Deregulation Cost Texans $11 Billion and Other Important Things to Know

July 30, 2013

Deregulation is a complicated issue. To help boil it down, we have added a four-page, graphic Quick Reference Guide to Electricity Deregulation in the deregulation resources section of this website.

APS is working to preserve the benefits of the current regulatory system and help Arizonans avoid the costly mistakes of other states that have deregulated. The document:

  • highlights a number of those challenges seen elsewhere,
  • shows which states have deregulated electricity (and how the trend has been for states to move away from it),
  • discusses what it would take in Arizona to deregulate,
  • offers a glossary of key terms, and
  • identifies some issues APS believes would have a serious impact on Arizona electric customers.
