Some locations closer to Fort Worth's downtown such as Northeast have a larger renter population. Renters might shop a little differently than other homeowners, depending on their situation. If you're in a shorter rental agreement, you can shop for shorter Fort Worth electricity supply plans. Keep in mind that new Fort Worth electric rates on supply can pop up at any time.
Texas deregulated most of the state's electricity markets in 2002, a move aimed at lowering electricity costs by letting consumers choose their own electric power providers and their own plans. Some parts of Texas continued to be regulated, including those that get power from municipal utilities, electric cooperatives and investor-owned utilities that operate outside the state's primary power grid.
Fort Worth has, for the most part, followed in the footsteps of the state. In 2013, the American Council for Energy Efficiency ranked Fort Worth 26th in the list of America's most energy-efficient cities. The use of green energy in Fort Worth will continue to rise as the city's new Sustainability Task Force aims to make the city's development and growth more sustainable.
