Texas Power to Choose

Updated: 11/10/2020

What is Power to Choose in Texas?

Since the Texas energy market became deregulated in 2002, millions of Texas residents have benefitted from Energy Choice, also referred to as the power to choose your electricity provider. By eliminating the monopoly that local utilities once had over the supply of electricity, Texans with power to choose can compare the best electricity rates and plans and choose the best one for their home.
