Ellis County Texas has several cities that are deregulated to offer competitive electricity
Among these cities are:
Â When shopping for a competitive electricity product you will see a wide variation between residential electric power and commercial electricity rates. The commercial rates are significantly lower then residential. This likely will not change for quite awhile as there just is not an incentive for the Retail Electric Providers to become more competitive for residential electricity.
Commercial Electricity as of May 23 2007 has a lowest rate achieved at .0903 cents\kwh. This does not include the TDSP charges which range anywhere from .01 cents\kwh all the way up to .08 cents\kwh. Most people spend about 3-4 cents\kwh on TDSP charges. The only way to find out for sure what the utility charges are that you pay is to call your Transmission and Distribution Service Provider in your area. For Ellis county the TDSP would be TXU.
