Arizona Republic Opinion Piece: Consumers win with competition in electricity

Click here to read a piece from Nick Dranias of the Goldwater Institute, Andrew N. Kleit of Pennsylvania State University and Bill Peacock of the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Key quote:

“We shouldn’t look only at average statewide prices, because in Texas’ maturing competitive electricity market, the true test is the best price consumers can find. While national electricity prices have risen 41.6 percent since 2001, the average rate offered by the 15 most competitive electricity suppliers in Texas has only increased 5.7 percent.”
