This bill facilitated a competitive energy marketplace that 85 percent of Texans can capitalize on today. Energy choice is available to residents in Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth as well as other cities in Texas.

Shop your options in Texas energy rates
This freedom to choose from electricity companies in Texas gives consumers the option to select the plan that best fits their energy needs. Benefits available from electricity companies to consumers across Texas are known as supply rate types. Energy rates in Texas vary among REPs, but some options to look forward to include:
Supply Rate Type
Fixed-rate supply plans offer consumers a secured rate per kilowatt hour (kWh) throughout a contract period.
Variable-rate supply plans do not offer a secured rate, which means price per kWh may vary each month.
Indexed-rate supply plans are similar to variable-rate plans, except an indexed plan is tied to the price of a public commodity.
Prepaid supply plans do not require a credit check and allows consumers to pay for energy in advance.
Green, or renewable, supply plans allow consumers to offset up to 100 percent of their household or business’ carbon emissions from the building's electricity consumption.
Learn why Texas is a leader in green energy
Texas currently produces and consumes more electricity than any other state in the country. This energy consumption is due to its size, but the ample land makes it a major producer of wind power – a renewable, or green, energy source. The environmentally friendly energy created by wind power is available to many Texas residents to supply the electricity in their home or business.
Green energy plans can also include energy produced by comparatively clean natural gas. Consumers can select the percentage of renewable energy they want to receive as part of their energy plan – up to 100 percent.
Compare energy providers and utilities
Although 85 percent of Texans can enjoy energy choice, the remaining 15 percent of residents receive their energy from the local utility company.
Utility companies are responsible for transmission and delivery of electricity even in energy deregulated parts of Texas and should be contacted in the event of a power outage. Your retail energy supplier may provide you competitive electric rates or exceptional customer service, but they cannot repair power lines or restore your service. In the case of an emergency, contact:
- AEP (Central and North): 1-866-223-8508
- CenterPoint Energy: 1-800-332-7143
- Oncor: 1-888-313-4747
- Sharyland: 1-965-668-9551
