Texas’ Competitive Energy Market 101

C3 Solutions outlines the many benefits of Texas’ competitive energy market.

The C3 Take
  • Texas’ electricity model is unique and benefits consumers and the environment alike.
  • Winter storm Uri was a result of infrastructure failures, not market failures.
  • Adopting a capacity market framework would hurt consumer choice, allow the government to pick energy winners and losers, and harm the environment.

“Texas can improve grid reliability without overhauling it. Regulators, utility commissioners, and politicians should uphold its competitive market which will benefit consumers and the environment alike.”
