Choose Texas Power: An alternative to Power to Choose

What is PowerToChoose Texas?

The Public Utilities of Texas runs PowerToChoose.org, a website that allows consumers to browse electricity rates and plans in the Lone Star State.

Power to choose electricity in Texas

The Texas energy market became deregulated in 2002. Since then, consumers have had the power to choose their electricity company from a wide variety of providers.

About 85% of Texas is deregulated, with the exception of a few areas such as Austin and San Antonio. Below are a few of the largest cities in Texas that offer you the power to choose electricity:
