Power to choose Harlingen

Although a lot of legislation and work goes into establishing a deregulated energy market, customers only need to worry about one thing: energy choice. Deregulation in Texas gives you the power to choose your electricity provider from multiple competitive companies and find rates within your budget.

Harlingen electric companies

 Since residents in Texas have the power to choose their providers, you have a wide range of companies to choose from to find the best Harlingen electric rates. Some of your options include TXU Energy, Gexa Energy, Reliant, Express Energy, Frontier Utilities, and 4Change Energy

Because of deregulation, electricity providers sell energy plans to customers and manage the billing and payment process. However, your local utility still handles electric transmission and distribution. You should contact your utility in case of a power outage. 

In the Harlingen area, the main electric utility is AEP Texas Central. To report an outage in Harlingen, call AEP at 1-866-223-8508 or use the company’s online outage center

Types of Harlingen electric plans

When exploring plans on the Choose Texas Power marketplace, you may be surprised by the number of different plan types. Harlingen electricity providers offer a variety of the following plans:

  • A fixed-rate plan allows you to lock in your rate when you sign up for the contract. As long as you’re under contract, this rate (other than taxes and fees) does not change even if the wholesale cost of energy fluctuates from month to month. These are often fixed-term contracts, so choose this plan if you prioritize structure and stability each month. Keep in mind, though, that you’ll pay an early termination fee (ETF) if you end your contract early.
  • Variable-rate plans have no contract. Rates can fluctuate depending on changes to the wholesale cost of energy each month. While you may not have as firm of an idea of what you will be paying for energy rates each month, this option offers the possibility of savings during periods of low energy demand. However, your rate may spike during periods of high energy demand. A variable rate plan may be best if you have room in your monthly budget for fluctuating costs and more open terms that allow switching.
  • A no-deposit plan does not require an upfront fee before beginning service. Providers often run a credit check before they start service and may require a deposit if your credit does not meet a certain limit. No-deposit plans allow you to skip the deposit and credit check. They often come in the form of prepaid plans, where you pay the company for energy in advance.
