Energy providers and utility companies in Dallas
In a deregulated city like Dallas, it’s important to know the difference between electricity providers and utilities. Your electricity provider purchases electricity from the utility and sells it to you through an energy plan. In contrast, utility companies deliver electricity to your property and respond to power outages.
- Providers: Dallas residents and business owners can choose from a variety of electricity providers to find the best electric company. Some of the most well-known providers include Reliant Energy, TXU Energy, Frontier Utilities, and Pulse Power.
- Utilities: Oncor Electric Delivery is the utility company in Dallas. Utilities are determined by geography, so you aren’t able to choose yours.
Power outages in Dallas
If you experience a power outage in Dallas, you should contact your utility company — not your energy provider. Oncor Electric is in charge of restoring power during an outage and can provide updates about when your service will be restored.
To report an outage, visit Oncor’s online outage center or call the company at 1-888-313-4747.

How weather affects Dallas electricity rates
The weather and seasonal changes can have a major impact on electricity rates in Dallas. The average high temperature in Dallas is 96 degrees in July and August and 56 degrees in January. Electricity demand also varies in accordance with the changing temps. Demand for cooling during hot summers increases power consumption in Dallas.
Electricity rates tend to be cheaper when energy demand is low. Milder weather in the spring and fall can be some of the best times to get a cheap rate. One of the best ways to save on electricity costs and get cheap electricity in Dallas is to lock in a fixed-rate plan when rates are low.
Types of plans in Dallas
As you look for new electricity providers, you’ll notice multiple types of plans. If you want to learn more about your options, check out our guide to picking an energy plan or call the phone number on your screen.
Fixed-rate plans in Dallas
A fixed-rate plan locks in your electricity rate for the duration of your contract (generally 12–36 months). These plans give you a predictable energy bill. If you cancel before your contract is up, you may need to pay an early termination fee (ETF). However, if you are moving to a new address, you will not have to pay an ETF if you submit proof of an address change.
Variable-rate plans in Dallas
Variable-rate plans are the opposite of fixed-rate plans. You won’t be locked into a contract or have to pay an ETF, but your rate may fluctuate between billing periods. Your energy rate will change based on the wholesale cost of electricity, which shifts due to supply and demand. Variable-rate plans can be a good short-term option but could be more expensive if energy rates spike.
Many providers require a deposit before they will begin service. The deposit amount is based on credit scores. If you don’t want to pay a deposit or wish to bypass the credit check, there are no-deposit options available on our marketplace. Prepaid energy plans are a popular type of no-deposit plan. With a prepaid plan, you will keep your energy account loaded with the amount you want to spend and refill as needed.
Green electricity in Dallas
Across the country, Texas is leading the way in green energy. Specifically, the Lone Star State creates the most electricity from wind power of all 50 states. It’s also within the top five states for solar energy generation.
Your Texas electric plan will contain a percentage of renewable energy. Some plans are powered by 100% green energy. Check the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) for more details. Dallas electricity providers like Green Mountain Energy and Gexa Energy exclusively offer renewable plans.
Business energy plans in Dallas
Like residential energy, commercial electricity is also deregulated in Texas. If you own a company in Dallas, you can use SaveOnEnergy to get the best energy rate for your business. To learn more about building a customized business energy plan in Dallas, visit our commercial energy page.
Calculate your energy usage in Dallas
Choosing the right energy plan will depend on how much electricity you consume in your home each month. Energy providers charge different rates based on your energy usage. Not sure how much energy you use? The SaveOnEnergy usage calculator can estimate your monthly household electricity usage. Use your estimated monthly kilowatt-hour (kWh) usage to find a plan that suits your needs.
SaveOnEnergy’s tips for easy electricity service setup
- Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
- Price per kilowatt-hour based on your energy usage
- The plan’s percentage of renewable energy sourcing
- Early termination fees
- Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
- Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.
