How energy deregulation works
If you live in a deregulated area of Texas, you must choose an electricity provider. The area’s utility company will deliver the energy to your home or business but cannot sell you an electricity plan. This means there are many electricity providers competing for business and it can be confusing to choose one. However, it also means that you can choose a plan that really works for you.
Choose Texas Power is a free resource built to help you do that. We’ll explain the plan terminology you’ll see, what to think about when choosing a provider, and what to do if you want to switch to a different provider.
Our marketplace is selective, based on relationships we’ve built with Texas electricity providers over time. We only show you plans from providers with a reliable record, so our customers can trust what they are signing up for. If you have questions, our team is standing by to help.
