Electricity Deregulation opened up the energy markets for people like you and me to choose our energy provider. Regulation is deregulation’s predecessor. Regulation is when the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) set the rates for consumers. The reason why deregulation never happened earlier is infrastructure was not in place. We now have a strong enough infrastructure to support deregulation.

Terms in the Energy Deregulation Markets

Transmission and Distribution Utilities (TDU) are the poles and wire companies. The TDUs are required to be non-disciminatory towards REPs because of the standard terms and conditions adopted by the PUCT. If you see a TDSP charge on your electric bill it is the TDUs that are charging you.

Texas Electricity Comparison averages in all fees and charges in to the rates on our compare chart.
