In 1849, a man named William Davis donated 120 acres of his land to build a town, later named McKinney. This Texas city was named after Collin McKinney, the oldest signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. For over a hundred years, the town gained its reputation as the county?s main industrial hub. It provided farmers with corn, flour, cotton gins, cotton mills and more. Churches, banks, schools, and newspapers thrived alongside larger businesses like, an ice company, textile mill, dairy and clothing manufacturing company.

In 2014, Money Magazine appointed McKinney as the number one place to live in the United States. Situated 37 miles north of Dallas, the city also holds its own as a popular tourist destination. As one of the fastest growing cities in America, this once small town is now home to many modern businesses, and a historical downtown, with buildings that date as far back as the mid-1800s.

McKinney Electricity Providers

Energy deregulation came into affect in Texas in 2002 due to new legislation. These laws brought about a change in the way some utilities do business with their customers. While utilities are still responsible for the delivery of energy, as well as the maintenance and safety of their products, the entity responsible for supplying electricity changed.

Energy consumers can now select their energy supplier. This includes energy companies or Retail Electric Providers (REPs) who often offer lower rates, plans, and other special offers to remain competitive in the market.

McKinney has many REPs throughout the city, some of which include:

McKinney is a city where energy deregulation applies to most residents. It is important to understand that only 85% of Texans have the option to choose their REP. Some areas are not currently eligible and still need to receive their energy supply from their local utility. To determine whether or not you live in an energy deregulated area, you can always contact your utility for options, or check out the Texas state Power to Choose program.

McKinney?s Energy Industry

In 2011, McKinney teamed up with TXU Energy to support an electric vehicle market program. They implemented a charging station at the Roy and Helen Hall Library, with plans for additional stations at their Senior Recreation Center, and Development Services and Public Work offices. This project was supported by McKinney?s Office of Environmental Stewardship, which has since been disbanded and moved into other areas of the city?s government.
