The Power to Choose: A Big Advantage for Texas Shoppers

In most states, U.S. consumers are restricted to buying their energy from one utility. In Texas, you’ve got the power to choose your energy supply company. The Public Utility Commission of Texas offers a variety of helpful resources on the PowerToChoose.org website to help you understand the ins and outs of the Texas energy market and compare electric companies. It explains that instead of one utility owning a monopoly on your energy supply, a number of retail electric providers are competing for your business. What does this mean for consumers? A competitive market gives you the power to choose from a variety of smart options.

Using your power to choose has benefits

The best way to make the right decision on a retail electricity supplier is to understand the Texas energy market. There are many websites you can visit to learn more about energy in Texas. The PowerToChoose.org website for electric choice makes sure you have information such as:

  • Types of plans: Many providers offer flexible contracts with plans that range from one month to multiple years. If you're living in an apartment with a short-term lease, a month-to-month energy plan could be a better option for you than a long-term plan. However, if you own a home and don't plan to move anytime soon, a long-term plan could be a good option for you.
  • Questions to ask: There are some questions you should ask before you switch to a new provider. Here are just a few: How much am I paying per kilowatt hour? Is there a cancellation fee? Is there a monthly fee? What happens if I miss a payment?
  • Sources of energy: You’ve got the power to choose between brown energy and green energy solutions in Texas. Green energy, also called renewable energy, can be generated by wind farms and solar arrays. Your house won't be directly powered by renewable energy if you choose this option, but green energy will be put into the Texas power grid, helping reduce the state’s overall production of brown energy.
