Abstract

In this paper, we document rising market concentration in Texas's retail electricity market. Given recent acquisitions, we question whether a retail market with higher levels of concentration can continue to offer the low prices, an expansive array of creative pricing plans, and new consumer technologies that were promised when the forces of competition were unleashed twenty years ago.
