Deregulation 101: Everything You Need to Know about Deregulation and How It Affects You

You’ll hear plenty of stories in the news about deregulation and how it hasn’t worked. Some REP customers pay way higher than the Texas average rate of about 12.7 cents per kWh.

While some Texans have seen their costs increase, the truth is deregulation has been helpful in keeping prices down for the state, as confirmed by Pat Wood, former Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Texas PUC.

Deregulation, because of its very nature as a legal mechanism, is a complex subject. Fortunately, you’ve found a comprehensive resource that explains all its intricacies in plain English, rather than legalese.

Take a look below to learn more:
