No matter who you choose to buy energy from, your local utility will continue to deliver your electricity and/or gas and respond to service interruptions and outages. You will still pay your utility for these services. Depending on your area, you can choose to receive a single bill from your utility listing your utility delivery charges and competitive supply charges, or separate bills from the utility and alternate energy provider.  The information on this page was last updated on June 20, 2011.  Please be sure to get accurate and up-to-date information before making any decision.

Texas
Electric:

In 2002, most of state of Texas was opened to competition for retail electricity. That means about 85% of Texans have the right to choose their own electricity provider.

These Texans live in what is known as the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), which covers areas including Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Corpus Christi and much of West Texas.

If your local wires utility is one of these companies, you can choose your electric provider:

Oncor (Dallas-Ft. Worth)
CenterPoint (Houston)
AEP Texas Central (Corpus Christi)
AEP Texas North (Abilene area)
Texas-New Mexico Power
Sharyland 

Here's how electric choice in Texas works. You get to choose your electric provider based on whatever criteria you like -- price, stability, green power, etc. Your electric provider sells you your power, and pays your local utility (Oncor, CenterPoint, etc.) to transmit the power to your home. You only pay one bill to your electricity provider; you no longer pay your wires utility. But if you ever need to report an outage or other emergency, you contact your utility (Oncor, CenterPoint, etc.) because they still own the lines and are responsible for maintenance.

What if you've never chosen an electric provider before? You're automatically on a "legacy" provider, which used to be the old utility before Texas was opened to competition, but is now a separate company. For a while, these legacy providers, also called "Affiliated Retail Electric Providers" or "incumbents," charged rates set by the Public Utility Commission, during a transition period. However, this transition period ended January 1, 2007, and the legacy providers can now charge a rate determined by the market. That means if you haven't shopped around yet, you should.

The legacy providers vary by utility area. For example, if you live in the Dallas area and are served by Oncor, your legacy provider is TXU Energy. For the Houston area, if you're served by CenterPoint, your legacy provider is Reliant Energy

Here's a list of all the legacy providers:
     Utility Area         Legacy Retail Provider
     AEP Texas Central         CPL Retail Energy
     AEP Texas North         WTU Retail Energy
     CenterPoint         Reliant Energy
     Oncor         TXU Energy
     Sharyland Utilities         First Choice Power
     Texas-New Mexico Power         First Choice Power

If you are still on your legacy energy provider, you may be paying more than you need to. It's a good idea to shop around and look for a lower rate, especially since switching your energy provider is free.

What about areas not open to competition?
If your utility is SWEPCO (AEP), El Paso Electric, Entergy, Southwestern Public Service (Xcel), CoServe, Co-op, or a city owned municipality, you cannot choose your electric provider at this time. The Public Utility Commission is still studying how to open those areas to electric competition.
