Aside from being the official website of the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT), power to choose is also a phrase used in reference to the freedom Texans have when selecting an electricity provider. Texas Energy Savings seeks to enhance the power to choose by providing Texans with the most competitive electricity rates, making their choice easier.
Why Texans have the power to choose
Prior to 2002, Texas had a regulated electricity market, meaning Texans received electricity service from their local utility. There were no alternatives. Around the turn of the century, there was a push in the Texas State Legislature to deregulate electricity and allow competition within the market. This was ultimately achieved in 2002, granting new electricity suppliers access to the market and, most importantly, Texans the “power to choose.”

Powering the power to choose
Texans have the power to choose their electricity provider, but that choice is not always as easy as it sounds. With so many different plans and rates, it’s easy to get bogged down when searching for the best electricity provider. At Texas Energy Savings, our goal is to simplify this process. We do the hard work for you and provide you with the most competitive electricity rates for your business.
There are three easy steps in our process:
Types of Electricity Plans
A fixed-rate electricity plan is a great option for businesses that are looking for stability and comfort. As the name suggests, a fixed-rate plan provides a set monthly rate for the entire term of the contract. New businesses or businesses that are not interested in taking risks might look to a fixed-rate plan to afford them peace of mind.
A variable-rate electricity plan can potentially offer savings relative to a fixed-rate plan. Variable-rate plans include rates that fluctuate month-to-month. This means that your electricity rate could lower throughout the term, however, it also indicates that your rate could increase. Businesses that are comfortable with taking risks for potential savings are a good match for this type of electricity plan. Additionally, variable-rate plans usually have more flexibility than fixed-rate plans, meaning you will likely have no issues changing or canceling the plan at any time.

Most of Texas has gained the power to choose since deregulation in 2002, however, some locations remain regulated. These areas include Austin, Amarillo, and El Paso.
