Even though customers in deregulated Texas markets routinely pay more for electricity, there is a bright spot. The gap between the average price paid for electricity between deregulated and regulated market has shrunk to 8.8 percent. In 2006, customers in deregulated cities were paying nearly 47 percent more for electricity than their counterparts in regulated cities.
“  I've NEVER had a problem with StarTex. I've had several others and their rates and fees always increase. Startex doesn't have the lowest rate, but they are about in the middle. I always use the "AMI" promotional code when I renew and it gives me the cheapest possible price...typically about .2 cents off per kWh. I pay via my banks bill pay system and have never had an issue. They send me monthly bills, they send me renewal notices, and their customer service has always been prompt and courteous. I would highly recommend StarTex for a reliable, cost efficient, and good power company. ”

While energy deregulation aims to help people afford the electricity they use, the fact that it opens the electricity market up to competition can sometimes encourage the wrong kinds of people. Energy deregulation allows organizations known as electricity providers (and their affiliates) to offer supply related energy services to energy consumers.  The vast majority of these organizations and the people working for them are legit and offer many different types of products and services that are reasonable, fair, and are advertised with honesty and transparency. However, there are individuals out there who try to take advantage of consumers. They run...
