Texas electric providers and utilities

Texas boasts the largest deregulated energy market in the United States as of 2022, with 90% of the state’s population able to choose their electricity provider. As a result, you can choose which provider you buy your energy from instead of being required to sign up for a plan through your utility. This can save you money and give you access to more energy plans. 

If you don’t choose an electric utility plan, the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) will assign one. For residential customers in the CenterPoint Energy service area, your default provider will be Reliant Energy.

Choose Texas Power is not affiliated with Power to Choose,, or the PUCT.

You can search for an energy provider in your area by entering your ZIP code on this page. Browse current energy rates from major providers and filter results by specific features like energy use or sustainability.
