For many years, Texas residents and business owners have had the power to choose a company to supply their electricity. Deregulation has created a competitive energy market, where retail electric providers (REPs) have the ability to sell electricity to consumers. As a REP, Southwest Power & Light provides its customers a variety of Texas electricity supply rates. Depending on what qualities are most important to customers, customers can also search for a REP based on other criteria such as community service involvement, billing options or advanced product offers. Take advantage of Texas electricity choice and compare offers in your area!

View Southwest Power & Light electricity plans

Not all businesses and homes have the same Texas electricity requirements, which is why it’s so important for energy consumers to weigh their options before choosing a supply plan. Residential and commercial customers can typically find different Texas electricity supply rates based on their address and ZIP code. The Southwest Power & Light site explains that it services both small and large businesses. Not only will commercial customers have the opportunity to choose among competitive plans, but they will also have access to an online account and any energy billing details.

The Southwest Power & Light website states that consumers can choose from its different supply plans, but showcases its Plant-a-Tree E-Plan. For more than three years, the company has had a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, showing its commitment to environmental conservation. According to the site, if Southwest Power & Light customers choose to use the Plant-a-Tree plan, the Arbor Day Foundation plants a tree per every 1,000 kWhs of energy consumed. The company site explains that the trees will be planted in Texas’ Bastrop State Park, which lost thousands of trees due to multiple wildfires in 2011.

Save electrical emergency contact information

In case of an electrical emergency such as an outage or maintenance issue you will not contact your REP. Depending on your location, you’ll want to call your transmission and distribution utility (TDU) because it’s responsible for the delivery of electricity to your home or business. Be sure to keep your TDU contact information on file in the event of an emergency.
