Energy deregulation means the power to choose

Since the Texas energy market became deregulated in 2002, residents have benefitted from the power to choose their electricity supplier. Utility companies no longer hold a monopoly and customers can shop for the best electricity rates and plans.

How does SaveOnEnergy.com help? We are one of the largest energy marketplaces in the state. We’ve helped more than a million Texans find residential and commercial energy plans from trusted retail electric providers (REPs), including TXU Energy, Reliant Energy, and more.

About 85 percent of Texans have the power to choose their electricity plans, and it’s a power worth exercising. Our energy professionals can help if you have questions! Give us a call or enter your ZIP code to get started.

What is PowertoChoose.org?

PowertoChoose.org is the official website of the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT). The PUCT is the agency that regulates Texas’ energy market.

On PowertoChoose.org, customers can see all electric providers available in their area and the plans they offer. While this allows residents and businesses to see all the options, you’re also seeing providers without regard to reputation or customer complaints. Eventually, you’ll want to narrow down the field to providers you know you can trust. That’s where SaveOnEnergy® comes in.

Why choose SaveOnEnergy.com?

Deregulation means consumers have a lot of choice, but it also means that anyone can get on the market. Not all electric companies are created equal. You want cheap electricity rates, but you also want reliable service. For that you need a retail electric provider with a reputation that holds up to scrutiny.

The SaveOnEnergy difference means:

  • Reliable service. We pay attention to who we work with, so you can be sure you’re buying from a trusted provider. We want to avoid surprises and make sure you’re comfortable with your choice. Questions? Give us a call and one of our energy experts can guide you through the process.
  • No hidden fees. SaveOnEnergy partners with top providers to show today’s cheapest rates – at no cost to you. The rates we show you include utility costs and PUCT fees, so you know what you’re seeing is what you’ll get.
  • Options for everyone. In our marketplace, you can filter for what’s important to you. Whether you’re looking for cheap electricity, green power, or no deposit plans, we have something to suit your lifestyle and budget.

How to shop with SaveOnEnergy

Our 24/7 online marketplace makes exercising your power to choose easy, any time of day or night. Here’s how it works:

  1. Enter your ZIP code. We’ll show you plans available in your area from top electric providers.
  2. Make your choice. Filter by size of home, energy preferences, or provider to find a plan that works for you. If you’re not sure, give us a call and our energy experts will help you sort through the choices.
  3. Feel powerful. Sign up online or over the phone and enjoy your new electricity plan in as little as one day. No need to cancel with your current provider – your new REP will seamlessly handle the switch.

Which cities have the power to choose?

Cities across Texas, including Dallas, Houston and Corpus Christi, have access to the state’s deregulated energy system. If you live in one of these deregulated areas, your utility company (TDSP or TDU) will deliver your power, but you must choose an electricity supplier.

The following are some Texas cities where residents can exercise the power to choose:

Arlington Corpus Christi Dallas Fort Worth
Houston Irving Katy Midland
Plano Round Rock Waco Wichita Falls

A few things to remember

  • 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 usage
    • % 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.
