Rockwall, Texas, gets its name from a naturally jointed geological formation that looks like a manmade wall. While a suburb of Dallas, Rockwall County is also one of the smallest counties currently in Texas. But, it also happens to be one of the top five fastest-growing counties in the United States by population. Between 2000 and 2010, the population nearly doubled to almost 40,000 residents. The city enjoys a very low 3.5% unemployment rate with most of its economy driven by the Rockwall Independent School District.
Rockwall’s 11,943 households are mostly owner-occupied with only about a third that are rentals. Most Rockwall households are made up of families, and the median age for individuals is about 35. A third of the population is under 24, 30.9% between 25 and 44 and 34.8% over the age of 45. An average family in Rockwall can expect to bring home $75,000.

The average Texas household spends $1,801 on energy bills each year. If you compare electricity rates, that's about 26% higher than the national average but similar to what people pay in Florida and other warm weather states. If you'd like to cut down on expenses, comparison shopping can help you determine which Rockwall, Texas, electric suppliers offer the best plan for you and empower you to reconsider how you use energy in your home.
The first thing that probably comes to mind is air conditioning, which makes up 18% of the energy you use. Then, if you add up all of your appliances, lights, and electronic devices, that's another 41% of your electricity. Don't forget your water heater or heating your home in the winter. Heating and cooling costs can be controlled by keeping your thermostat a little higher in the summer and a little lower in the winter. Limiting the length of your showers and using cold water detergent to do your laundry can reduce the load on your water heater. For the rest, try to look for the Energy Star label when you buy or replace your electronics and home appliances, and switch to LED bulbs when your incandescent bulbs blow out.
