deregulation work?
Deregulated energy gives you the power to choose your electric provider. About 85 percent of Texas has a deregulated energy market in place. Natural gas is not deregulated in Texas, but is in many other states.
In deregulated areas, utility companies are not allowed to generate, sell, and transmit electricity. Instead, deregulation breaks these responsibilities up between utilities and energy providers and allows consumers to choose their energy provider from a pool of available candidates.

The difference between a utility and a provider
CenterPoint Energy is a utility company. In Texas, utility companies deliver electricity from the energy provider to your home or business and maintain the electrical infrastructure. This means CenterPoint Energy is responsible for restoring power when there is an outage. If you experience a power outage in CenterPoint Energy’s service area, contact the utility instead of your provider. Your utility company is determined by where you live, so while you can choose your energy provider, you cannot choose your utility.
In deregulated areas like Texas, you can choose your energy provider. Energy providers are the companies that generate and sell you electricity. You can use the SaveOnEnergy marketplace to find and compare energy providers in the CenterPoint Energy service area to power your home or business
