How Natural Gas Affects Fort Worth, Texas Electric Rates

fort worth texas electricity comparisonYour Fort Worth, Texas electricity comes at a price, but thanks to the shale production of natural gas in Louisiana, Arkansas and other states, your rates are dropping. By providing Fort Worth, Texas electric providers with more natural gas because the shale production is increasing, the electric price decreases. Think of it in terms of supply overcoming the demand. The demand for natural gas by power plants in Texas is large. Since shale production is increasing the volume of natural gas produced, it is easier for the power plants to receive the needed gas. This results in overall savings that are passed down to you, the consumer.

The production of natural gas in other states is vital to the success and, ultimately, the cost of electricity production in Texas. If power plants have to pay exorbitant fees for natural gas because the demand is greater than the supply, the consumer ends up covering some of that cost. Since the shale production of natural gas makes it faster and easier to produce the gas, the power plants save money and you get your electricity at a lower rate.

  1. Is natural gas deregulation not available in Texas? I know it is here in the midwest and that takes care of a lot of the price differences that are sometimes transferred to consumers.

    • Texas natural gas is deregulated for large commercial and industrial businesses outside the city gates. Residential is not deregulated.
