Odessa electric companies

In 2002, Texas lawmakers deregulated the state’s energy market. Since then, consumers have been able to choose their own energy providers. Odessa residents have plenty of electricity providers to choose from. Some of the most popular options include TXU Energy, TriEagle Energy, Gexa Energy, Iberdrola Texas, Frontier Energy, and many others.

The energy provider you choose will supply the electricity that’s delivered to your home, but your local electric utility will deliver your electricity and install and maintain the energy infrastructure. When you experience a power outage or another problem with your electricity service, contact your utility company.

The utility for the Odessa area is Oncor Electric Delivery. You can contact Oncor in the following ways:

  • Call 888-313-6862 for customer service
  • Call 888-313-4747 to report an outage

Types of plans

When you sign up for your electricity plan, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. Here are common types of plans:

  • Fixed-rate plan: When you sign up for a fixed-rate plan, you sign a contract and lock in a specific rate. For the entirety of your contract, your electricity rate won’t change. As a result, you aren’t vulnerable to fluctuations in the energy market. While you won’t benefit from any market-rate decreases, you also won’t see your rates increase if the market rate goes up. Fixed-rate plans provide stability and security throughout your contract.
  • Variable-rate plan: With a variable-rate plan, you don’t lock in a particular rate. Instead, the rate you pay for electricity changes each month depending on the current market rate. As a result, your rate could fluctuate significantly from one month to the next. With a variable-rate plan, there is the risk that you could also see your electric rate shoot up if the market changes.
  • No-deposit plan: Many Texas electricity plans require customers to pay a deposit, especially if they have a poor credit score. There are some no-deposit plans to choose from. Customers with good credit scores may qualify for a no-deposit plan. There are also no-deposit plans that don’t require a credit check at all.
  • Prepaid plan: A prepaid plan is a type of no-deposit energy plan that doesn’t require a credit check. With a prepaid plan, customers pay for their electricity upfront based on the amount of electricity they expect to use in a particular month. Because you pay upfront, you aren’t locked into a contract. The downside of this type of plan is that you have to have a good idea of how much electricity you’ll end up using.
  • Green energy plan: Green energy is becoming increasingly popular as more customers are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Texas is a leader in green energy, and customers have many options available to them.
