“Why” you ask?
The short answer is deregulation. What’s that? You don’t want to hear the short answer. Texas energy pricing coupled with the PUCT used to be the only thing that mattered about your electric bill. You did not have to worry about your electric rate because the PUCT set the price. Electricity companies now set the prices and it is not always low.
Since deregulation electric prices have gone up and down but if you signed up with a fixed rate plan you may have not see the affects of it.
