Deregulation Allows Corpus Christi Residents to Compare Electric Companies

Known for its location along the southeastern coast of Texas, Corpus Christi’s name translates to “Body of Christ.” Although the city was discovered in the 1500s by the Spanish, it gradually became a place of trade early on in American history. Over time, Corpus Christi has become one of the state’s largest cities and boasts a population of over 300,000 residents.

With its position along the Gulf of Mexico, Corpus Christi offers scenic views and a wide variety of activities in and around the water. The city is also home to other attractions, including the Texas State Aquarium and the Selena Museum. As one of largest Texas cities and based on the amount of tourism it draws in each year, it’s important that businesses and residents can access reliable energy.

By virtue of its location, Corpus Christi lies within Texas’ deregulated electricity market. This enables its residents to pick and choose their energy provider from the many that serve the state. What does that mean for you? You’re entitled to select the Corpus Christi electricity provider that best meets your and your family’s needs — and gives you the low rates you want.

What does energy deregulation mean for Corpus Christi residents?

In 1999, the Texas Senate adopted Senate Bill 7, or SB 7, which effectively deregulated the Texas energy market. According to then-Senator Davis Sibly, the bill had one main goal: “to bring down the cost of electricity for all Texans.” 

Thanks to SB 7, Texans now have access to more energy companies, giving business owners and private residents more choices. More energy companies means stiffer competition, driving down rates so you can find electricity prices that are more affordable.

Deregulated energy markets are now found in many Texas cities. Corpus Christi is one of them. If you live in the Corpus Christi area, it’s worth researching Corpus Christi electricity plans to find the most cost-efficient option — especially when you take into account the area’s overall high energy costs.
