Mesquite electric companies

Texas deregulated its energy market in 2002. Since then, consumers have been able to choose their own energy providers rather than receiving the default service from their local utility company. Mesquite residents have many providers to choose from. Some of the most popular providers in the state include:

While your chosen energy provider will supply the electricity you use in your home, your utility company still handles the delivery and infrastructure. Anytime you have problems with your energy service or need to report an outage, contact Oncor in one of the following ways:

Types of plans

When you shop for your own energy plan in Texas, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from. Be sure you understand how each plan works before selecting the right one for you.

  • Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate energy plan is one where you lock in a contract and pay the same rates for your electricity supply each month. Even as the market fluctuates, your supply rate won’t change for the life of your contract.
  • Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate energy plan is one where your electricity supply rate fluctuates with the market. These plans come with pros and cons. You may end up paying lower rates when the market goes down, but as demand increases and prices rise, you can expect your rate to go up. There’s no way to know ahead of time what direction the rates will go.
  • No deposit plan: Many energy plans require an upfront deposit, especially for residents with bad credit. A no-deposit plan is one where the consumer doesn’t have to pay the deposit. These are most commonly available for residents with high credit scores, though prepaid plans are another option.
  • Prepaid plan: A prepaid energy plan, also known as a pay-as-you-go plan, is a popular type of energy plan in Texas. With this type of plan, consumers pay upfront for their electricity use. This type of plan can be tricky since you have to estimate ahead of time how much electricity you’ll use. You also may pay a higher rate than you would with a typical fixed-rate plan.
  • Green energy plan: More and more consumers are looking for green energy plans to help reduce their carbon footprint. Texas is a leader in renewable energy electricity, and residents of the state have many options to choose from. Each Texas energy plan has some component of green energy. Many companies offer 100% green energy plans, and some companies only offer these plans. When you enter your ZIP code to see the plans available in your area, you’ll be able to see which are green energy plans.
