It has been delivering electricity for about 245,000 homes and businesses in the Houston, Dallas–Fort Worth, and Midland areas since 1981.

How to understand deregulation in Texas
Texas has had deregulated energy throughout most of the state for almost 20 years. This means customers can choose from competing providers instead of having only the utility as their provider. The system is designed to create a competitive price market in your area and allow you to take advantage of better pricing.
If you’re moving to a deregulated city from a regulated one or just want to hop providers, it’s time to learn how to switch energy providers. You can also read about how to lower your electricity bill and what you need to know about no-deposit energy plans. Finally, check out our energy buying guide to become an even more savvy consumer.
What is the difference between a utility and a supplier?
You buy your electricity from an energy supplier, and your utility company makes sure it gets to you. However, that’s not all a utility company does. Your transmission and distribution company also maintains power lines and makes sure vital equipment like circuit breakers are in working order. To be clear: When you search for a new electricity plan, you’re seeing offerings from suppliers.
Most of the fees associated with your bill will come from your supplier, but your utility company charges for transmission and delivery fees. Other items on your bill include taxes. Everyone in the TNMP service area will pay the same delivery fees no matter which supplier they buy from.
