Compare Texas Electricity Rates with Your Power to Choose

Texas electric companies opened to customer choice in 2002. Since then, the majority of eligible residents have taken the opportunity to choose which company they want to get their electricity supply from. But there are many consumers who haven't changed from their original provider. These consumers may be missing out on the chance to shop and compare plans from a variety of retail electric providers.

When you compare Texas electric companies and their plans, you are opening a world of possibilities. You might find a new provider that aligns with your eco-friendly goals. You might find a plan that offers features that fit your household's unique style, such as free nights or a smart thermostat. Or you might find a long-term fixed rate that will keep your budget happy for years to come.

If you live in an area of Texas with the power to choose your electricity supply plan, take advantage of the opportunity to shop around. If you've just moved to Texas, enter your ZIP code above or call us to find out if your address is eligible for retail Texas electricity rates.

Learn the benefits of the power to choose in Texas

Texas electricity consumers enjoy lots of perks. The greatest benefit is that you can shop for new electricity supply rates. Before the regulatory change in 2002, called deregulation, electricity consumers didn't have a choice when it came to energy providers. Your electricity service provider was determined by where you lived, and you had to pay the regulated Texas energy rates that the utility set. In a deregulated electricity market, however, retail electric providers (REPs) can adjust their prices to reflect demands in the market. Your ability to shop around means you have a good chance of securing a favorable rate for your home or business.

The perks don't stop at electricity pricing. The power to choose also means you can find a plan that fits the way you live. For example, if you have a short-term lease, a month-to-month supply plan might fit your needs best. On the other hand, if you own your home and don't plan on moving soon, a long-term, fixed-rate supply plan might be most attractive. You can choose whatever plan suits your situation.
