Your utility company is important no matter where you live – it is often in charge of supplying electricity to your home.

About 85 percent of the Texas energy market is deregulated, which means consumers can choose their energy provider from a lot of different options.

In Texas, retail electricity providers (REPs) oversee generating or buying electricity. But utility companies transport that electricity to your home, maintain infrastructure, and restore power during an outage.
