Advantages of Electric Choice - Power to Choose

Take Control of Your Electric Rates in Texas with Power to Choose

Senate Bill 7, enacted on January 1, 2002, gave Texans the “power to choose” their electricity company. Since the deregulation of the Texas energy market, residents and businesses have had the ability to choose from a variety of energy providers that offer different plans and rates. Texas Electric Service simplifies this process by providing a hassle-free way to search, compare, and enroll in energy plans from the largest independent energy marketplace. Our website features plans from trusted retail electric providers (REPs) such as Frontier Utilities, Pulse Power, Tomorrow Energy, AP&G, and others that are tailored to meet your specific requirements and location.

At Texas Electric Service, we make it easy for you to search, compare, and sign up for energy plans in one convenient location. As the one of the first independent energy marketplaces, we offer plans from trusted retail electric providers (REPs) such as Frontier Utilities, Pulse Power, Tomorrow Energy, AP&G and more.

Simply enter your ZIP code or call the number on your screen to speak with our energy experts who can help you find affordable plans in your area.

What is PowertoChoose.org?

The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) regulates the Texas energy market and hosts PowertoChoose.org, the official website displaying available electricity plans from various providers in the area. However, this website fails to consider the track record or customer feedback of the providers.

At TexasElectricService.com, we provide an unaffiliated marketplace that offers expert guidance and allows you to filter plans based on your priorities. Our marketplace features a variety of options from reliable providers, and our team assists you in finding the ideal electricity plan for your home or business. Additionally, our sign-up process is quick and easy, making it simple to switch plans.

It is important to note that TexasElectricService.com is not affiliated with Power To Choose, powertochoose.org, or the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT).

Texas Power to Choose

The ability to choose an energy provider in Texas has led to a more competitive energy market. Prior to deregulation, there was no competition among providers, and the utility company had complete control over pricing as the only electricity provider.

Today, customers in Texas have a variety of options when selecting an energy provider. Utility companies are responsible for transmitting and delivering electricity to customers, as well as maintaining the electrical infrastructure. During a power outage, the location-based utility company is responsible for restoring service.

To make an informed decision when comparing providers, it’s crucial to review the Electricity Facts Label for each energy plan and learn about specific details such as early termination fees (ETFs). If you switch providers due to relocation, you will not be charged an ETF.

Deregulation of the energy market has taken place in cities throughout Texas, including  HoustonDallas, and Fort Worth. To explore energy plan options in your area, click on your city or enter your ZIP code.

Power to choose Houston

With energy deregulation and the power to choose, Houston’s 2.3 million residents have more options and control over their electricity. As the largest city in Texas and home to several top energy companies, Houston offers a range of available electricity plans. Check out a few of the available options below:

Seasonal electricity rates

Electricity rates are subject to fluctuation throughout the year due to various factors, including weather conditions and distribution systems. Severe weather events such as winter storms in Texas can often result in higher rates. When the demand for electricity generation increases, the cost of electricity also goes up. However, demand is typically lower during the winter and spring seasons, resulting in lower electricity rates compared to the summer months.

Take advantage of lower energy rates during winter to save on your energy bills. Enter your ZIP code or browse Texas electricity rates to lock in the best price while rates are low.

Compare winter electricity rates in Texas with the help of the tables below, which display the average price of residential electricity in Texas during January, based on data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
